Itagar, July 30: Chief Minister Pema Khandu has warned government officials to perform or face stern action leading to their termition from job.
Addressing a coordition meeting of government officials and panchayat leaders at Tawang on Saturday, the chief minister observed that benefits of several welfare schemes were not percolating to the ground due to bureaucratic hurdles.
He asked the government officials to do their work sincerely as their performance directly reflects on the conduct of the elected officials, an official report informed here today. Khandu said the government employees have been given whatever they have demanded – from implementing the 7th Pay Commission awards to enhancing the retirement age to 60 – since he became CM.
The state government has also agreed on several benefits for government employees, including receiving highest salary in the Northeast. The output of government employees should thus be commensurate with the benefits they receive, he said.
“I work for 15-20 hours a day and expect our government employees to work at least 8-9 hours for the welfare of the people,” the chief minister said while discussing several issues of the district such as land compensation, drinking water, health and sanitation besides performance of officials.
He asked the heads of each department not to leave the district without prior permission or face the consequences. He also asked the DC to issue suspension or termition order if any government employee remains absent despite several show-cause notices.
The meeting was attended by Tawang MLA Tsering Tashi, ZPC chairperson Jambey Tsering and officials from various departments.
