Jamshedpur : The Chief Minister Raghubar Das on Sunday addressed about 40 grievances during the one-hour long second Janata Darbar at the Circuit House.
The Janata Durbar which began from 12 am saw a long queue of people complaining about being denied basic amenities due to family disputes and land problem.
The chief minister stressed that the government is dedicated to provide corruption free governance and has formed an anti-corruption bureau which would have branches even at block level so that people can lodge complaints of corruption at block in their district apart from dialing 181. The chief minister said that by November 15, 2015 all vacancies at schools, colleges and higher education institutions will be filled by the state government.
In the presence of the East Singhbhum deputy commissioner Amitabh Kaushal and senior superintendent of police, Anoop T Mathew, Das addressed the “Janata Darbar”.
However “Janata Darbar” (Public Hearing) which is held at an open ground was held in close-door as a result of which several of those turned up before the Chief Minister to get disappointed as they were asked to leave the place having handed over the written complaint. The Janata Darbar which began at 12 noon ended abruptly within an hour at 1 pm .
A lady teacher of a government middle school met the Chief Minister demanding cancellation of posting at a remote area of the district. The teacher, on condition of anonymity later told the reporters standing outside the Circuit House that the Chief Minister received the petition having given her an assurance that he would look into the matter.
Another teacher demanded that several primary school teachers in posted in naxal infested areas of Dumaria should be transferred. He said that there several teachers who are posted in the area from more than 12 years.
He went on to add that teachers have submitted applications to the authorities of the primary education board seeking transfer out of the Maoist-affected zone but step has been taken so far. He said that the teachers have to take jungle paths to reach their schools. The teachers are under tremendous mental pressure.
