Transparent and people-centred good governance is need of the hour, says VP Naidu while addressing 2016 batch IAS officers
While addressing IAS officers of 2016 batch in New Delhi who have been posted as Assistant Secretaries with the Government of India, Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu asked them to look upon people as active agents of transforming India, and not merely as 'target groups' or 'beneficiaries' as we used to call them and emphasized that the transparent and people-centred good governance was the need of the hour.

According a official press release, the Vice President said that unless this approach became an integral part of our planning and implementation process, the programmes would not succeed.

The release added Naidu saying that streamlining service delivery and effective, transparent, people-centred good governance are the need of the hour.

In his address, he stressed on the need to address challenges in delivering basic services to the common man. Aim at greater 'efficiency' and 'effectiveness' and build a culture of 'evaluation' and constant 'learning' in our governance systems, it added.

"The administration has to adopt a more empathetic, responsive and inclusive approach. It should be an approach that cares for women, differently abled, the marginalized and those who have been left out of developmental process," he stated.

He urged, "You can make a difference in the lives of our people through your work. The country expects you to make the second big transition from being merely 'administrators' to 'transformational managerial leaders'."
