The con­cerned of­fi­cers per­son­ally re­sponded to the griev­ances raised. While giv­ing di­rec­tions to the of­fi­cers for timely ad­dress­ing the gen­uine is­sues of the pub­lic, the Min­is­ter ex­horted upon the head of de­part­ments to con­duct field visits fre­quently so as to knit a close co-or­di­na­tion with field staff which, in turn, would help to initiate a prompt re­sponse in case of any ex­i­gency".
