Best Practices in Ranga Gram Panchayat(Masaliya Block)
Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojana(SAGY)
Hon’ble MP Sri Shibu Soren, Dumka Lok sabha Constituency selected Ranga Gram Panchayat in Masaliya Block of Dumka District (Jharkhand) to be developed under Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojana(SAGY).
As per the guideline, environment generation activities were started with the co-ordination of all concerned department be it – Education, Health, Sanitation, Animal husbandry, Sports, SHG’s, Block Office, Social welfare etc. Not only concerned Government departments but local youth groups, occupational groups, PRIs and senior citizen groups supported in environment generation activities-cum-camps. Through different type of cultural activities, camps, rallies, sports competition, wall paintings, Swachhta Abhiyan, Rozgar Diwas, Panchayat Diwas and others activities, people were informed about Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojana(SAGY) and also educated regarding basic duties and rights which can be used in betterment of selected Gram Panchayat Ranga. All these activities have been done under the able guidance of Hon’ble MP and Deputy Commissioner, Dumka.
Some of the basic positive paradigm shifts have been observed in Ranga Panchayat. Among these positive changes, here I would like to mention one significant change which is hand cleaning before and after meal. Due to extensive campaign about hand cleaning in students of Govt./Private schools by Government officials, NGOs and others organizations, now students have adopted hand cleaning as a good habit and they are cleaning their hands properly before and after meal. Due to this behavioral change illness in students is less occurring in compare to earlier days and students are excelling in sports, music and handicrafts along with study. It shows the multidimensional development of students. School administration is also supporting and promoting of this good initiative.
After having educated about SAGY, people have come forward to participate in the making, planning and finalizing the need based schemes for Ranga Panchayat. People of Ranga Panchayat carefully selected the schemes along with cites and they fixed the priority as per the need. Village Development Plan (VDP) of Ranga Panchayat has been prepared by the local people itself through Gram Sabha with the help of technical departments and district administration. It shows that the people have started participating in the Development Process of Ranga Panchayat under the constant leadership of Hon’ble MP Sri Shibu Soren.
