Madhusudan Burlakoti, Secretary of the Public Procurement Monitoring Office, on Tuesday satirized his tough status on Facebook – ‘If the country is to be developed, the secretaries of the Nepalese government should be kept on hourly contracts.’ He has also mentioned that he was surprised to see the erudition of the secretaries.
Kathmandu. As most of the secretaries of the government are still in the role of intermediaries, anger has started to arise from the general employees towards the secretaries who are in key administrative roles.
When most of the secretaries are controlled by the minister and his associates and they become the middleman, the entire administration sector has lost its credibility. In the civil sector, there are about 70 special category secretary level employees in various ministries and agencies. Most of them have been accused of being middlemen. It is said that some of the secretaries are honest and they are forced to remain under duress. An honest secretary does not have access to high political leadership. That’s why it is said that they had to fall apart. They are free from the charges of middlemen.
Government employees from office assistants to deputy secretaries are repeatedly questioning the role of most of the secretaries and joint secretaries of the government. A few secretaries have said that they are shocked when they see the working style of other secretaries.
With the confirmation that the then Home Secretary Teknarayan Pandey was acting as a mediator of the then minister Balkrishna Khan in the case of fake Bhutanese refugees, the question has started to arise that most of the secretaries of the government may be playing the same role even now. According to the police, evidence has been found that Secretary Pandey himself made deals worth crores of rupees to the minister.
A secretary of the government expressed anger on other secretaries of the government on Tuesday and suggested that the secretaries should be kept on hourly contracts. He sarcastically said that he was fed up with the secretary’s erudition. Madhusudan Burlakoti, Secretary of the Public Procurement Monitoring Office, on Tuesday satirized his tough status on Facebook – ‘If the country is to be developed, the secretaries of the Nepalese government should be kept on hourly contracts.’ He has also mentioned that he was surprised to see the erudition of the secretaries.
‘Secretaries do not work, they blame the law unnecessarily’ Secretary Burlakoti said to the Nepal newspaper targeting other secretaries – ‘Secretaries do not have the habit of working according to the law. is.’
According to the sources, the secretaries are known to be the ‘S-man’ of the minister, especially to go to the attractive ministry. Ministry of Home, Finance, Physical Infrastructure and Transport, Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation and Ministry of Urban Development are known as more attractive ministries.
According to the employees of the government, the high-ranking officials such as the secretary and joint secretary are neglecting the work of the people and doing the work according to their own interests. Similarly, it is said that the secretaries who came as the Esman of a minister also do things that suit the interest of the minister. ‘Secretaries are not very excited to act in the interest of the people and the country.’
According to the deputy secretaries and branch officers who worked with the secretaries. A Deputy Secretary of the Office of the Prime Minister and Council of Ministers said that since the secretaries have reached the role of intermediaries, it has created serious questions about the entire administration. ‘When the secretaries themselves acted as middlemen and mafia, it became difficult for us to walk with our heads held high.’ The Deputy Secretary of the Prime Minister’s Office said.
According to the sources, even now, in many ministries, there is wrongdoing in the setting between ministers, secretaries and directors general of various departments. Sources claim that because the Chief Secretary, who is in charge of monitoring other ministries and agencies, is not able to organize the monitoring system, the middleman system is prevailing in other ministries and departments. Institutions such as Commission for Investigation of Abuse of Authority, National Vigilance Center and others have not been able to investigate and investigate the setting up of such ministries and departments.
The government has not been able to apply scientific standards even in the transfer of secretaries, joint secretaries and other employees. Sources claim that when transfers become opaque and financial manipulations occur in transfers, it also distorts the administration.
