“Guardians of Governance (GOGs) are playing proactive role in ensuring effective implementation of administrative reforms and various development and welfare schemes of the government with zeal and dedication.

The positive results of launching the unique and innovative scheme are quite visible on the ground level,” said the Senior Adviser to the CM, Punjab, Lt General TS Shergill while adding that keeping in view the success of the scheme, the state government has decided to extend the GoGs’ existing strength of 2,900 to 6,000 by end of the year.

It would also achieve the target of bringing all the villages under the umbrella of the scheme to ensure transparent, hassle-free delivery mechanism of different public utility schemes at the cutting edge level.

Lt Gen T S Shergill, who was chairing the meeting of SBS Nagar GoGs at Rattewal (SBS Nagar), on Wednesday said as per filing reports on various issues by GoGs were concerned, Tarn Taran district was going on top where maximum percentage of issues highlighted by the GoGs, had been addressed while in rest of the state the address rate is eighty percent. He asked DC Amit Kumar and SDM Aditya Uppal to act swiftly on thereports as soon as they get them from GoGs.

Speaking on the success rate of the GoG’s working, Gen Shergill said the motive behind bringing out the scheme had been much attained. After the issues by the GoGs were highlighted, the district administration and the state government are getting a huge success to sort out them out within a stipulated time while earlier it was not easy to deal with these type of issues due to the want of a proper channel, he added.

Urging the sarpanches and other public representatives of the villages to cooperate with the GoGs positively to redress their problems, he said the concept of GoG was devised for the betterment of society and to plug the loopholes in the use of development grants and effective implementation of welfare schemes.

Deputy Commissioner Amit Kumar asked the GoGs to work as eyes and ears of the administration.
