To ensure better governance and greater transparency in administration, the Chhattisgarh chief minister Raman Singh has launched his official website in Raipur on Sunday. The interactive people-centric platform www.cmo.cg.gov.in will connect the chief minister with the people online to resolve people's grievances and seek feedback.
The portal will communicate updated and detailed online information about the chief minister’s progamme, decisions, events and declarations. It will also share official orders, announcements and the statements on the cabinets’s decisions.
“For a state with pre-dominant tribal population and a very difficult and inaccessible terrain the technology-drive medium is the only solution for the chief minister where the interactive window aims to provide more transparent, wider and quicker two-way access to the outside world”, Aman Singh, principal secretary to the CM told Hindustan Times.
Immediately after the launch, Raman Singh said, “During the previous ten years as a chief minister I realized that the people’s participation is a key to ensure the success of democracy. I look forward for direct interaction with the people who can also contribute through their opinions and ideas to keep Chhattisgarh as most progressive state to be governed in better, accountable and transparent manner”.
Anyone willing to access the directory of the various state government departments can get it right here along with the contact details of cabinet ministers, secretaries, members of Lok Sabha/Rajya Sabha, commissioners and collectors. The updated news gallery, photo gallery, video gallery, social media updates and other features of the website will be beneficial for the common people and even media-persons, the officials cited.
