Itanagar: Arunachal Pradesh Governor Brig (Retd) Dr B D Mishra and Chief Minister Pema Khandu have extended their warm greetings to the people of the state on the special occasion of Good Governance Day, which commemorates the birth anniversary of former Prime Minister, Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
The governor expressed his hope that the celebration of the day would inspire everyone to accept, adopt, and apply the tenants of Good Governance, in letter and spirit, in service of the nation.
In his message, Dr Mishra said that good governance encompasses inclusive growth and development for the welfare and betterment of the life of the people in the country. The processes and functioning of the government machinery, therefore, have to be made fully transparent and responsive. “State governments must involve the citizens and make them active participant in the governance,” he said.
The governor said that for good governance there are two universally accepted Mantras first, last man in the last rung of the society should benefit from the initiatives of the government and second, implementation of every scheme and project should be carried out with utmost honesty, indisputable integrity, complete accountability, proper audit, review and mid course correction.
“Every responsible person in authority should, therefore, imbibe these mantras for people friendly governance,” he emphasized.
Meanwhile, Khandu also wished everyone on the occasion of the day which commemorates the birth anniversary of former Vajpayee.
