SHILLONG, July 31: The Civil Society Women’s Organization (CSWO) today demanded action against those government employees who were responsible in bringing out an advertisement with regards to the post of Gramsevak and Gramsevika in the East Khasi Hills District in 2010.

According to CSWO president, Agnes Kharshiing the number of vacant posts was not mentioned creating tension among the eight Gram Sevikas who are yet to be appointed.

The aggrieved Gram Sevikas are now on an indefinite hunger strike which has entered its 19th day today.

Kharshiing also expressed disappointment that out of the 12 successful Gram Sevikas only two were appointed whereas in the case of Gram Sevaks all 22 were appointed, in 2012 in East Khasi Hills district.

Further the organization also stressed that temporary appointments into various posts should immediately be stopped.

According to Kharshiing those appointed as temporary employees should instantly be removed and officials appointing temporary staff should be held accountable. She pointed out that many applicants have had to undergo strain in applying for jobs through proper channel and are denied a job because of nepotism and corruption by those in Governce. “This is unbecoming of a State Government that should be looking into the welfare of all equally as enshrined by the Constitution in article 14,” Kharshiing added. Further, the CSWO also demanded that government servants should reply to letters sent by the public in important cases and should not ignore them.
