To get a first hand knowledge of how government schemes were functioning in the state, Sikkim Chief Minister Pawan Chamling would embark on a 36-day ’village-to-village’ tour this month.

The tour was scheduled to begin on May 17 and will continue till June 21 but could be extended “on the demands of the people”, Mr. Chamling decided at a meeting to review functioning of various schemes, an official release said here today.

He directed that all heads of departments would accompany him in the tour to assess and review works undertaken by the government in the past 17 years of governance.

“We will see where our weakness lies and even take decisions on the spot,” he said at the meeting attended by ministers and heads of the departments yesterday.

It would be a new experiment not only for the State but even for the entire country, he added.

The chief minister reviewed functioning of most of the government schemes during the meeting.
