Apart from implementing the 60-day vision document, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is now going to address all the problems and complaints received during the Suraaj Sankal Yatra on an individual basis.
Sources in the party informed that chief minister Vasundhara Raje had received as many as 10,000 memorandums during her 14,000-km Yatra ahead of Assembly polls. All these complaints and memorandums have been handed over to chief secretary Rajiv Mehrishi.
The chief secretary has been directed to address these problems on priority basis and ensure individual hearing of each and every case.
Earlier, a special team of BJP workers had compiled all the complaints and memorandums and scrutinized them on the basis of the departments which can address them. Later, the compiled document was send to the chief secretary’s office, which will now send these complaints to the concerned department for taking time-bound action.
Most of the complaints are related to basic amenities like road, water, electricity and cases related to crime.
After reducing her official convoy and refusing to shift to the chief minister’s residence, the move of addressing all problems submitted during Suraaj Yatra can be seen as another ‘radical’ move by the chief minister to reform governance in the state.
The exercise may have been motivated by the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. However, most leaders are of the view that all chief ministers have been undertaking such activities, but the only difference is that Raje is ensuring that all complaints are heard and get disposed of.
“Every chief minister gets complaints which are handed over to the officials to work upon.
But Raje is ensuring timely disposal of complaints, which will ultimately provide relief to th people,” said a senior BJP leader. “Whatever the reason behind Raje’s ‘good governance move’, but the new few weeks will be a really tough time for all government officials because they have to work at such a fast pace,” he added.
