CSWO objects to appointment of Mehta as security observer
From A Correspondent
SHILLONG, March 5: The Civil Society Women Organization (CSWO) today objected to the appointment of retired Meghalaya Director of Police (DGP) Rajiv Mehta as a security adviser by the state government.
According to CSWO president Agnes Kharshiing, the move to appoint Mehta in the capacity of a security adviser after his retirement will be just a waste of public funds to accommodate a few officials who never performed (while in service).
"What security advice can the former DGP provide to the state, when he could not even determine the murder of his own honest official (L) PJ Marbaniang and accepted the findings as suicide," Kharshiing alleged.
The CSWO president said there are a few serving senior officials in the police department who are capable of giving sound security advice.
"The CSWO vehemently oppose such moves by state government to appoint retired officials in any department of the state, as this puts a stop gap, to others who are due for promotions and the many youth who are in need of a job, and this directly also violates their Constitutiol rights," Kharshiing said.
Meanwhile, the CSWO has also demanded that the Government should not dilly dally in appointing a full-fledged DGP in the State of Meghalaya and warned the Government that if they do not take this seriously the CSWO will pursue it as per law required.
