Mumbai: The State government is completing four years by August-end and there is one year to go for the election. Accordingly, the government has started preparing and asked all its ministers and MLAs to collect information from concerned secretaries and district collectors about the various schemes and make a 15-minute presentation to chief minister Devendra Fadnavis.
Fadnavis has asked all his ministers and MLAs to brief him about five major decisions taken by their respective departments and the government with its impact on the social life.
The chief minister has sent a letter to them and directed them to get the information about the decisions, that should not be administrative, but like beneficiary schemes. He also sought information from them about the number of beneficiaries, impact on social life and total expenditure on the scheme by the department.
Additionally, each presentation should contain a comparison of the decision with a similar one, if taken, by the previous regime. The presentation must have comparison about implementation during the last government and this government’s tenure.
The same dictate is applicable to all secretaries of each department and district collectors. They have to prepare their own report card. The secretaries have to prepare it with ministers, while the district collectors have to make it with BJPs MLA.
Recently, in Mumbai, BJP Chief Amit Shah asked all MLAs and MPs to go to the common man and make aware them about government schemes. The central government has been toying with the idea of holding simultaneous elections for sometime, but the EC has turned down the idea.
