OKHALDHUNGA: Minister of General Administration Lal Babu Pandit on Tuesday warned of action against civil servants who fail to deliver their service to the public.

Speaking at an interaction organised by the High Level Administration Reform Implementation and Monitoring Committee in Okhaldhunga, Pandit asked civil servants to be committed to delivering service to people in the district where they have been deployed. He directed government employees not to engage in politics.

On the issue that people working in non-governmental organisations were earning double the amount that civil servants were drawing, Pandit advised civil servants to quit their job if they felt their remuneration was low. Pandit argued that no increment in salary could gratify employees as they were used to taking bribe from service seekers.

“If the old guards quit, young people will get the opportunity,” Pandit said, adding, “If you wish, continue with your work, otherwise, others will replace you.”

He said the government had given VDC secretaries full authority to work in the villages despite some difficulties in the wake of the April 25 earthquake. He also informed that CDOs were given the prerogative to mobilise staffers from any government office to quake-hit areas to render service in an effective manner.

He pledged to send some fund to the District Disaster Rescue Committee to procure necessary materials.
