He said that the suggestions of various Employees Organizations and other sections of society were being taken into consideration so that viable and comprehensive OPS could be framed.
The Chief Minister said that he has also directed the officers to promote eco-friendly vehicles in a big way which would not only lessen the burden on the State exchequer but also prove a boon to the pristine environment of the State. He said that the State Transport Department would get a fleet of electric vehicles and the Secretariat and other departments would be encouraged to go for electric vehicles.
He said that greater focus would be laid on strengthening the agrarian economy of the State by providing incentives to the farming community.
