Guwahati, March 9 (IANS) Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Wednesday asked Chief Secretary V.K. Pipersenia to instruct all the departmental heads not to slow down the development process under the pretext of model code of conduct in place for the upcoming assembly elections.
Gogoi’s instruction came in the wake of complaints that some officers have slowed down the process of development on this count.
Pipersenia was asked to ensure that the ongoing developmental activities are not slowed down in any manner and that they are being carried out expeditiously so that the fruits of development reach out to all sections of people.
The chief minister said that he would monitor and review the ongoing development work from time to time and would not tolerate any laxity on the part of officials slowing down the pace.
