Transparent administration along with development will be the main focus of the Trinamool Congress (TMC) government in its second term.
The state has witnessed a sea change in terms of development in the first five years of the government led by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
Soon after taking oath as Chief Minister of the state for the second time, Banerjee has given clear direction to all the ministers to plunge into work of their respective departments to expedite development.
Banerjee will be holding the first administrative meeting at Town Hall on June 3 and thus senior officials of all departments are busy preparing report on the present situation of the ongoing projects.
Banerjee had said after announcing names of the council of ministers that a few months got wasted due to the election resulting in slow down in the development work. Thus, everyone has to start working once again without wasting any more time to maintain the pace of the development work.
On Monday, Suvendu Adhikary said that his transport department will be a “smart and transparent one”. According to an official of the transport department, the message was loud and clear. “It has reached to officials of all ranks,” he said.
Most of the ministers and ministers of state including Gautam Deb, Suvendu Adhikary, Sovan Chatterjee and Lakhmi Ratan Shukla have already taken a stock of the present situation of their respective departments on Monday.
Dr Shashi Panja, minister of state for health, also held meeting with senior officials of her department. Shukla, who is the first time MLA and minister of state for sports and youth affairs, went to his office at New Secretariat.
