Stalin’s report card, 75% announcements fulfilled

Chennai: Call it a self-appraisal report or a report card of his eight-month-old DMK regime, Tamilnadu Chief Minister M K Stalin has said 75 per cent of the announcements made by his government had been fulfilled.

In a video address, recalling the key files signed by him on the day of assuming office, said during the eight months rule, a total of 1,641 announcements were made in the Governor’s address, general budget, agriculture budget and under Rule 110 in the State Assembly.

Of this, Government Orders were issued in respect of 1,238 announcements, which constitutes about 75 per cent. The remaining announcements would certainly be fulfilled and there should not be any doubt about it.

Detailing the monthly wise files received by him, Stalin said ever since he assumed office on 7 May last year, a total of 2,683 files had been received by him of which 2,619 files have been cleared.

The decisions on the remaining 64 files are in various stages of discussions, Stalin said, adding his government would ensure that no files are pending.

Observing that quick movement of files was a sign of good governance and that his government was an example for that, he said Ministers have been directed to quickly dispose of the files coming to them for decisions, but also monitoring them.

Stalin also said that he is not a Chief Minister who pass orders by sitting in the State Secretariat, but hit the ground, move with the people, understand their needs and fulfil them.
