Odisha Housing & Urban Development Department joined the Mo Sarkar Initiative

Bhubaneswar: 10/1/20:The State Housing & Urban Development Department today joined the Mo Sarkar Initiative with an objective to bring in professionalism and effect behavioural change. This was formally announced by Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik at a function organised at the Lok Seva Bhawan.

Speaking on the occasion the Chief Minister said, “I am glad that our initiative to bring all the departments under Mo Sarkar by 31st March this year is catching up momentum.  And in this sequence, I am glad that the Housing and Urban Development Department is coming under Mo Sarkar initiative today.

Considering the rapid urbanisation, and the growing demand for modern infrastructure for providing efficient amenities, this is one of the most important wings of the government. I am happy that we are moving in the right direction in making both modern and humane provisions for the general public.

While we are set to provide quality drinking water to all the households in urban areas of the State, we are also providing basic rights to urban poor through Jaga Mission. Jaga Mission recently received World Habitat Award for providing land rights to more than 50 thousand urban poor families. The Drink From Tap Mission in Bhubaneswar is one of the most promising initiatives in the State taken up by this department.

I am glad that the department is fully prepared to function under Mo Sarkar. Necessary Capacity Building, technology up-gradation, and awareness efforts have been taken up.  I believe the department is fully prepared with complete alignment to mo Sarkar objectives.
