Chief Minister Pema Khandu today issued strict instruction to government officials to perform or face stern action leading to their termination from job. The Chief Minister had called a coordination meeting of panchayat leaders and government officials from the district.
He observed that benefits of several welfare schemes were not percolating to ground due to bureaucratic issues. He asked the government officials to do their work sincerely as their performance directly reflects on the conduct of the elected officials.
The Chief Minister said since he became the CM, the state government has done whatever the government employees had demanded for — from implementing the 7th pay commission to enhancing the retirement age to 60.
He also said the state government had agreed on several benefits for government employees including they benefiting from receiving highest salary in the Northeast.
The Chief Minister said he expects output from the government employees on a scale, to the benefits they receive.
“I work for 15-20 hours in a day and expect our government employees to work at least 8-9 hours for welfare of the people,” said the Chief Minister.
During the meeting, the Chief Minister discussed on several issues of the district such as land compensation, drinking water, health, sanitation, and on performance of the officials.
He asked the head of the department not to leave the district without prior permission or face consequences of their action. On receipt of complaint on one government employee absenting from duty despite several show cause notices, the Chief Minister asked the Deputy Commissioner to issue necessary suspension/termination order.
The meeting was attended by Tawang MLA Tsering Tashi, ZPC Chairperson Jambey Tsering, panchayat leaders, head of the departments including officials from various departments.
