Haryana re­poses faith in IAS

Gfiles - - ...BY THE WAY -

W hen Manohar Lal Khat­tar took charge of the Haryana ad­min­is­tra­tion as the Chief Min­is­ter, he ap­pointed loyal work­ers of his par­ent or­gan­i­sa­tion, Rashtriya Swayam­se­vak Sangh (RSS), in 22 dis­trict head­quar­ters as co­or­di­na­tors. One can see these low-pro­file RSS work­ers in each of the Deputy Com­mis­sioner's of­fices. Khat­tar's bot­tom­sup ap­proach in terms of ad­min­is­tra­tion is yield­ing re­sults. The Road Trans­port Au­thor­i­ties are a den of cor­rup­tion. On the ba­sis of the re­ports of the new co­or­di­na­tors, the gov­ern­ment de­cided to clean up the sys­tem. The chief Min­is­ter's fly­ing squad raided many RTA of­fi­cial's res­i­dences and of­fices and found ev­i­dence of mas­sive cor­rup­tion. Im­me­di­ate ac­tion was taken; some were sus­pended. The RTAs were headed by Haryana Civil Ser­vices (HCS) of­fi­cers. In a sud­den move, Chief Sec­re­tary DS Dh­esi is­sued an or­der that the Ad­di­tional Deputy Com­mis­sion­ers-cum-CEO, DRDA, of each dis­trict shall hold the charge of Sec­re­tary, Re­gional Trans­port Au­thor­ity, in their re­spec­tive dis­tricts, in ad­di­tion to their present du­ties, with im­me­di­ate ef­fect. Apart from this stern ac­tion against the cor­rupt RTAs, Khat­tar has au­tho­rised Dis­trict Col­lec­tors to dis­burse up to ru­pees one crore for any con­tin­gency pay­ments, in­clud­ing non-pay­ment or de­layed salaries of dis­trict em­ploy­ees. The s stern ac­tion of the gov­ern­ment is a clearly a me mes­sage to the Hary Haryana civil ser­van ser­vants to mend their ways so as to rere-im­pose faith in the civil ser­vices.
