Make Odisha Best In Everything, Naveen Tells OAS Officers

Bhubaneswar: Odisha desires and deserves to be the best in everything and the administration must be active and dynamic in its functions in this context, said Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Friday.

Speaking at the concluding session of the general body meeting of the Odisha Administrative Service (OAS) Association, Naveen said, “My government has been relentlessly pursuing transformational initiatives in the state to stand out as a leader in all paradigms of development in India. The twin initiatives of ‘5T’ and ‘Mo Sarkar’ have helped transform the governance mechanism and thrust attitudinal changes among the government officials towards the common citizens.”

“The hosting of the World Cup Hockey, coming forward to help the nation during the pandemic and many other initiatives have signalled the arrival of a New Odisha, an Odisha that leads the way for making our nation a better place in every parameter of human life and dignity,” he added.

Stating the administration must be active, dynamic and energetic to accept changes, and work accordingly to achieve the dream of a prosperous Odisha, the chief minister said he expected the OAS officers to work dedicatedly in all government endeavours and be the fulcrum of the initiatives.

“The OAS is the nucleus of the state administration. From blocks and tehsils to the highest level of office, they are present everywhere making significant contribution to the execution of policy initiatives of the government. While shouldering the responsibility of citizen centric services effectively at the grassroots level, they have played a pivotal role in efficient implementation of Good Governance and the 5T Initiative of the state at the grassroots level” Naveen said.

He also appreciated the OAS officers’ involvement in the government’s flagship programmes and initiatives like BSKY, 5T School Transformation, FIH Men’s World Cup, Make In Odisha conclave including the critical role during the pandemic.
