The Bharatiya Janata Party district committee of Chakma Autonomous District Council (CADC) on June 20 slammed the executive committee of the council over alleged back-dated direct fresh appointments.
In a press release, BJP district committee’s General Secretary Prityrup Chakma said that, on October 24, 2019 the executive committee of CADC came with a notification wherein a Voluntary Retirement Scheme (VRS) was notified which stated that the committee may consider for appointments of an eligible family member of the retiree under the scheme.
“Nipa Kumar Chakma, an unemployed graduate and a resident of Kamalanagar-I, has challenged the illegal selection process for appointment to the vacant post under the Voluntary Retirement Scheme of CADC in the Gauhati High Court on May 29. The Gauhati High Court had stayed the discriminatory selection process for appointment of the vacant post on June 3,” the press release noted.
Prityrup Chakma alleged that the executive committee of CADC has filled up 116 vacant posts by way of making direct fresh appointment of the family members of the retirees who has vacated their post recently in various departments of CADC taking advantage of the illegal VRS scheme. Chakma pointed out that the VRS scheme is nothing but a deliberate attempt to appoint the kith and kin of the executive committee of CADC and termed it duplicity with the Gauhati High Court stay order constituting to a blatant contempt of the court order.
“The illegal appointments were made since Rasik Mohan Chakma assumed the office of the Chief Executive Member of CADC is a dishonour to the office of the governor. Further, the repeated attempt of illegal appointments by the executive committee is a criminal conspiracy to deprive the unemployed deserving youths to avail the opportunity to serve and also at the same time stalled the promotion of several senior employees who were already in service,” the press release noted.
The BJP leader stated that the appointments with back-dated notifications and appointment letters is an eyewash to evade the court stay order and the order issued by the Government of Mizoram dated the May 28 which put on hold all compassionate appointments and direct recruitments in an effort to combat economic fallout of COVID-19.
“The executive committee of CADC turned the constitutionally mandated autonomous institution into a ‘jungle raj system’, misusing its power to transform the CADC into a corruption factory under the leadership of CADC’s CEM Rasik Mohan Chakma,” the BJP’s district committee general secretary stated.
