Will give babus time to shun old style of working: BJP chief

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government will go soft on bureaucrats working in the "old mode" and will give them ample time to change their style of work before acting tough.

Replying to questions during a meet-the-press programme at Chandigarh press club, BJP's state president, Subhash Barala, said there were a few bureaucrats who continue with the work culture seen during the Congress rule and even ignore ministers.

"But getting tough or harsh or giving punitive action is not the style of the BJP government. We would amicably find out solutions and give them (the bureaucrats) time to change their style,'' Barnala said, but added that if the bureaucrats still did not change, suitable action would follow.
During the programme, Barnala also highlighted what he said was the BJP's corruption-free governance and referred to the CM window and other steps taken by chief minister ML Khattar in the past 100 days.

Barnala also denied there were any difference between Khattar and health minister Anil Vij and said both were scheduled to hold several functions together in days to come.

On the urea crisis, he said the shortage was due to the previous Congress government's failure to create a buffer stock. The BJP leader also accused the Aam Aadmi Party of creating propaganda against the land acquisition ordinance.

"My suggestion to AAP workers would be to focus on fulfilling the promise they have made to the people of Delhi and not spread false propaganda about the ordinance," he added.
