Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha said on Saturday that all necessary steps are being taken to make the governance structure transparent and accessible to the public as his administration launches the “Janta Ki Scheme-Janta ki Bhagidari” campaign “.

The campaign aims to strengthen “Jan Bhagidari” (people’s involvement) and make it an integral part of transparent and accountable governance.

More than 33,099 development works are being carried out in the Union territory at a cumulative cost of around Rs 12,200 crore with their details available in the public domain as part of the major initiative to increase public participation in the overall development process, an official spokesperson said.

” The administration takes all necessary measures to make the entire governance structure transparent and accessible to the public. Every citizen can now access details about the type and extent of work underway in their area or any part of UT with one click, ”the lieutenant governor said.

He said the public has a right to know how much money is being spent on development work in their area and whether the project is completed on time.

“I want every decision taken by the government to serve the people within a reasonable time and respect the law of fairness and inclusiveness,” Sinha said.

The idea behind the “Janta Ki Scheme-Janta ki Bhagidari” campaign is to make the entire project planning and implementation process open to the general public who will be the ultimate beneficiary, the spokesperson said.

“Good governance requires that enough information is provided to the public so that they can see that decisions are made in accordance with rules and regulations,” the spokesperson said.

He said Jammu and Kashmir is number one in the country for taking the lead in implementing reforms in expenditure management.
