IMPHAL | Dec 6

The All Manipur Accountant cum Data Entry Operator (AMADEO) appealed to the state government to extend their contract.

Speaking to media persons today at Manipur Press Club, Imphal, AMADEO publicity secretary, Ch, Milan said that they were working in contract basis under Rural Development and Panchayati Raj department from the year 2014.

Their contract ended on June 2017, but they have been working in the department till today, he added.

The publicity secretary said he came to hear that the department is going to recruit new accountants and data entry operators instead of extending their contract.

“It is not fair to recruit new staff instead of extending the contract of current employees. And many of us have already exceeded age bar to join the recruitment,” said Milan.

AMADEO warned to take up certain agitations if the government fails to pass their extending order within December 10.
