Re­spect RCSC de­ci­sion but not agree to it

Bhutan Times - - Home - Biku Gu­rung

The dis­cus­sion be­tween the gov­ern­ment and Royal Civil Ser­vice Com­mis­sion (RCSC) is not set­tled yet. The RCSC had raised the de­ci­sion on the three sec­re­taries last time; the ques­tion was raised to the sev­eral min­is­ters at meet the press last Fri­day.

Prime Min­is­ter Tsh­er­ing Tob­gay said there is no harm to give any kind of de­ci­sions by any author­ity but should have firm backup rea­sons. He said the sys­tem may not agree their de­ci­sion though re­spect RCSC’s de­ci­sion.

The Home Min­is­ter, Dam­cho Dorji said, the RCSC has gone into de­tails of the case, has also come up with the log­i­cal con­clu­sion and have done ev­ery pos­si­ble thing as per the rules and reg­u­la­tions of the RCSC’s Act. The gov­ern­ment how­ever, has no reser­va­tions against the de­ci­sion and are happy with it, he added.

The min­istry says that the state­ments pro­duced by the op­po­si­tion party are base­less with­out any­thing spe­cific rea­sons re­lated.

The Prime Min­is­ter said that the op­po­si­tion party is at­tack­ing RCSC so through it protest the gov­ern­ment as a whole. The sys­tem has not taken any de­ci­sion on re­in­stat­ing the three sec­re­taries so far.

Home Min­is­ter said that the re­sponse of the op­po­si­tion party to the de­ci­sion of the RCSC, “We are quite amazed that the op­po­si­tion party seems to have very lit­tle re­spect for the de­ci­sion of the RCSC”.

The op­po­si­tion party has also is­sued press re­lease for re­stat­ing the three sec­re­taries back to their des­ig­na­tion and the cabi­net and the eco­nomic af­fair min­is­ter to be accountable for the is­sue.

The Home Min­is­ter said the other thing that he is not sat­is­fied is that the op­po­si­tion party has not been fair enough with the RCSC’s de­ci­sion. If they wanted to bring out this is­sue then they would have di­rectly dealt with the gov­ern­ment as it is a democ­racy in­stead of go­ing to the me­dia.

He fur­ther added said, they have no firm rea­son to point out the gov­ern­ment. The state­ment from the op­po­si­tions was just not mean­ing­ful, they would have dis­cussed for­mally.

Ly­onch­hen added that the op­po­si­tion party is­sued this base­less state­ment so that the peo­ple would not trust the gov­ern­ment. It only shows peo­ple that the present gov­ern­ment is not do­ing any­thing and point­ing out base­less rea­sons they have made. It is only pol­i­tics, he added.

Ly­onpo Dam­cho Dorji said that they are try­ing to drag this is­sue to the Na­tional Coun­cil. The Prime Min­ster said this mat­ter would be dis­cussed in the Na­tional As­sem­bly.
