New Delhi: The duel between the AAP government and the lieutenant governor Anil Baijal  over door-to-door  delivery of public services continued on Thursday with the LG denouncing the “misinformation campaign” on the issue.

The government chose to take the matter to the public with deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia visiting a district magistrate’s office to get feedback from people flocking government offices to get their work done.

 

The LG sought to counter Mr Sisodia drew a parallel between doorstep delivery of pizza and public services by stating that public services, which are being delivered online, may contain “sensitive information” unlike the former.

“Furthermore, unlike e-commerce, which is a B2C transaction, the government has to be sensitive and responsive to safety and security concerns in the proposed system which would be a G2C government-to-consumer) transaction,” the LG House said in a statement.

It added that the fact that people continue to queue up outside departments despite online availability of services — reason why the LG has advised to plug gaps in the online delivery system and increase access by facilitating setting up of internet kiosks by jobless youth.

 

“The proposed system of delivery through several mobile sahayaks, at a facilitation fee’, will introduce unnecessary layers along with all complications, including corruption,” the statement said.

It quoted Mr Baijal as saying a “misinformation campaign” was being spread about issues related to the public delivery of services. He later said contrary to the LG's claims, doorstep delivery will end graft by putting an end to the rounds of people to government offices.
