Chief Minister’s Secretary Ashwini Kumar gave details.
What are the demands of the people?
The government needs to do this so that people can see their work and check for themselves.
1 Disclose and disclose all work details paid by the Accountant General.
2 Satellite of last 4 years – where work is being done by releasing satellite images. Declare it.
3 Disclose the list of all the places where the work has been done, name of the contractor, address, phone number.
4 Disclose how much money has been paid to whom and details of public participation.
5 Make public the names and places of work of the people who have worked.
If such a BJP-style government works, a clean administration can be achieved by announcing the collusion of officials and local BJP leaders. Therefore, the Chief Minister of Gujarat will not disclose these details. The monsoon will come so there will be no evidence that this work has not been done due to flooding. It will be declared that the soil has been filled with water. (Translated from Gujarati news of this website)
