TANGLA: The United People's Party Liberal (UPPL) has criticized the Bodoland People's Front (BPF) for appointing 14 junior assistants and 6 LDAs in the Food, Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs Department of BTC, Kokrajhar on March 7 by allegedly violating all standing norms.
RTI activist and central working committee (CWC) member of the UPPL, Saimol Dwimari alleged that despite having the Central Selection Board (CSB) in BTC to conduct examination or interviews to select candidates in various government departments, no such procedures were followed while making the appointments in the department.
Addressing a press conference at Tangla town in Udalguri district on Monday, he claimed that the appointments were totally illegal and unacceptable and such appointments had amounted to 'grave injustice' to the meritorious candidates. He also demanded a thorough investigation into the alleged corruption and job scam in the council.
The appointment order signed by the Council Head of the Department of Food, Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs Department of BTC, Kokrajhar, dated March 7 reads, "In pursuance to the approval of BTC and in the interest of public service, the following persons are hereby engaged for the post in fixed pay at Rs.9000 on purely temporary basis and may be terminated at any time without assigning any reason and notice thereof."
