Shivraj Singh Chouhan
Bhopal, Jan 13: Immediately after Arvind Kejriwal's failed attempt to address public issues through a 'Janata Durbar'. Madhya pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan took a lead at not only taking similar public issues, but solving them on the spot.

When Kejriwal was struggling to manage the crowds at the Durbar, Chouhan had already finished his first round of public appearance in government offices and on the road. On Friday, Chouhand emoved two government officers of the Kolar Municipality, suspended two others and fined a joint director for smoking in office.

Chouhan received a mail from one Prem Narayan Gosi who complained that he has been pursuing an application in Kolar Municipal Corporation to make an alteration in the local body's map since October last year, but officials have not shown any eagerness to solve the matter. Gosi's plot is much larger than what is shown in the Municipality map. He has been applying to change it, but to no avail.

The very next moment, according to a Times of India report, the Chouhan could be seen walking the office of the municipality and demanding the file. Following that, he went from department to department, quizzing officials and taking action then and there if he got a hunch of corruption.

He did not stop there. Immediately after announcing the anti-corruption helpline on Twitter, Chouhand dug up a part of the road at Patrakar Colony to inspect the quality of the material used. He called for a testing machine and was satisfied with the quality and the proportion of Asphalt and Gravel. Saturday night, he went to the shelter homes with his wife and a team of ministers to inspect their facilities.

Unlike the Aam AAdmi Party's Janata Durbar, he does not want common man to come to him for problems, but would rather go to them himself. Addressing a public meeting at Alirajpur, he clearly stated that he would crack a whip on corruption, wherever it occurs. "Whoever commits corruption will be dealt with an iron fist," he said. Top IAS officers like principal secretaries were also warned of serious consequences if a scam of any kind happened. He further added that all those who demanded bribe would go to jail.
