SHILLONG: Meghalaya Legislative Assembly Speaker, A T Mondal has claimed that he has minimised appointment of staff in the state Assembly.
Talking to media persons on Thursday, Mondal said that earlier, jobs were given to people due to exigency of work after the heritage building had been gutted in a devastating fire.
“We have appointed them 15-16 years back and how long can we keep them as temporary since they have gained a lot of experience and we also require them,” Mondal said.
Mondal also maintained that internal interviews were conducted for the appointments which were made in the Assembly even as he reiterated that he had minimised appointments and there was no direct appointment.
Replying to queries, Monday affirmed that they needed employees since the Assembly complex was scattered in many places.
Mondal also stressed on the need to have recruitment policy for appointment in the Assembly saying they would follow recruitment as well as reservation policy in future for making appointments with complete transparency
“I am not for more recruitment until the special requirements since we have developed a software system,” he said while informing that the Assembly Secretariat is planning to go online where everything will be available at the click of a button.
The Assembly Secretariat was in the news after an RTI application filed by CSWO president Agnes Kharshiing said Laban MDC Ricky Shullai was allegedly working as peon in the Meghalaya Legislative Assembly even as he had won the by-election to KHADC last December.
