Kathmandu, June 19
Chairman of the ruling Nepal Communist Party has said a recent notice published by Public Service Commission calling applications for nearly 10,000 vacant positions at the local level is unlawful and it should be scrapped at the earliest.
Dahal’s statement comes at a time when the Ministry of Federal Affairs and General Administration Lalbabu Pandit, a leader of the party, and the Commission are claiming that the notice is lawful.
Receiving a memorandum from a group of activities at his residence in Lalitpur this morning, Dahal said a directive of State Affairs and Good Governance Committee of Parliament to cancel the notice should be implemented.
“The main spirits of constitution are inclusion and federalism. This notice has ignored these spirits,” Dahal, also a member of the committee, said, “Therefore, it has to be correct.”
After various social groups and political parties protested the notice claiming it did not adhere to the allocation of reservation seats for various groups, the House panel had directed the constitutional body to withdraw the call and let local units recruit their staff on contract.
