Listen to people: Raje to ministers

Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje has instructed her council of ministers to dedicate two hours in the party office and hear grievances of people. 

A timetable has also been prepared according to which three to four ministers will camp at the party office from Monday to Friday. 

The decision was taken after complaints by party workers that despite a massive mandate in the Assembly elections, officials and ministers were not available to people and party workers.

The initiative will be implemented from Monday under which people or party workers coming with some work must have a recommendation letter from their respective district or mandal president. Ministers will try to find on-the-spot solution of the problems.

A weekly report will also be prepared about the number of complaints disposed or lying pending. 

“It’s a good initiative and everyone in the state is free to meet the ministers and get their problems solved. Though people are free to meet BJP leaders anywhere, our party has instructed the ministers to hear public grievances daily,” said a senior BJP leader.

Ministers have been asked not to hold any tour during the working days, he added.The state Congress targeted the BJP over this initiative, saying it’s a mechanism to solve the problems of party workers only.

“If someone has any problem, why can’t he meet the minister directly? What is the need to first get a recommendation letter from local leaders? It simply means that the entire exercise is meant for party workers and not for the common man,” said state Congress chief Sachin Pilot.

In the previous Congress government, every minister, including the CM, would hold public meetings that were open for all, he added.

Pilot blamed the BJP for misleading people by holding such exercises, which have given no results at the ground level. 

“Last year they organised a government-at-the-doorstep programme and visited a few divisions with all the government machinery. The government had received thousands of complaints but no one knows their present status,” said Pilot.
