A government spokesperson said: “The chief minister has issued show cause notices to as many as 73 officers of the state, seeking clarification from them on charges of dereliction of duty. The notices were issued on the basis of a report for the month of July. He has held multiple meetings with all departments, administration and police, making it clear on all occasions that carelessness will not be tolerated at any level. Public grievances have to be addressed at the earliest and to the satisfaction of all those involved. When, despite so many warnings, complaints were still being received against officials and departments, the chief minister took an even stricter view of the issue.”
