Janakpurdham, 1 October :Chief Minister Lal Babu Raut claimed that his government will start recruiting staffers on its own if the Centre does not send civil servants to work in the province.
Chief Minister Raut, who was speaking at a programme in Janakpur, said that lack of cooperation from the central government was hampering development projects. The province needs 992 staggers for its Industry, Forests and Tourism ministries. But currently, it has only 13, he added.
“If the federal government does not send us staffers within one month, we will recruit them on our own,” said Raut adding that his government has already prepared bills to recruit temporary staffers. Raut, who was inaugurating Province 2’s Water Resources and Irrigation Division Office in Janakpur said, “This office should have been inaugurated six months ago. But it was delayed because the central government did not send staffers on time.”
He alleged that the federal government did not send staffers because it wants the provinces to fail.
