Spandana grievances
Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy asked the Collectors to own the programme and re-examine the mechanism set up for the initiative. He said to ensure a quality mechanism in resolving the grievances and told to receive applications in each Secretariat from 3pm to 5pm every day, in addition to the weekly programme. When a second application is filed on the same issue, verification should not be done by a superior officer and should definitely consider that application.
