Bhubaneswar: Odisha government on Tuesday included the Women & Child Development & Mission Shakti department under the ‘Mo Sarkar’ Initiative in order to implement different schemes meant for the women and children effectively.
Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik launched the initiative at Lok Seva Bhawan and interacted with some women through video conferencing.
“The State government has launched several welfare projects under Women & Child Development & Mission Shakti for the women and children and it is impotent to ensure that the beneficiaries get benefit from such projects,” Pataik said.
“Employee of Women & Child Development & Mission Shakti have played a vital role in bringing down the maternal mortality rate (MMR) and Infant mortality rate (IMR) in the State. And because of their dedicated and selfless works the ‘Mamata’ scheme has now become a model for other state in India,” he added.
The Chief Minister further said that the Mission Shakti has been strengthened in Odisha and it has empowered the women of the State.
The CM also directed the concerned officials not to allow any sort of corruption in their respective departments rather work for the betterment of the beneficiaries, which, he said, is the biggest success.
