Bhubaneswar: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Saturday stressed on citizen-centric governance and asked officials to look at all service from the citizen’s point of view.
Addressing the senior officers’ meeting, Patnaik said, “The hallmark of good governance is citizen satisfaction and frankly you will all agree that there is huge scope for improvement.”
He asked the officials whether various departments of the government take any feedback from citizens about their level of satisfaction.
He said all the government offices exist for citizens and run with their money. “What is the level of citizen satisfaction in these offices? I want you to look at all service from the citizen’s point of view. Totally Citizen Centric Governance,” he said.
“I write your Performance Appraisal Reports. People write my Performance Appraisal Report. I want a link between these two. Beth of us has to be accountable. I sincerely mean it,” the CM stated.
The Odisha CM further said a government wins the trust of people by doing good work and it repeatedly enjoys the trust of people by sustained good works.
“We have now reached a certain stage in development and governance from where we should take a leap to the next level. People are aspirational and that should motivate us to provide effective services,” he said.
He added, “This term I want to focus on employment and value addition on a big scale comparable to the best in the world Australia….South Korea…. Singapore. Bold industrialisation and world-class infrastructure MSME clusters Start-Up Hubs.”
