Bhubaneswar: After being re-elected to power consecutively for the fifth stint and in his bid to make good governance better and more effective as well as aptly accountable and properly people-friendly, Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today once again passed on five more mantras (tips) to his Council of Ministers.

Addressing his Council of Ministers today, the Chief Minister said, “I have received the monthly report of your departments. Thank you all for submitting on time. Today I would like to speak out on five subjects.”

Listing out one by one, he directed, “Embark on extensive tour. This will help you knowing about your department’s service delivery at the grassroots level. Make surprise visits to the different offices and institutions under your department. This will expedite the delivery of government services meant for the people. During tours, meet the people, know their problems and gather direct feedback from the beneficiaries of government programmes, schemes and other citizen-centric services.”

“5T (Transparency, Technology, Teamwork Transformation and Time) are most important for the development and change. Hence, you have to look into its observance personally,” the Chief Minister underlined.

He emphasized, “Computerisation is a must for transparency and ability. Hence, give special attention to the cent percent work of your department done through OSWAS.”    

Soon after the significant meeting at the State Secretariat here, Odisha Agriculture & Higher Education Minister Arun Kumar Sahoo informed media, “The Council of Ministers have been instructed as well as directed for embarking on extensive tour so that the ongoing government activities could be inspected.”

He added, “Secondly, direction was also given for the surprise visit. Thirdly, interacting with the people and be apprised about their problems. Fourthly, gathering feedback on the government services provided to the citizens.”

“The Chief Minister has also directed all the Ministers to observe his 5Ts mantra in true letter and spirit,” stated the Agriculture & Higher Education Minister Minister.

On being queried about the outcome of the monthly progress report submitted to the Chief Minister by the Council of Ministers, he replied, “The Hon’ble Chief Minister has thanked all the Ministers for having submitted their respective reports on time.”   

In his reactions, School & Mass Education Minister Samir Ranjan Dash said, “It is not only today. Hon’ble Chief Minister has been instructing and directing us from the very beginning for which the people of Odisha have been reposing faith in him for five times. These tips and able leadership of our Chief Minister is the key to success.”
