The cabinet ministers in the Democratic Front (DF) government have been imparted lessons on dos and don’ts by their political masters to refurbish the image of the ruling Congress and NCP. Taking the lead, NCP president Sharad Pawar has asked the party ministers to modify their daily conduct to re-connect with grassroots workers. They have also been told to project their policy decisions to the people in right perspective. NCP officials have received complaints against ministers for not providing adequate time to attend to their local problems. But the general complaint is that the ministers find themselves as prisoners of coterie which has lead to a divide between them and genuine workers. Chief minister Ashok Chavan has asked the ministers to give utmost priority to the people’s projects. Chavan is personally holding reviews and discussions with bureaucrats to expedite the projects. Unlike Pawar, who is an absolute authority in NCP, the Congress finds itself striving for organisational leadership. Yet, the concerns remain the same. Bureau report – NMTV News.
