Uneasy about efficiency

Preparations are in full swing for the first global investors’ meet in Chhattisgarh. To make the event a gala show, the state’s Industry Minister Rajesh Munat has taken command. But he is uneasy for an unusual reason: officials handling the show never seemed to report a single problem. For the last 10 days, the minister has made it a routine to visit the venue of the meet in Naya Raipur – the new state capital – to monitor preparations, sometimes three times a day. Each time, official assure him that everything’s fine. If he points to something he thinks won’t work, he is instantly assured it will be fixed. This “Yes, Minister” attitude and seeming efficiency made Munat so uneasy that he finally felt constrained to actually complain about it at one of the meetings with officials.
