All Manipur Agriculture Department Employee’s Welfare Organisation (AMADEWO) on Wednesday urged the chief minister to revoke the order for appointment of new director of the department and appoint a staff with agricultural background to hold the post.

The employees’ organisation condemns the appointment of an MCS officer as director of the department instead of appointing a staff on grounds of seniority, general secretary of AMADEWO, L Sanatomba told the media.

He was speaking to the media in a press conference held at the conference hall of the state Agriculture department located at Sanjenthong, Imphal East.

Sanatomba said the state government should appoint a staff as the director of the department on grounds of seniority, based on promotion.

In 2018, 2012, 2014 and 2019, the director of the department was appointed from the staff with agricultural backgrounds through the line of promotion. However, the government order issued by deputy secretary (DP) Ph Bhavananda Singh mentioned that former controller of examination, MPSC Kh Lalmani Singh has been appointed as in charge of controller of examination, MPSC and director of state agriculture department in addition, he added.

Sanatomba said the appointed director may have well knowledge and also qualified for being a director of the department but he may not have the technical background of agriculture.

In connection with the issue, the association has submitted a memorandum to the chief minister on Wednesday.
The memorandum mentioned that the order issued for appointment of director of the department should be revoked immediately. Agitations will be launched if the government fails to revoke the order within 48 hours from the date of submission of the memorandum, he said.
