No gyan ki baat, only kam ki baat!

By IndianMandarins- 19 May 2020


Additional Chief Secretary, Forest & Environment Rajiv Kumar Gupta (IAS:1986:GJ) is being widely appreciated for his go-getter approach. He was made overall in-charge of Ahmedabad city for CIVID-19 management after the Municipal Commissioner Vijay Nehra, in the first week of May, put himself under isolation apprehending COVID infection. 

A sharp decline in active COVID-19 cases in Gandhinagar city from 4.25% to 1.75% in May first week was an outcome of certain proactive professional measures like roping in private hospitals; augmenting bed capacity for COVID treatment and isolation; announcing a set of “immediate measure” to control viral spread; issuing IDs to enlisted vegetables and fruit vendors etc.

What was noticed more loudly was his strategy of ascertaining more clarity in decisions and set of guidelines. Documents on decisions, guidelines, COVID protocols were released and disseminated in public on a daily basis. Gupta regularly released his videos informing people about revised guidelines, a fresh set of decisions which were widely appreciated so much so that some media-persons based out of Ahmedabad city said that Gupta’s regular release of videos mirrored his administrative skills as he talked business and spoke to the point i.e. “No gyan ki baat only kam ki baat”.
