KATHMANDU, April 20: Minister for Foreign Affairs Pradeep Kumar Gyawali has urged all civil servants to join the campaign to fully implement federalism and make ‘Prosperous Nepal, Happy Nepali’ a success.
He assured that concerns and problems of government employees would be addressed following approval of the Civil Servants Adjustment Bill that is sub-judice in Parliament. The minister was speaking at a programme on finding ways to address problems stemming from the Civil Servants Adjustment Act and adjustment of civil servants organized on the 29th establishment day of Nepal Civil Service Employee’s Association (NCSEA). “Alongside a change in the governance system of the country, the responsibilities, roles and functioning of parties and organizations have also changed. Civil administration should understand this.
The government is serious about their demands and problems, which will be resolved soon. But immoral behaviors are unacceptable.” Stating that not only administrative leadership but some political leadership are also caught in the mindset of centralization, he said some against federalism were plotting a plan to fail it and increase the distance between the center and province. Likewise, Kedar Prasad Devkota, the NCSEA’s chairperson, accused the government of trying to make a mess in the civil service sector in the name of their adjustment. Instead, civil servants should be operated under a self-mechanism, he added. Also, NCSEA’s vice chairperson Lekhnath Koirala stressed the need for the government to encourage civil servants by addressing their demands.
