Rupandehi, February 17:

Minister for Local Development Rajendra Pandey today said that the process of providing permanent appointment to over 18,000 temporary and contract staffers working under the ministry has started.

Speaking on the occasion of the 48th anniversary of the Butwal municipality in Butwal, Pandey said, “The CIAA has directed the ministry not to keep over 18,000 staffers working on temporary basis, wage system or contract basis.”

“Staffers struggle to get facilities. They, however, have to abandon the tendency of not performing their duties,” Pandey said.

He called on the people to caste votes in the CA elections.
