ASSURING IAS officers of all possible support to solve their genuine problems, Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav today called upon them to work honestly and devotedly for speedy development and progress of the State. The bureaucrats could play a pivotal role in making the State ‘Uttam Pradesh’, he observed adding that people should get quick justice and the officers should not yield to pressure of politicians irrespective of their party affiliation. However, the Chief Minister regretted the slow pace of work in certain departments and said that the State suffered losses worth crores of rupees due to inordinate delay in decision-making and advised them to give due respect to people’s representatives.
Addressing senior administrative officers while inaugurating the IAS Week at the Tilak Hall here on Friday, he said there was no match between the status and respect of the IAS officers and those working in multi-national companies, despite much higher salaries. He urged the officers to have a good rapport as well as grip on their subordinates.
He regretted that people were not getting justice and their problems were not being solved at the district level. It was for this that they approached MPs/MLAs or even the CM for justice and redressal.
The CM gave full credit to the officers for better law and order situation, increased GDP and no communal tension and said the officers must not forget people’s expectations and aspirations. Earlier, welcoming the Chief Minister, chief secretary R Ramani said the IAS cadre would do its best for effective implementation of government plans and policies besides fulfilling aspirations and expectations of people.
Almost all the senior officers, including Board of Revenue chairperson Neera Yadav, agriculture production commissioner NC Bajpai, principal secretaries, HODs, DM and were present.
