Respect RCSC decision but not agree to it
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.
