“It will take you nothing to do the right thing because the laws are there and the rules are also there for government functionaries to work with.

“As you were sworn in today, I expect you to promote democracy in government,” he said.

The governor also disclosed that he would run an open door policy where everybody has the right to approach government officials for verification.

“This is government of the people, and I will not want any encumbrance of access to the government house,” he said. (NAN)
