The Chief Minister further directed the district collectors that there is a need to update comprehensive information related to SDGs and take responsibility for monitoring the SDG reports along with the department heads every month. “At least 2 review meetings should be taken up with the district collectors and develop strict SOPs in place. Our target is to reach 100% in the education department. There have been revolutionary changes and development programs that our government has brought in the fields of medicine, health, education, and agriculture which are not found in any other state in the country, and it should reflect as achievements in SDG” CM YS Jagan Mohan Reddy said.
