160 graveyards out of 175 included in the priority list have been cordoned off

The government is running a plan for a permanent siege of graveyards. The priority list of graveyards for siege has also been fixed. For the siege of graveyards in the district, 175 graveyards have been included in the priority list, but in about 16 years only 160 graveyards have been firmly under siege. The above things came to the fore in a review meeting on Friday in the DM room of the Collectorate regarding the permanent siege of the cemetery and the construction of the temple boundary wall. Referring to the priority list during the review, the DM said that in the period from 2006 to 2022, work related to the permanent siege of 160 graveyards has been completed. Presently 15 plans related to the cemetery siege are under process. It was informed that out of these 15 schemes, work has started in seven schemes. While eight others are under process due to technical reasons. In the meeting, the DM directed the Executive Engineer belonging to the Local Area Engineering Organization to complete the construction work being done for the siege of the graveyard at the earliest. He directed the District Minority Welfare Officer to get the list of government graveyards that are sensitive in nature and need siege from all the sub-divisional officers and sub-divisional police officers, in addition to the priority list related to their respective areas. So that further action can be possible in the light of departmental instructions.

In the meeting, the DM also reviewed the construction of the temple boundary in the district and obtained information related to the construction of the temple boundary from the District Planning Officer. Regarding the construction of the boundary wall of the temple, he directed the District Planning Officer to convene a meeting of the District Level Selection Committee to determine the priority list at the district level. He directed to obtain the land report from the concerned sub-divisional officer and circle officer regarding the temples in the list provided by the Bihar State Religious Trust Board related to the temple. DDC Sushant Kumar, Sub-Divisional Officer Ballia, and Bakhri, Sub-Divisional Police Officer Ballia and Bakhri, District Minority Welfare Officer, District Planning Officer, Executive Engineer of Local Area Engineering Organization, etc. were present in the meeting.
