INSET
Noticing low attendance at the all important event, the Lt. Governor lashed out at the officials of the Field Publicity Unit of DAVP. “What’s the use of organizing such exhibitions when the targeted beneficiaries have not been invited for the event? All government agencies should ensure full public participation in events like these so that the benefits of flagship government schemes reach them,” the Lt. Governor, in his stern message, told the government agencies present at the function.
