Governor Anandiben Patel has said that it is the habit of senior officials of the government to complicate work and to hang, shred and find deficiencies in files. There is nothing in the hands of the Chief Minister and Ministers. Everything is in the hands of the officials but the responsibility of getting them done is the responsibility of the ministers. Therefore the ministers should work very smartly with the officials. They don't have to fight with the officials. Otherwise it won't work. Discuss the file with them calmly and intelligently.
Addressing the enlightenment program for the members of the Eighteenth Legislative Assembly organized at Tilak Hall of Vidhan Bhavan on Saturday, the Governor said that senior officials of the government will never tell you how many files are pending, what should be the changes in the mandates. District officials and petty employees will tell you this. The Governor exhorted the MLAs and Ministers to stay away from contract leases and keep their children and relatives away from their work.
Said that when you fall in the trap of tender or your children and relatives interfere in your work then your image gets tarnished. Before becoming an MLA, our life passes very simply, but after becoming an MLA, the difference that comes in our living, the public sees it very closely. So eat roti and dal but with pride.
He told the ministers and MLAs that the government's resources and budget are limited. So the priorities of your work should be fixed. The most backward area in development should be given priority. If you think that you will get all the development done in your area and also make such promises to the public, then you will disappoint the people. This will tarnish your image as well. He asked the MLAs to have regular interaction with his workers as he has sweated for them.
He suggested the MLAs to prepare a document of their work and make it available to the public. She bluntly told the women MLAs that you cannot escape your responsibilities by pretending to be a woman. Vidhan Sabha Speaker Satish Mahana, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Suresh Khanna also addressed the enlightenment program.
