The social media platforms have made it very easy for common public to get in touch with the government officials and convey their grievances to them and the good part is that the government officials too respond quickly and try to help the public by finding a solution to their problems. In a heartwarming incident, an IPS officer reacted promptly on the complaint of a school student and resolved the issue in a pretty quick manner.
A school student from Bhubaneshwar took to the micro-blogging site Twitter to talk about his problem and he also tagged the IPS officer Arun Bothra. The kid writes that he is a student of MBS Public School and he is not able to reach his school on time because the timings of the buses have changed. He told that the reporting time at his school is 7:30 am but the first bus for that route leaves at 7:40 am from Lingipur because of which he gets late and is facing problem.
Here’s the tweet:
I want to state that I am a student of MBS public school, Bhubaneswar. I use Mo Bus as my daily transportation means to go to school. Nowadays the timing of the buses are changed.

He requested immediate action in this regard to which Arun Bothra acted quickly and changed the timing of bus from 7:40 am to 7:00 am.
Arun Bothra tweeted, “Dear Sai #MoBus moves with love of commuters like you. The timing of your bus will be changed from Monday. The first bus will start at 7 AM. You won’t be late for school. With affection from entire team of @CRUT_BBSR.”

Great response 👍. These type of small steps make great differences in society and general people and this is actually called good Governance when general people get benefitted from public service.

What a great way to start a day!! The system ACTUALLY does something for the people, on the basis of a tweet request, without going thru a 10 year file pushing process… Wah!
Well done, Sir 😊🙏🏼#KuchhBhiHoSaktaHai

This reminds me a real story in Japan that the railways continued to run a train though only passenger in that train was a student. Certainly praise worthy step by team CRUT and their leaders

Extremely good precedence sir. This is what we call addressing the concerns genuinely.
