24 mARCH, Kathmandu- Minister for General Administration Keshav Kumar Budhathoki has underlined the need of reforming politics and bureaucracy, saying both sectors were mired in inconsistencies.
Addressing a programme of interaction titled ‘Civil Service: Operation, Conduct and Discipline, and Departmental Action’ here today, he said, “It is against the law for the employees unions to participate in the political parties’ programmes carrying the party flag.” The interaction was jointly organised by the Ministry and the Administrative Court. The government secretaries and departmental chiefs participated in the interaction.
The General Administration Minister directed the government employees to deliver services by becoming accountable to the public and extend support to the election-related works.
Chief government secretary Dr Som Lal Subedi directed the department chiefs concerned to take departmental action against the employees who are undisciplined.
Chairman of the Administrative Court Kashi Raj Dahal, presenting a paper, stressed on the need of adopting provisions to put to an end the tradition of making decision without mentioning the basis for the decision, and making those employees and officers failing to fulfill accountability pay the compensation.
Secretary at the Ministry Mohan Krishna Sapkota drew the attention of everyone to be aware to the fact that the transfers, deputations and study leave were not sanctioned as per the law.
