UP's Revenue Minister gets a first hand experience of a government process
Lucknow: If you are searching for god then visit UP, jokingly used phrase for alleged red tapism prevailing in the state machinery have turned true once again.

And this time the doctor who tasted this bitter medicine was Uttar Pradesh's Revenue Minister Ambika Chaudhary who despite enjoying a powerful position in current government of Samajwadi Party, had to come across this harsh reality and understand the travails a commoner had to wade through to get his work done.

His recent visit to native village revealed to him that his father, who passed away in 1984, is still alive in records and the process related to his will is 'still in process'.

According to reports, the minister recently visited his ancestral village Hasanpura to attend some personal work. Ambika has three brothers in family - Ram Awadh, Ramesh and Dinesh Chaudhary. His father had made a will was was submitted to revenue department and was under process and minister had a feeling that it must have been finalized.

After reaching here, he was surrounded by local villagers who narrated their problems related to different collectorate works. He visited collectorate to check their complaints and meet the officials. After seeing minister inside collectorate, all officials soon surrounded him and minister directed them to look at the villagers' complaints.

However, thing turned bit sour when minister tried to check the changes suggested in his late father's will. To his dismay, he was informed that despite 28 years' time, his father is alive in revenue records and changes are yet to be implemented.

According to reports, minister lost his cool after coming to know about it. An infuriated minister summoned all revenue officials and Lekhpal names while issuing stern directions to look into the matter by concerned officials.

Minister change of mood worked wonder for his village's common man, and revenue officials wasted no time in looking to their complaints.

The incident amply shows that lower government machinery responds to higher ups pressure only as they did during minister's visit. No matter, what will be its impact in its overall smooth functioning, minister must have got a first-hand experience of common man's dilemma and a never-to-forget experience.
