Rajasthan Governor Margaret Alva reiterated that she would not hold 'open durbar' (public hearing), in the Raj Bhawan to hear and address people's grievances.

"There is no such move of holding durbar but, of course I do meet many people from different walks of life, including ministers, former ministers, bureaucrats and other people every week. They tell me their problems and I try to help them," Ms Alva told reporters in a chat here.

In response to a question, the Governor said she would also continue to be among people particularly when they need help.

"I am in the Raj Bhawan for a cause and not to sit idle," she said.

Over the issue of encroachment, she said illegal encroachments should be removed but the affected people should also be also rehabilitated on suitable locations.

She also praised Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and the state government for the action and stand being taken in this regard and said, "The State Government and the Chief Minister also have the same ideology and approach".
