New Delhi, Jul 8: Deputy Chief Minister G Parameshwara on Saturday hinted strengthening of grievances redressal mechanism in the police department for effective disposal of complaints by subordinate staff related to service matters.
He was reacting to a news report about the letter written by a Deputy Superintendent of Police to Director General and Inspector General of
Police Neelmani N Raju seeking appointment to air his grievances regarding the failure of his seniors in addressing his problems.
Speaking to reporters, he said: “The government is receiving several complaints by the subordinate staff that the higher-ups were ignoring their problems related to service matters. The government has decided to improve the existing grievances redressal mechanism.”
“Seniors are required to hold weekly parades on every Fridays and redress grievances of their subordinates. This practice needs to be strengthened. The government will ensure that availing of leaves won’t be a major issue in the department,” Parameshwara, who also holds Home Portfolio, said. Parameshwara, also the outgoing KPCC president, met the Congress president Rahul Gandhi and discussed the political situation in Karnataka. “I thanked Rahul for giving me an opportunity to head the Karnataka unit and serve the party for eight years. He has advised us to extend cooperation for smooth sailing of the coalition government in the state,” Parameshwara said.
“The issue of Cabinet expansion, appointments of heads to boards and corporations and the election of the chairman of the Legislative Council were not discussed,” the DyCM said.
