AACS-AS memo to Governor

ITANAGAR, May 30: In a two-point memorandum to the State Governor, the Arunachal Anti Corruption Sena-Anna Samarthak (AACS-AS) on Wednesday demanded for appointing “a competent and well qualified person” to the post of CMD, HPDCAPL (Hydro Power Development Corporation of Arunachal Pradesh Ltd), while contending that the post is currently held by a “politically appointed person without fulfilling any laid down criteria unlike other department(s)”.

Earlier, the Chairman and Managing Director’s posts were manned by two separate individuals – while Chairman’s post was politically appointed one, Managing Director was recruited through promotion/deputation basis as per experience and qualification of the bonafide candidate, said the memo, adding, but of late, both posts have been amalgamated into one post as Chairman-cum-Managing Director (CMD). It demanded, a competent and qualified person should be appointed as CMD – a post which is equivalent to the post of Commissioner/Chief Engineer.

The Sena also demanded for early approval of gazette notification of recruitment rules for CMD.
