People are real owners and it is important to take their feedback on services: Naveen Patnaik

Bhubaneswar:25/9/19: The entire infrastructure, budget and medical colleges are for the people and by the people’s money. All these institutions exist from the citizen’s money for the benefit of the citizen, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik said today.

Addressing Chief District Medical Officers of 30 districts of Odisha, over video conferencing today, Naveen said that the people are real owners and it is important to take their feedback on services.

“Through the Mo Sarkar initiative, I will be personally talking at random to patients who have availed our services (State Government medical services). And everybody in the system will also do the same. Based on this (feedback), immediate follow up action will be taken,” said Naveen.

Citing an anecdote from his early days as Odisha CM, Naveen said, “Long ago in 2001 there was the tragic Mango kernel incident in Kashipur. I visited Kashipur where a local doctor shone as a bright spot amidst gloom and tragedy.”

The CM said that people of Kashipur trusted the aforementioned doctor more than anyone in the police or local administration.

“Four IAS probationers were deputed there and asked to follow the good work that the doctor was doing,” he added.

Naveen’s interaction with CDMOs holds importance, as there are a few days left for the Mo Sarkar initiative’s launch. The ambitious citizen-centric programme, will be launched by the Odisha CM on the occasion of Gnadhi Jayanti (October 2).
