Sudhangshu Das makes surprise visit to Fishery office; Expresses dissatisfaction over absenteeism and irregularities


BY TC News Desk

Agartala, August 09: In a surprise move, Fisheries Minister Sudhangshu Das paid an unexpected visit to the Fishery Office in College Tilla, uncovering a disturbing scene of disorder and mismanagement within the department. During the impromptu inspection, the minister encountered a range of irregularities that left him visibly disappointed.

Notably, several rooms stood empty, with abandoned tables and chairs presenting a stark picture of disarray. Despite the clock striking 11 am, office workers were conspicuously absent from their posts. The presence of discarded tea cups and plates added to the sense of chaos. Expressing his dissatisfaction, Minister Das raised his voice, demanding explanations from office officials and urging them to cross-reference attendance records to determine the employees present. His dismay deepened as he discovered a significant number of absentees.

Speaking to the media following the inspection, Minister Das conveyed his purpose for the unannounced visit. He expressed his disappointment with the prevalent culture of tardiness and absenteeism among the office staff. He called on department officials to take decisive action against those neglecting their duties.

The minister also decried the untidy and disorganized state of the office, emphasizing the government’s commitment to appointing employees to serve the public’s best interests. He urged employees to refrain from idle chitchat and political discussions, stressing the importance of their contribution to society.

Despite Minister Das’s concerns, a majority of employees appeared indifferent. Many were found engrossed in discussions within the employees’ organization office, focusing on ways to pressure the government for personal benefits.

Amid these revelations, the pressing issue of skyrocketing fish prices in state markets took precedence. Minister Das expressed disappointment over the department’s lack of focus on this vital matter, as the market continued to grapple with concerns of formalin-contaminated fish affecting public health. As the public seeks resolution and accountability, the Fisheries Minister’s call for reform and a renewed dedication to public service echoes urgently.
