Directives to district administration
Shah has issued instructions to all the commissioners, deputy commissioners and other officers of the administration to keep close coordination with the residents of their respective areas. “Our people are simple, poor and innocent; therefore they must be looked after properly, particularly in terms of their security and resolution of their day to day issues,” he said.
“The deputy commissioners must visit their cities, health facilities and schools so that their functioning could be ensured in public interest,” he said. The chief minister also issued similar instructions to the police for monitoring the streets so that the people can carry on with their day-to-day and business activities without any fear.

The chief minister also encouraged local government representatives to direct local bodies to keep their areas neat and clean. “We are giving them ample funds, therefore they have to work,” he said.
