Unfurling the national flag at Indira Gandhi Park here, the Governor called upon all government functionaries and employees to work with full commitment.
    
"We have to ensure smooth, prompt, hassle-free delivery of public services. We have to provide corruption-free administration and all those involved in corrupt practices and other unlawful activities must be dealt in with firm hands," he said.
    
"Let us join hands to fight the menace of the hydra-headed monster called 'corruption', otherwise 'good governance' will be a far cry and the common man will continue to suffer," he added.
    
Rajkhowa also laid emphasis on constitution of the state Lokayukta on priority basis. Such an initiative would ensure delivery of speedy justice at a reasonable cost to the poorest of the poor, he said.
    
Step should also be taken with right earnest to complete the process of separating the judiciary from the executive, he added.
