According to a letter issued to the Establishment Division on his instruction, a status and number will be assigned to the performance of government officials in the Annual Confidential Report (ACR) in accordance with how many public complaints they resolve.

“Resolving the grievances of the people should be the first responsibility of any government official,” the letter read.

It added, “Prompt resolution of grievances and public satisfaction is the best measure of a government official’s performance.”

In his letter, Prime Minister further instructed to work out the modalities, saying the Establishment Division has been directed to evolve a mechanism regarding linking the performance report of government officials with the resolution of public complaints.

The Inspector General is personally monitoring this case following the arrest of the accused persons.

The Prime Minister was informed that all scientific resources are being utilised to collect more evidence in the case.
