Kathmandu, July 18
Pampha Bhusal of the ruling Nepal Communist party (NCP) in the parliamentary State Affairs and Good Governance Committee today accused the Federal Public Service Commission of not following the new constitution while issuing advertisement to hire 9,161 employees at 515 local bodies.
“It is not the fault of the Ministry of Federal Affairs and General Administration as its responsibility is to forward the required number employees to the FPSC. The FPSC had to ensure that the standards of social inclusion were met during employees recruitment process,” she said. Referring to the Chief Commissioner Umesh Mainali and other four commissioners of the FPSC, Bhusal said that people with regressive mindset were reluctant to act to fulfil the expectations of people brought about by political revolution in the country.
Another NCP Lawmaker Janardan Sharma said it was wrong not to hold training programmes for civil servants immediately after the promulgation of the new constitution. “There should have been training programmes for all government employees including secretaries. Due to lack of trainings the employees are not familiar with the spirit of the new constitution,” he said. “If we raise our voice for social inclusion, it appears that we are against the FPSC.”
