Lucknow, Oct 19 (IANS) With the 2012 state assembly elections looming, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati Wednesday convened a meeting of all district magistrates, district police chiefs and other top officials of the state and asked them to ensure effective administration or face action.

In the day-long meeting, she talked about almost every aspect of governance, but emphasised essentially on the delivery systems, focussing on ensuring proper implementation of the citizens’ charter introduced by her government, an official spokesperson said.

The chief minister said officials responsible for delivering the services within the stipulated time should face monetary punishment in case of default and special care needs to be taken on complaints relating to corruption in various government departments.

Another key concern shown by Mayawati was about the unabated deaths of children on account of the killer Japanese Encephalitis virus that had already taken nearly 450 lives in the affected the eastern parts of the state.

She said district magistrates must ensure not only availability of proper treatment facilities and medicines in all government hospitals but must also personally ensure spraying of disinfectants and improve the overall sanitation.
