YAA censures State government’s lackadaisical transfer & posting policy

Dimapur, April 11 (MExN): The Yimchungrü Akherü Arihako (YAA) censured the state government over the lack of administrative officers and the “lackadaisical and step motherly treatment” of the state government in the recent transfer and posting of IAS/NCS officers.

In a press release on Sunday, the YAA—the apex student body of the Yimchunger community, stated that no administrative officer has been allotted for Mangko EAC Hq, and the SDO (Civil) Chessore had been “inconspicuously transferred out” within two days of taking charge. The transfer order came out as a surprise as no relieving officer has been sent, it added. 

“It is also learnt that the EAC Shamator who is transferred out, is temporarily taking charge of ADC office and no replacement is given in his place to take charge till date,” the YAA stated while adding that it would not allow the said incumbent officer to transfer out until the state government reinstates another officer in his place.

Whereas the government notification No. PAR – 4/6, 2020, on March 12, directed the officers to take charge before March 19, it pointed out that Shamator subdivision is yet to see its new ADC. “All we can assume is either the government is not serious of the notification or the officers do not care about the notification at all,” the release stated.

Further, the YAA pointed out that the non availability of administrative officers in the sub-division is causing immense hardship for the citizens and appealed the state government to address the grievances at the earliest. “In the event of any undue delay in posting the officers, the state government would be solely responsible for any issues pertaining to law and order situation or otherwise,” it cautioned.

The YAA, in its federal assembly reaffirmed its resolution to check the irregularity of all the government employees serving within its jurisdiction and that ‘No Work, No Pay’ shall be enforced, the release stated. As such, the YAA shall inspect all the government offices/institutions uninformed and ‘appropriate action’ would be initiated against those found absent during the inspection, it added.
