New ideas were envisaged to redress the issues and give relief to the people. That campaign was not a mere 10 days-affair, but the follow-ups on the public problems were being carried out at different level even today, she added.

Implementation of those decisions had already started, she said. Likewise, the government would reach all the divisions and prepare time-bound development plan for all regions.Smt. Raje said that the timing of this visit to Bikaner division was knowingly decided to be during the scorching heat, when temperatures were as high as 45 to 50 degree Celsius. It was for the government to have a real feel of the grievances in this region and offer relief to the public. The government should not run from air-conditioned rooms all the time, but from the ground. That's why this event was scheduled during this extreme weather.
