Addressing the officials present, Chief Minister Dr. Sarma instructed the DC and the Circle Officers of the revenue circles to ensure all land related scams being clandestinely practised by some unscrupulous elements in their respective offices and brokers are brought to end with immediate effect. The Chief Minister warned of stern actions on the concerned officials for failing to comply with his instructions.
Chief Minister Dr. Sarma said land sharks and land brokers forcefully grabbing land from genuine owners by conniving with certain unscrupulous government officials is a blot on the government and all measures necessary to break this nexus shall be taken by authority.
During his visit, Chief Minister Dr. Sarma also interacted with members of the general public who were visiting the DC’s office and enquired about the reasons for their visits. Dr. Sarma asked the District Commissioner to see that application’s for various approvals, certificates, etc. by members of the public are disposed off at the earliest so that the latter don’t have to unnecessarily make rounds of the former’s office.
