On contractual basis at the district level, the appointment of ANM should be done so that the health service can be improved.

A group of local craftsmen will be formed. Government will buy their products. The work of the construction of desk benches for schools will be given to the local craftsmen so quality products would be available at lower price.
The Chief Minister said that in the villages where more than 50 percent of the population belongs to the tribals, constitute the tribal development committee in that village and in the village where tribal population is less than 50 percent, the village development committee should be constituted. The president of committee will be a woman. These committees will work for selection and implementation of schemes for the village.
