Kathmandu, June 11
The official trade union of government employees has expressed objections to a directive made by the State Affairs and Good Governance Committee of Parliament to the Public Service Commission for cancelling a call for applications for around 10,000 vacant positions at the local level.
The union’s chairperson Punya Prasad Dhakal says the directive has challenged the credibility of the constitutional body.
Likewise, the incident has also suggested that forces working against the government are trying to trap it from all directions according to him.
As the directive was issued when the Prime Minister was out of the country and the ruling party lawmakers were also divided over the issue, it has raised eyebrows of many stakeholders, according to him.
“If this directive is implemented, the country’s bureaucratic administration will turn amiss,” Dhakal said.
Owing to a protest from Madhesh-centric political parties who claimed that the directive did not ensure reservations for Madheshis and other communities, the House panel had issued the directive yesterday.
