BHUBANESWAR: Chief minister Mohan Charan Majhi on Friday directed secretaries of all departments to prepare a blue print for implementation of promises made by the BJP in its manifesto for the recently concluded Assembly election in the state.

The chief minister after starting work from the CMO in the Lok Seba Bhavan met all secretaries and reiterated that the focus of the government will be on fulfilling the promises which are meant for the welfare of the people. “Our government is the people’s government and our work should reflect this in every sphere,” he said.

The chief minister said that the departments should start work immediately and prepare action plans for implementation of different promises made in the manifesto. There should be a fixed timeline for execution of the schemes.

Majhi, however, acknowledged that all the promises cannot be implemented at the same time. Some can be implemented within 100 days, others will take more time, he said and added that work for the promises should start immediately.

Stating that a government should remain accountable to the people 24 hours a day, the chief minister asked the secretaries to ensure that this is reflected in the functioning of their respective departments.

Majhi said, in 12 years, Odisha will complete 100 years of its creation as a separate state. Similarly, the country will reach 100 years of its independence in 2047. “Keeping in view both these milestones, the government should prepare a Vision-2036. The government will have to complete what the previous government could not achieve in 24 years. We will have to work 24 hours a day to make Odisha a leading state of the country in five years,” he stated.

The chief minister also said that the focus of the government should be on resolving the grievance of the common people. “If we meet people and discuss their problems, they will develop confidence for the government and administration. There should no wall between the people and government,” he said.

The chief minister asserted that the focus of the government will be on education, health, social justice, improving the standard of living of people and create an atmosphere of transparency and honesty in the administration at all levels.

Chief secretary Manoj Ahuja, development commissioner Anu Garg, additional chief secretary in the CMO NB Dhal, all the additional chief secretaries and secretaries attended meeting.
