SHILLONG, Jan 7: The Meghalaya government has decided to bar government servants who are simultaneously holding post of traditiol heads and members of Non Government Organizations (NGOs).

The decision was taken at the State cabinet meeting held at the State secretariat on Thursday. A legislation is expected to come out but there will be clauses that can exempt individuals on account of traditions, customs and other aspects. Speaking to the media after the cabinet meeting, Chief Minister Mukul Sangma said that the government after dealing with all aspects wanted the government servants to be dedicated to the services that they are into.

“They cannot work for any organization, they should be a dedicated worker of being a government servant”, Sangma said. The cabinet decision assumed significance in view of all the social disorders where some of the traditiol body functiories cum activist were seen in the streets in the past ten years.

Making it clear that those activities of the government servants is against the State government rules, Sangma was avid in reading the service rules that can drag anyone of those violators into proceedings initiated by the government.

The new legislation is expected to come out as a big boost in regulating the traditiol heads cum government servants who are functioning in the illegitimate way.
