Chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat will have a direct conversation with the people of Uttarakhand on the lines of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Man Ki Baat’, but “with a difference”.

A government statement issued on Wednesday stated that Rawat will now have direct conversation with different sections of the society through video conference at tehsil and block levels.

The CM’s direct interaction with the people will take off on August 9 coinciding with the 75th anniversary of Quit India Movement. His first video conference will address high school and intermediate students at their respective subdivisions and blocks, the release stated.

“Interaction with the members of society is very important to ensure the participation of a common man in governance. The opinions of every member contributing in reformation of the society are very important,” said Rawat.

The CM, in a video conference on Wednesday, also directed district magistrates to ensure adequate arrangements for his interactions. He ordered district magistrates to be on “take action” mode in the wake of meteorological department’s heavy rain warning for the next 48 hours.

He also asked the officials to be on the vigil for road blockades in hill areas and ensure removal of debris as soon as possible.

Rawat is one of the keen listeners of the PM’s ‘Man Ki Baat’. He heard the last two programmes at a temple and an orphanage. He has asked his ministers to hold cleanliness drive regularly and upload the pictures via Twitter, Face book pages and other social media platforms.
