Odisha CM asks district Collectors to take bold decisions for good governance

Bhubaneswar: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today asked district collectors to take bold decisions and suggested them to follow the 3Ts formula of transparency, teamwork and technology, which he said will lead to another ‘T’ (transformation) in public life.

“Take bold decisions. Any bold decision taken for people centric governance will have my full support,” Patnaik said this while addressing the concluding day of the three-day collectors’ workshop here today.

Stating that he will review the progress made and changes brought about in the identified sectors in three months, Patnaik said “Let us resolve once again to work together towards a strong and vibrant Odisha.”

“In our resolve to fight corruption and to ensure last mile delivery, we have put in place transparent processes in the functioning of the government,” the chief minister said.

Patnaik said Odisha has registered 60 per cent success in construction of pucca houses under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana and rural housing scheme performed well in the state during the 2016-17 fiscal.

The chief minister awarded the districts of Sambalpur, Sundergarh and Mayurbhanj for performing well in pucca house construction.
