Around 4-month-old Uttar Pradesh-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is not leaving any stone unturned in bridging the vacuum between the ruling government and the public as UP ministers will be chairing meetings with them as well as party workers every Monday and Tuesday.
Commenting on the matter, Shrikant Sharma, UP’s energy minister said that on Monday and Tuesday the ministers will interact with the public by conducting Janata Darshan.
When asked about the ministerial works, Sharma said that on the rest of the days, they will be performing their ministerial duties and also undertake tours.
Terming BJP government as ‘people’s government’, BJP’s UP spokesperson, Manish Shukla said, “The new system will provide two days for the public and party workers to meet the respective ministers at the same place (Sachivalaya) and put forward their grievances.”
In order to push the development works, the BJP government will also be forming special groups to address development-related issues of elected members of the state.
Speaking to PTI, UP Cabinet minister Sidhartha Nath Singh said, “The 23 groups will address issues of elected members of the state related to development. This way a senior and junior minister will resolve issues raised by MLAs. A unique model of Gujarat is being adopted for micro-development of UP.”
The matters concerning the development in Uttar Pradesh seem to arise just a few days after the BJP chief, Amit Shah had arrived in Lucknow on his 3-day visit.
