Mumbai: Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok
Chavan today said applications of transfers and promotions
would not be entertained at the `Janata Durbar` which has been
revived by the state unit Congress from today.
Chavan while addressing over 200 people who had come to
the party office in South Mumbai said only genuine individual
cases would be given priority and urged the state Congress
unit to create a special email id for the benefit of the
people who live outside Mumbai so that they can mail their
applications to the party office first.
"I expect people to come up with development issues
concerning their constituency and overall public interest
which would help the government to frame policy decisions.
Party workers should bring individual cases if there is
injustice meted out the common man," he said.
Chavan said interactions with the common man have been an
ongoing process in the state government through `Lokshahi Din`
at Mantralaya and the district collectorate offices.
"Issues of the common man should be resolved at the
district level itself. If it is brought to our notice that
redressal of grievances is not taking place at the
collectorate level, I will not hesitate to take action against
the officer concerned," Chavan added.
He said the party should organise such `Janata durbars`
at the district unit party offices as well. Chavan urged party
workers not to spend money on garlands and bouquets when he
visits the party office.
"Instead you can donate the money to the party where it
can be utilised for providing books to the poor children for
their education," he said.
