Sacked staffs besiege Sylhet City Corporation

Activities at the Sylhet City Corporation (SCC) office remained suspended yesterday as its 431 staff sacked by a government order on Sunday were barred from performing their duties.
The sacked SCC employees besieged the SCC mayor and other officials for hours demanding punishment of those who arranged jobs for them taking bribe during the rule of BNP-led coalition.
Later, acting mayor Azam Khan held an emergency meeting with SCC officials and ward commissioners.
They formed a three-member committee that will meet the LGRD adviser today. Besides, they decided to run emergency services including supply of water and electricity with the existing staff until regular employees are appointed.
The LGRD ministry cancelled the appointment of 431 SCC staff on the grounds that they were appointed “illegally” following an investigation conducted by the Sylhet divisional commissioner.
Policemen have been deployed at the SCC to avert any untoward incident.
