SHILLONG, Jan 29 - Three women workers and a private secretary, appointed personally by former Governor V Shanmuganathan in Meghalaya, were today sacked after their services were found to be in variance with norms, Raj Bhavan officials said here.
The four � a cook from Chennai, a private secretary from Lucknow, his personal assistant from Assam and local public relation officer � were sacked, Raj Bhavan Secretary H Shangpliang said.
He said the contractual services of these people appointed by Shanmuganathan are co-terminus with the term of the Governor.
Shanmuganathan was forced to resign on January 26 after a section of Raj Bhavan staff shot a complaint to Prime Minister complaining about the former�s role in compromising with the dignity of the highest office in the State by turning it into a �young ladies� club�.
During his tenure from May last year, Shanmuganathan had appointed three women and a person from Lucknow, as recommended by his close political aide, a Raj Bhavan employee said on condition of anonymity.
The employee alleged that interviews for these job seekers were also conducted by the Governor himself and at odd hours. � PTI
