Gwalior (New World Rep.). After an inquiry into the outsourcing scam in the municipal corporation, the authorities withdrew the order to parade the employees. Orders were issued to parade these employees at the corporation headquarters at 10 am on Saturday, but the decision was abruptly canceled on Friday evening. Corporation officials argue that instead of crowdsourcing employees, they will now prepare a department-wise list of outsourced employees in the corporation’s departments. After that, department wise parade is held on different days.
Municipal Corporation Additional Commissioner Mukul Gupta wrote a letter to all departmental and zonal officials on Friday and directed the outsourcing employees except the workers engaged in cleaning work in departments and zonal offices to be present at the corporation headquarters on Saturday morning. However, this letter was also neglected. The order issued mentions the rank of Commissioner, but the signature is that of the Additional Commissioner. He said that the additional prefix will be added to the post of commissioner and the commissioner will give orders. With the arrival of the letter, there was a commotion in all departments. As a result, the authorities withdrew these orders. Additional Commissioner Mukul Gupta said department-wise employee information was not available with the General Administration Department. For this reason this information is being prepared department wise. After that, the employees performing duties in each department are called and paraded. Late into the night, employees in the general administration department were seen preparing this information.
– Not all employees-
The municipal corporation officials hastily issued orders for the parade of all the employees, but in reality many of these employees were working in the personal service of the officers posted in the city. Also, many employees are only on paper and do not work in offices. In this case, even if the parade takes place, not all the employees will attend. Along with this, after the order for the parade, political and administrative pressures also started on the officials. The order was temporarily suspended.
-Count 61, Name 58-
He said that 61 employees were replaced by the Raj Security Agency without demand after the inquiry into the outsourcing scam. They were supposed to be handed back to the Raj Security Agency, but when this list of employees was released, it contained the names of only 58 employees. These include 40 skilled employees posted in PHE, 13 employees working in workshops and regional offices and general administration department employees. Most of these employees are relatives of politicians and municipal officials.
Are these the big questions?
-Scope of inquiry reduced to 7th April 2022 only. On what basis the cut off is taken till April only?
– The inquiry report mentions the return of services of only 61 employees. Who employed them and on what basis?
– Is there any conclusion about suspended Assistant Engineers Vishnupal and Vishal Jathav?
-Vishnupal note sheet for recovery of 31 employees, but why no action taken?
