Panaji, Apr 25: Goa Deputy Chief Minister Francis D'Souza today criticised bureaucrats in the state saying the IAS officers posted in the coastal state frequently visit Delhi which affects the administrative work.
"They (IAS officers) want the posting in Goa but they just wait for the opportunity to travel to Delhi. They don't want to stay here. It affects the administration in the state," D'Souza told PTI today.
"When secretary level officer is not available, then the administrative work hampers," he said.
According to D'Souza, working style of the state government needs to be changed.
"There is requirement of systemic corrections. We always complaint about the system but we being in the government should work towards correcting it," the Minister added.
Meanwhile, D'Souza rubbished reports of him being "upset" with Goa Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar after the secretaries attached to his departments were purportedly reshuffled without his knowledge.
"I never speak against the party or the government. My issue is systematic corrections which I always put across," the senior BJP leader, who represents the Mapusa constituency, said.
"I have a right to express my personal opinion but when I say that it does not mean I am speaking against the party," D'Souza added.
"I don't say that I should be taken into confidence before transferring secretaries. But I should have knowledge about the transfers," he said.
