In a significant move under ‘Vyavstha Parivartan’, the state government has decided to halt the practice of honouring dignitaries by presenting shawls, caps, and bouquets during official events.
Chief Minister Thakur Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu announced this decision, attributing it to the ongoing natural calamity concerns.
As per these directives, no formal honoring or felicitation ceremonies will take place in government functions until the 31st of October, 2023.
Earlier, the state government has also suspended the customary guard of honor traditionally accorded to VVIPs during field visits until 15 September this year.
These measures collectively reflect the state’s commitment to enacting meaningful change and fostering a pragmatic approach towards governance.
“The state government’s decision not only aligns with the need to channel resources and attention towards managing natural calamities but also underscores a departure from symbolic formalities to more substantive actions in the realm of governance,” said the Chief Minister.
