Reviewing the projects of Irrigation Department, Chief Minister issued instructions to the officers to take sufficient measures to prevent damage to the harvest by Fika, Dhaila, Levda, Koshi, Pravin and Devhi rivers during rainy season. Stating that this not only damaged agricultural lands through erosion but also caused loss of human lives, he asked them to prepare proposal of preventive measures and submit it to the Government within 15 days, so that with the coordination of the Centre amount of Rs. 3 crores could be made available. Mr. Bahuguna said that there had been a good harvesting of Wheat crop. Keeping in mind the interest of the farmers, the Centre too had set a good support price for Wheat. He instructed the District Magistrate to monitor the purchase centres personally and ensure that no any kind of harassment of farmers took place.

He warned the departmental officers that irregularities, slackness or corruption would not be tolerated in development works. He made it clear that overall development of the state was in government's  priority list and every government official was responsible to take all the development works, initiated by the government, to the last person diligently.
Parliamentary Affairs and Finance Minister Indira Hridayesh said that the government was looking for the solution to problems relating to fourth category land in the state and very soon a positive result was bound to come.
