Shillong, June 11: To thwart employees’ attempts to abstain from duty, the Meghalaya government is adopting a policy of “no work, no pay”.
An order in this regard was issued by chief secretary W.M.S. Pariat today in view of the non-cooperation movement called by the Garo hills-based NGOs in protest against the twin custodial deaths and other related incidents.
An official communiqué issued by the government said: “In view of the non-cooperation on Thursday and Friday, all measures to ensure normality in the districts of Garo hills have been taken.”
“Adverse notice in the form of ‘no work no pay’ will be taken against officers and other employees who absent themselves from duties on the non-cooperation days,” the communiqué said. The statement said government employees were expected to attend their duty punctually so that offices function normally.
The agitation will start from 5am for 12 hours each day to protest against the custodial death of Balsan Marak and Witson Sangma, the killing of Washington Marak and the murder of Jospin.
