It’s show time :-)

Oh the ball seems to be rolling at quiet a good pace now. After the regular gyan ke batein the new Sarkar has finally taken the plunge to some serious E-Governance initiatives. It is believed that keeping up with his pledge to push the state into the computer age and introduce what is being dubbed as ‘e-governance’, the Nitish government placed the order for one hundred Dell laptops from Malaysia at the cost of Rs. 75,000-80,000 each to be given to officials at commissioner and secretary level.

The computers with Microsoft Windows XP as its operating system was ordered by the state Science and Technology department at the behest of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar who is resolute on the use of computers in managing Bihar affairs efficiently and effectively while also promising to hold daily video-conferencing with district party leaders.

In the first phase, all the top bureaucrats at commissioner and secretary level will receive the computers. Later, the scheme would be expanded down to other officials of various departments, sources said.Works are already in progress to turn the Chief Minister’s bungalow, his office, chief secretary’s office and his conference hall into a high-tech command center from where Nitish Kumar would monitor developments of the entire state while hoping to maintain complete transparency at all government departments.

The state government, under the e-governance scheme, is also planning to create a number of web sites that would contain latest information on all developmental issues, NRI-related facilities and news, among other things.

Now that’s what I call a real good show, I’ve always been little skeptical of the so called sarkari moves which our Neta G’s are good at making but Nitish seems to be determined to change the things at every level in the govt.So finally it appears we are going to see our Neta’s walking around in Dell laptop’s .
