Expressing dissatisfaction with the pace of development works, Ms Mayawati underlined ''the officers need to conduct spot verification...development works cannot be reviewed by sitting in air-conditioned rooms.'' Stressing on the pace and quality of development schemes, the BSP supremo warned the officials to either pull up their socks and dispose of public grievances honestly or be ready to face the music.
