Challenge is how do we connect the last public official with the vision of New India

Governance delivery is both TopDown and BottomUp.

There is a visible disconnect between the Top, through the middle and then the bottom. Delivery is hampered by several layers. Whereas the implementation is by the middle and the bottom levels. New India needs newer strategies to narrow this gap. There are no mandated strategies to do so. It has been by and large person driven at various levels so far. Which is why few stand out others remain invisible or remain average, or do not feel accountable or stake holders. For a New India we need a nationally implementable plan to coopt all the 3 Crore+ Govt employees. Some States, Some officers, some places, some units doing it will be like ponds or small islands but not make the Indian Ocean, of responsive delivery.

Hence we need to think this through and find a way how do we engage the last public official on our pay roll who says, 'I am an important part of the architecture of New India. I am its builder and a resident'
