All government decision should have core focus on public interest: Hon'ble CM

Published By : Admin | January 11, 2011 | 05:21 IST

Interest of the public should be at the core of all government policies and not the political mileage they can fetch. While addressing the interactive session on good governance, held at Gandhinagar today as a part of Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit, Gujarat Chief Minister Shri Narendra Modi also pitched for reforms in the electoral process saying that frequent elections at regular interval makes it difficult to maintain consistency in the process of growth.

“It should be onus of the government that it completes the entire term it is elected for. Further, it should take all the decisions in the interest of the public without any consideration for favorable outcome in the election,” he said.

He was of the opinion that if the government can win the trust of the people, it can easily ensure spontaneous public participation in all of the government programs.

Citing Gujarat’s higher agricultural growth rate as one of the desired results achieved through good governance, he further said, “Gujarat has adopted mantra of P2 G2 for the good governance, which means pro-active pro-people good governance. This model has worked successfully & set example to follow.”

“The leadership can only set framework for the good governance, but it is only the team work that can produce desired results. The team Gujarat has collectively implemented all of the government decisions and as a result, the effectiveness of the government administration has reached to a new level,” he added. Giving an example of such approach, he cited Chintan Shibir as the best exercise for taking policy decision.

While taking part in the discussion, Gujarat’s Chief Secretary Shri A. K. Joti mentioned some achievements the state has made on fronts such as rural development, education, agriculture and so on thanks to good governance.

Shir P. N. Roychaudhri, Principal Secretary; Shri P. K. Lehri, former Chief Secretary; Smt. Manjula Subramanyam, Vigilance Commissioner; Dr. D. R. Kartikey; Dr. Madhav Mehra, Dr. Samir Barua; Dr. Bakul Dholakia and Dr. Tanuja Agarwal also took part in the discussion and expressed their views on the subject.
