Public officials are servants of people says Narayanswamy
The Minister of state in the Prime Minister’s Office and Minister for Administrative Reforms and Public Grievances, V Narayanswamy, inaugurated the first ever district- level workshop in the country on 'Sevottam' at Thane. He said that we (public officials) are servants of people and asked them to work towards satisfying the needs of the people.
Narayanswamy said that the Good Services Delivery Bill, Lok Pal Bill, Public Procurement Bill, Benami Transaction Bill and Accountability of Judiciary Bill are likely to be introduced soon in the parliament. He pointed to the fact that the RTI Act, 2005 has led to a check on the government officials and ministers and has brought about transparency in administration.
Thane district has a population of about 1.2 crores which is almost equivalent to the population of Delhi. The “Sevottam” model is likely to be replicated in many districts of the country.
