SDF threatens to move court over ‘one family one job’ scheme
Sikkim Democratic Front (SDF) party on Thursday warned that if the Department of Personnel, the government of Sikkim would not withdraw its recent circular on the ‘one family one job’ scheme beneficiaries without one week then the SDF party will go to the court. The party further alleged the political pressure on the concerned department to take out this office order.
It has to be mentioned here that the Department of Personnel issued a circular on May 31 asking the heads of all departments to submit a list of ‘one family, one job’ recruits who reported for duty after enforcement of Model Code of Conduct on March 8.
The circular states that many departments accepted the ‘one family, one job’ candidates during the enforcement of the Model Code of Conduct in the State and stated that allowing candidates to report for duty during the Model Code of Conduct violates the norms of the Election Commission and the concerned department or officer would be liable to be penalized under the established norms of the Election Commission of India.
