Itagar, July 7: The Aruchal Pradesh Congress Committee has accused Chief Minister Pema Khandu of being dictatorial besides interfering in the functioning of his Cabinet colleagues.
“The interference of the chief minister in the functioning of his Cabinet colleagues leading to the cancellation of interview for recruitment of junior engineers in the departments of Urban Development and Rural Works has literally exposed not only his dictatorial attitude but also pinpoints the sheer lack of collective responsibilities of the Cabinet,” Congress spokesperson Hi Camder Tok said in a statement on Friday.
“Without considering the cumbersome exercise undertaken for conduction of interview by the respective departments and the pains and endurance caused to the candidates in preparation of examition, the APCC has termed the exercise of the government as immature,” Tok said.
If the credibility of department to conduct the examition was doubtful, why did the government advertise the vacant posts and dispatch call letters to candidates for appearing the scheduled examition, the party asked.
The APCC has demanded clarification on the cancellation of the interview hastily. “The welfare government needs to know that the thousands of unemployed engineers are crossing the prescribed age limit owing to dilly-dallying tactics adopted by BJP government in pretext of streamlining the appointment system. Any move of the government for the welfare of unemployed youths of the state should be done with a proper policy and planning with a wider consultation but not through an abrupt decision,” the party added.
The party also sought clarification on the merits of prolonging the holding of interviews at this point of time when the state is already reeling under unemployment.
