Responding to a calling attention motion moved by BJP MLA Khumukcham Joykishan, in today assembly session, Phungzathang Tonsing said that regarding the printing error the State health Mission has issued a corrigendum on February 8.
Moving the calling attention motion Joykishan said that February 21 issue of Imphal Times daily and February 22 issue of Huieyen Lanpao daily had reported about the suspected nepotism to the recruitment of the certain posts as the required qualification mentioned for the post of Psychologists and Clinical Psychologists is not relevent with the post.
Joykishan said that the report appeared in those newspaper shocked him as he had full faith in the state health mission.
After the Health Minister clarified that a corrigendum has alredy been notified, Khumukcham Joykishan again said that he is happy that the department had realised its mistake but expressed surprised on how the corrigendum which was notified on February 8 was published to only one paper on February 22 when the malicious advertisement was published at most of the local papers.
Joykishan further said that the minimum qualification mentioned for the post of RMNCH/FP Counsellors is also mentioned to be either MASCOM or MA, Psychology or MA Sociology. When the later two subjects are relevant for the said post, Joykishan questioned on how a student who passed MASCOM can be recruited to the post could. He drew the attention of the Health Minister to correct for the specific subject if that is also a printing mistake.
