HARYANA Chief Minister Manohar Lal seems to have learnt how to traverse the intricate world of government and governance. His confidence in ruling Haryana with vigour and authority has increased manifold after November 1, when Prime Minister Narendra Modi praised his working in Gurugram. Manohar Lal and his team of advisors have analysed the reasons for delay in implementing government decisions after ruling the state for two years. It was found that any file has the following steps: first, it goes to the Chief Secretary and then the Minister, and last of all, it reaches the Secretary of the concerned department. It was suggested to Manohar Lal that the files should not go to the Ministers as most of the decisions are taken by the cabinet, so the ministers have already consented to the decisions. So, it was decided that the file should go directly to the head of the department for implementation. This has created a furore among the ministers as most of the time they are not aware of the decisions and they can’t stop the file as the orders have been issued directly from the Chief Minister’s office. Even the secretaries are baffled, as now the onus of implementing the order lies on them. It has yet to be seen whether implementation has really geared up or not.
