Referring to the enactment of various acts for ensuring good governance at the gross root level, the Minister said that the government has ensured that the people get the requisite necessary information about the working of the various departments and services within the stipulated time frame so that the menace of corruption is contained. "We have also seen to it that people get the requisite essential services required for their day-to-day living as early as possible and in this regard Public Services Guarantee Act is a landmark legislation which also ensures that an officer/official is also penalized if he fails to provide the requisite service within the given time frame", he maintained.
"The Government has also ensured democratic decentralization of powers to the grass root level by putting in place a vibrant panchayati raj system and empowering the same with a power of 14 vital departments so that the people at ground level are also involved in the day-to-day governance. Further Additional District Development Commissioner has been nominated as nodal officer for monitoring that the orders of empowerment are fully adhered to and any officer/official not adhering to the same will not be spared", the Minister said and announced that an amount of Rs. 20 lakh would be given to halqa under MGNREAGA for ensuring development.

Coming down heavily on the political parties trying to mislead the people, Ms. Itoo said that it is a recorded history during their tenure they only mislead the people by resorting to falsehood and hollow slogans. She said that the present government believes in sustained action rather than rhetoric and misleading people by flouting obnoxious ideas.
