Maximum governance happens when people ask the right questions: FM Sitharaman
Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said on Saturday that maximum governance is achieved only when people ask the right questions and government can weed out “dead wood and undergrowth”.
She was speaking during the Ministry of Finance’s “Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav Iconic Week”, celebrated from June 6 to 12. The Minister launched a series of innovative communication and outreach products aimed at spreading financial and tax literacy and explained the contributions of the various departments to the development of the country during the event.
Speaking on the occasion, Sitharaman said, “Maximum governance is achieved only when people ask the right questions and we are able to remove the dead undergrowth and turn it into a shining Amrit Kal” .
Referring to the iconic week, she said “the Department of Finance had reservations about the effectiveness of a campaign because the type of work we do involves activities that, when we speak, people don’t don’t tend to like it.”
She said the ministry organizes many activities in a clear manner.
“Once we reviewed, we realized that many activities that the public were unaware of were worth looking into and presenting them in a clean way in which people can understand so that people appreciate how the ministry contributes to nation building,” Sitharaman added.
