During two-month long Arunachal Rising campaign across the state, he said he had opportunity to meet people, understand their feelings and expectations. Thus, this is a platform to elaborate on such expectations of the people to the employees, he reasoned.
Pointing out that the employees have desire to perform, he assured right kind of leadership for them to give their best. Comparing the employees with engine of the Govt, he said the Govt machinery will fail if they fail. “I will take all possible measures for employees’ welfare to keep their morale high till I am in chair”, he said. He assured to meet their demands gradually while enlisting GoAP steps, including granting TLA allowance, hiking retirement age & implementing 7th CPC recommendations.
He sought their cooperation in building a better system, but cautioned that future will face the brunt of present inactions, if not corrected today. The people, particularly youths have lots of expectations from the Govt and its employees which should be reciprocated, he said.
