Pathania has further sought immediate operationalisation of Accountability Commission by filling up vacancies in it and by appointments of chairman of State Vigilance Commission, members of State Information Commission and nomination of chairman/members of State Human Rights Commission.

He has also sought proper implementation of MGNREGA and legislative, infrastructural and procedural reforms in the Panchayati Raj Act-1989 for effecting true decentralization. He has further underscored need for a separate food law for our state and striking off the faulty system of BPL enlistment. He has further lamented that it has been commonly observed in both the Houses of assembly that very less time is devoted to discussion on vital issues and fields like public health, education, public distribution system, governance-related
issues, employment, etc
