Prestone says removal of Lokayukta officials as per norm

Shillong, Jan 17: Deputy Chief Minister in-charge Home Prestone Tynsong has asked the Voice of the People Party (VPP) to read the Meghalaya Lokayukta Act before demanding reinstatement of the officials, who were recently removed by the Lokayukta.

“Let them (VPP) read out the Lokayukta Act. Read out properly then only you come up with your complaint,” Tynsong told reporters.


He was responding to a question on the VPP’s decision to serve a 24 hour ultimatum to the government to reinstate the removed officials of the Lokayukta.

He said the state government had already clarified on the matter. “Without reading the Act I think it is not fair and the rules also already indicated that the officials of the Lokayukta should be a working officer,” Tynsong said.

“You can say anything but I am telling you from the government side before doing anything we have thought it properly hundred times be it the political appointment, be it terminating the contractual staff in any offices we have done it with due diligence. Therefore, they (VPP) can say whatever but we also have our own procedures and own rules, we have to follow that accordingly,” he added
