The newly selected candidates are going to become a part of the state government. Everyone is being assigned important responsibilities to work as boring technicians.

The Chief Minister said that in the last six and a half years, the fair and transparent recruitment process has been taken forward in the state. By the double engine government of the state, in the year 2022, 1,438 candidates were selected by the Public Service Commission for the post of Junior Engineer of Irrigation and Water Resources Department.

The Chief Minister said that before the year 2017, the youth of the state were facing an identity crisis. Today, wherever the youth and citizens of Uttar Pradesh go in the country, they are treated with respect. The state is moving towards achieving the goal of self-reliance. Hard work is our biggest certificate. We should contribute to the overall development of the state by working honestly. The vision of a developed India following the path of self-reliance following the five pledges given by the Prime Minister should be in the minds of all of us. India will become developed only when we overcome the mentality of slavery, every citizen of the country will feel proud of his heritage and will work for unity and integration.

The Chief Minister said that the Prime Minister repeatedly mentions that a person should be aware of his duties along with his rights. If we discharge our duties then the rights themselves will be secured. If a person talks about his rights and does not talk about his duties, he deceives himself. Every citizen should have responsibilities towards the society and nation. It is our responsibility to make India a developed country in the world. As a civic duty, no matter what position a person holds, he should always perform his duties.

The Chief Minister said that Uttar Pradesh is a state with immense blessings of nature and God. The land here is extremely fertile. Adequate water resources are available in the state in the form of ground water and surface water. Perennial rivers flow in the state. At the time of independence, only 06 crore people lived in the state. At that time water from hand pumps, tube wells, ponds etc. was used for drinking water and irrigation etc. At present 25 crore population is living in the state. The state is entering a new era of industrialization. 70 percent irrigation in the state is done from ground water. The remaining 30 percent irrigation is done through canals etc. About 80 percent of the drinking water needs of the sector and about 85 percent of the industrial needs are also met from groundwater sources.

The Chief Minister said that if we always withdraw money from the bank and do not deposit it, the treasury will become empty. Similarly, we have been given an invaluable treasure in the form of water by nature and God, it should be the responsibility of all of us to conserve it. On one hand, we have to ensure the supply of drinking water, water for agriculture and industries, and at the same time we also have to conserve water. Many works are being done in this direction under the guidance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Tal Groundwater Scheme is an example of this. Many works like rain water harvesting and check dam construction are being done in the state. With these works, work is being done to establish the over-exploited development blocks and districts in the state as normal districts, so that there is no shortage of water for drinking water, irrigation and industries in the state. Water is essential for industries, agriculture and drinking water.

The Chief Minister said that along with the efforts of the Central and State Government for water conservation, the newly selected Assistant Boring Technician will have to connect himself and the people with the system of water conservation and planning. Presently every household tap scheme is being implemented in rural areas. This scheme is reaching every household in the state. Arrangements for rain water harvesting should be made to compensate for the exploited water. Efforts should be initiated to arrange rooftop water harvesting. Work should be done to connect government buildings and big buildings in urban bodies with this system. When these efforts are successful, underground water can be used for a long time and the rivers will also remain fresh.

The Chief Minister said that due to lack of underground water, boring cannot be done in dark zone places. Critical and semi-critical zones are warning areas. The state government made large-scale preparations and made provisions in the budget to provide relief to Annadata farmers in the field of irrigation. Provision has also been made in the budget so that minor irrigation programs can be taken forward. To take forward the Prime Minister’s campaign to double the income of farmers, works like power supply are being done continuously to provide free irrigation facility to farmers from canals and irrigation facility at minimum rate from other irrigation means.

The Chief Minister said that life cannot be imagined without water. In a state like Uttar Pradesh, when there is late rainfall, agricultural work is done using conserved water. The farmers of the state had started planting paddy on time due to delay in monsoon this year and last year through irrigation means like canals, tube wells etc. Continuous electricity supply was being provided to the tube well. Crops were seen blooming everywhere in the state. This situation was not there in other states, because not every state has this kind of good fortune.

A short film related to Rural Water Supply Department was screened in the programme.

The program was also addressed by Jal Shakti Minister Swatantradev Singh and Minister of State for Jal Shakti Ramkesh Nishad. On this occasion, Chief Secretary Durga Shankar Mishra, Principal Secretary Namami Gange and Rural Water Supply Anurag Srivastava, Secretary Namami Gange and Rural Water Supply Dr. Balkar Singh, Chief Engineer Minor Irrigation Department Ramakant Tiwari and other dignitaries were present.
