Chief Minister Kalikho Pul directed on Wednesday the department of personnel to immediately issue appointment order for the candidates who had qualified the Arunachal Pradesh Public Service Combined Competitive Examination (APPSCCE) this year for the entry grade.
This followed after APPSCCE qualified candidates called on the Chief Minister apprising him on their slow appointment process.
They requested that appointment orders be issued on similar considerations as earlier issued to the qualified candidates of Arunachal Pradesh Police Service (APPS), which was made without police verification as their scheduled training in Shillong was being delayed.
Accordingly, the Chief Minister directed the department of personnel that medical test and police verification could follow while the new recruits resume with their training programme, following their issuance of appointment orders.
Any discrepancies found later in the verification process of the candidate, necessary action could be taken in due course of time, said the CM.
Terming the qualified candidates as the “cream of the state”, the Chief Minister urged them to work dedicatedly for the cause of the state.
“We are select few who are in the position today not to exercise our power but to play the role of a facilitator to deliver service to the people,” said the CM and urged that “it is high time we all work together to change the public perception towards us so that we can win their confidence.”
Advising them to keep service motive, the Chief Minister said as government servants they must be ready to serve in any corner of the state and not only look for lucrative postings.
“The different places you serve, more it will add to your experience,” said the CM and asked them to take cue from IAS and IPS officers who are always willing to serve anywhere and are on work mode even during their transfer period.
He also advised them to share their knowledge and experiences with the younger generation and to motivate them to serve the state.
