Corporates will soon learn from Govt - Good thing

Yogi Adityanath is covering all bases to ensure that government and other officials are working around the clock to improve law and order and governance - both historically problematic - in Uttar Pradesh. Today, they've been put on notice with the warning that the Chief Minister could call them "at any time" on landlines at their offices between 9 am and 6 pm; unless they are able to justify not being able to take his call because they were at work elsewhere ("in the field"), penalties could follow.

The alert was issued today on behalf of the 44-year-old Chief Minister by Shrikant Sharma, a senior minister in the new government of India's most populous state.

Senior police officers have been told that because they are often out inspecting areas or supervising their juniors, they will have a little more flexibility with the new rule; senior administrative officials - District Magistrates - however, will find it tougher to excuse themselves. The Chief Minister's rationale is that if the top bosses are present at office, juniors will have to follow. All senior officers have also been ordered to immediately close any home offices.

Yogi Adityanath, a saffron robe-wearing monk, has made it clear that he expects his administration to put in long hours. Within days of taking over in March, he warned that anyone who had issues with "at least 18-20 hour" workdays should consider an alternative career. He has launched surprise attendance checks at ministries and cancelled 15 holidays observed usually to commemorate the birth anniversaries of famous Indian leaders, all as part of an attempted overhaul of his state's dark record of crime.

However, days ago, two police stations in and near Agra were attacked by mobs that allegedly included members of the Hindu Yuva Vahini, a youth outfit he launched many years ago. Yesterday, a member of parliament from his party, the BJP, warned in Lucknow that she would "skin alive" a cop who she declared guilty of corruption. more  

It is also important to haul up the administrative and police machinery. But, at the same time, there should be no political interference in their functioning. Punitive actions should also be taken against MPs/MLAs etc who misuse their official positions.
Also I have read somewhere that some 'VIPs' are not ready to forego their 'lal-batti' culture. Strict action should be taken by the CMs or other concerned minsters to crush such defiance! more  
The point is legitimate. Senior officers have to move out for many things. But that should never be allowed to result in backlog in file disposal. The people on the move may have to devote longer hours which is common in all organisations including Government and Corporate setups. They are paid a higher salary part of it for extra working hours. 8 hours day is more minions. more  
People are just copying the directives issued by the PM. If governance has to succeed and be available to citizens the officers and their subordinates need to move to the feild and supervise the ongoing programs and activities and understand the ground realities.
They cannot deliver sitting in airconditioned offices more
