Dimapur, Oct. 10 (EMN): The All Sumi Students’ Union (SKK) has complained to the authorities against what it stated were ‘irregularities of employees’ in the govt. establishments that had led to alleged practices such as government officers and staffers directing to their private residences the citizens to get work done.
The organisation has demanded that the authorities initiate action within 15 days. The Sumi students issued to the media on Wednesday a copy of a letter that was addressed to the deputy commissioner of Zunheboto.
‘The All Sumi Students’ Union wish to draw your kind attention in regard to the irregularities (sic) of government employees in offices and educational institution that even remains either close/non-functional in some instances within Zunheboto district causing immense hardship and inconvenience to the general public, specially the students communities,’ the press release read.
The organisation wrote that “most of the officers and staff remain idle in their comfort zones” and either direct the public to come to their private residence, or that the public must have to wait for the employees’ arrival to get work done.
Such practices not only create inconvenience but also exact additional burden such as expenditure and time, and “sometimes the unluckiest are even led to meet with accidents causing casualty and in some cases time lapsed.”
The SKK has requested the district administration to take up ‘tangible, corrective steps’ to ensure all the officers regularly attend to their duties diligently.
‘SKK therefore, request you to initiate necessary action within 15 (fifteen) days. In case of such detection after expiry of dateline, we will be compelled to initiate our own course of action. Your prompt action is anticipated,’ the union added.
