By the way : Haryana reposes faith in IAS

manohar-lal-khattarWhen 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 bottoms-up 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 officials’ 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 stern action of the government is a clearly a message to the Haryana civil servants to mend their ways so as to re-impose faith in the civil services.
