No excuse for non-performance, workaholic CM tells Parliamentary Secretaries
Chief Minister Ms. Mamata Banerjee urged the parliamentary secretaries to monitor work in their departments as well as their respective districts in a meeting at Nabanna.
The Chief Minister made it clear that the parliamentary secretaries will be made accountable just like the ministers in case of incomplete projects in the departments.
She asked them to monitor projects and find out areas that need special attention, following which, they have to assist in expediting those.
The Chief Minister told the parliamentary secretaries to approach her directly in case they do not get necessary cooperation from the minister or secretary of the department. She said that non-cooperation will not be treated as an excuse for non-performance.
The Chief Minister asked the parliamentary secretaries to interact with the district magistrates on a weekly basis and ensure that the projects are completed on time. She told them that the parliamentary secretaries have been given full freedom to work but they should act promptly.
