I have taken the responsibility of Chairperson of State Social Welfare Board, Odisha since 11.05.2016. Now the Board in at the cross-road. Out of 14 no’s Programmes for the welfare & development of Women & Children the Board has only two programme at present namely Rajiv Gandhi National Creche Scheme and Family Counselling Centre. It is high time for us to establish our potential. Introspecting, reviewing the past, working hard for the present and visioning for the future shall be our goal. I shall not forget to invite cooperation, Support & suggestions from every quarter and corner of Odisha who have been with us since a long time. They may feel free to ventilate their problems & constraints if any in implementation of programmes and creating a fair image of the Board in general public. Our joint venture with commitment is the need of the hour.
