Central and State Governments: Strict Law mandating Ministers/Govt Officials to use only government services (Education/Healthcare/Transportation)

We have many services offered by government including healthcare, education, transportation etc.

Why does always the services offered by the government are substandard in quality?
As the service providers to the public, the government officials and ministers, are they ready to consume what they offer?

When a health minister falls ill, will he go to one of the government hospitals? He/She is responsible for what is available there as a service. Why are we not binding them to what they offer? It should be part of the oath administered when they sworn in as ministers. They always run to private hospitals.

Will the minister for education send his son/daughter to one of the government primary or secondary schools? Why not? Am I missing here something?

My view is, if we make them consume what they produce, probably they might work towards improving the quality of those services. At least the one school where the minister’s son is studying will get the attention. The one hospital local Minister visits will be cleaned properly.

There should be a law which will make it mandatory that Ministers and Government officials should use government services when available. This should be part of the oath or agreement they get in at the time of starting the work. This can even include MPs and MLAs.

      These commandos are elite trained forces and it is a shame to use them as security guards. In fact they are more valuable than the ones they are guarding.

      NSG pulls out 900 commandos from VIP security for anti-terror ops - Hindustan Times

      For the first time in two decades, the elite National Security Guard (NSG) has pulled out its commandos--numbering around 900--from guarding high risk VIPs, scaling down its security duties. The NSG, according to sources, is now guarding the least number of protectees-- 15 VVIPs/VIPs--after a long time following the de-induction of a large number of commandos and redeploying them for operations for which they were meant for.

      No pvt cars for brit Ministers at the Olympics

      British PM David Cameron has risked a fallout with his own MPs after decreeing they must travel to Olympics events by public transport and not in their chauffeur driven cars. Downing Street has banned ministers from using the controversial Games lanes set aside for VIPs to get to the Olympic Stadium.
