Kathmandu, 12th February, 2015Â : The Parliamentary Good Governance and Monitoring Committee is in a dilemma about prioritising its work after being over-flooded with complaints.
Majority of the Committee members have emphasized on the need of classifying the complaints and addressing them gradually. However, some members expressed concerned that the Committee would loose its focus and objective if it starts responding to every other complaint it receives. There are various other government bodies that can address these complaints, they said.
Speaking at the meeting of the Committee held at Singh Durbar today, MP Pradip Giri suggested that the Committee should work only on complaints that directly concern good governance. MP Bahadur Singh Lama was of the view that the complaints should be sent for investigation and action to the concerned authorities.
Meanwhile, the meeting also decided to add MPs to the sub-committee constituted to look into complaints and make necessary recommendations on ways to deal with them. The Sub-committee convened by Ekwal Ahmed Shaha is now a 19-member Sub-committee with four members added today.
The complaints received at the Committee range from charges of fake academic certificates of public post holders to government employees arguing that their deputation was against the law.
