Sachivalaya in Gandhinagar wears a deserted look as babus are missing. And this situation is expected to last till Monday. The reason is Gunotsav, where not just government but forest officials too have been roped in to conduct this state-sponsored programme that will kick-off on Thursday.

Education department officials said that over 3,000 class I and II officials including IAS, IPS and IFS officials have been sent to schools in remote parts of the state to head the Gunotsav exercise. The officials will visit one school in a day and do a thorough assessment of the quality of education imparted and the infrastructure of schools in the state. This exercise will go on for three days.

Meanwhile, officials said this is the first time the forest department officials have been asked to join in the Gunotsav programme. According to the state government directive the deputy conservator of forest and assistant conservator of forest will also join in the programme.

A senior officer said that even those in the Gir sanctuary and other wild life sanctuaries have been asked to report for duty during Gunotsav. For nearly three days from Thursday, the officials have been asked to remain present in the allotted villages.

"Having all forest officers out on duty is risky as the beat guards and junior officers cannot be given the responsibility of sanctuary in absence of any senior. Forest officers involved in field work should be kept out of Gunotsav as they are required forground administration," said a forest officer.
