Shillong, May 12: The Non-Gazetted Employees Association, GHADC, Tura has petitioned Governor Satya Pal Malik against the appointment of an MCS officer to the post of secretary to GHADC as it goes against the council rules.
In the letter addressed to the governor , the NGEA said that the Autonomous District Council (ADC) has separate rules and regulations and the functioning of ADC is completely separate from the state government.
The NGEA said as per ADC rules, the GHADC should appoint its own secretary by following the service rule, or by following the Meghalaya Service Rule, but the government has been continuously appointing/deputing the state bureaucrats to the post of secretary to the Executive Committee of GHADC.
“Such appointment or deputation of MCS officer to the GHADC is totally against the rule of GHADC/ADC, and it further undermines the officials of GHADC and deprives them from the opportunities in holding the post of secretary to GHADC besides promotion,” the NGEA said.
The NGEA sought the intervention of the governor to instruct the state government and the Chief Executive Member of GHADC to make appointment to the post of secretary to the executive committee of GHADC.
