Call to act tough on corrupt employees

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Sept 9 � Appealing to the various Government employees� organisations to demand punishment to errant officers and employees who are habituated to shunning work, reporting late to work, remaining absent without any reason, and taking bribe and indulging in all sorts of anomalies in their official discharge of duties, public activist Prof Deven Dutta today said that there had been substantial hikes in the salaries and other allowances of government employees, including schoolteachers, but that has not resulted in any improvement in work culture or in lesser corruption.

�Compared to the common people, those working in Government departments and semi-government establishments are better placed financially but that has not resulted in any perceptible improvement in work culture; rather the media has exposed with alarming regularity various acts of omission and commission on the part of the employees that strongly indicates a decaying work culture and mounting corruption,� Prof Dutta said in a statement.

Prof Dutta said that playing truant and indulging in corrupt practices was a crime and that had been having a debilitating impact on the entire development process. �It is highly imperative that the different employees� organisations which fight for the employees� rights should be equally vocal against corrupt practices that are eating into the vitals of the government machinery,� he added.

Unfortunately, Prof Dutta said, the employees� bodies have been found to be extremely reluctant when it comes to enforcing some semblance of discipline in government offices. �Why do the employees� organisations cannot ensure that the employees reach office before 10 am?� he questioned.

Prof Dutta said that one of the biggest factors behind the crumbling public education system had been the lethargy and indifference of the Government schoolteachers (not all). �Things have come to such a pass that people have been compelled to lock Government schools as no teachers could be found attending the schools,� he said.

Pointing out that the public education system was the edifice on which the future of a nation stands, Prof Dutta said that it was high time the employees� bodies raised their voice against the corrupt and indulgent teachers.
