Thiruvananthapuram: Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan criticised the government employees at the local governing office for ill-treating the public. While inaugurating the state conference of the Kerala Municipal and Corporation Staff Union, CM said that the employees must remember that they are public servants and should not take actions that harm the interest of the public.

People are not seeking any favour from the officials. Instead, they are arriving at the government offices to obtain their rights, reminded the CM.

Many people are denied justice even after visiting the government offices several times. Those officials who trouble the public will be brought before the law without fail, CM added.

“Corruption has been reported comparatively low in Kerala. However, our aim is to wipe out corruption completely from the state”, said Pinarayi Vijayan.

The state government has taken a stance to assure 5 different jobs to1000 persons within the limits of a local governing body. This has to be implemented properly. If anyone approaches the office for starting an enterprise with job-generating potential, the officers should not treat him or her as an enemy," the CM urged.
