Interregnum slows down administration

CUDDALORE: 

          The month-long interregnum between the polling to the Assembly elections held on April 13, and, the results to be announced on May 13, has certainly slowed down the administrative machinery in the State, if not having brought it to a total standstill.

           Ever since the poll notification is issued, the weekly Grievance Day sessions have been suspended and also the 100-day work to be provided under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme has been kept on hold. The District Collectors, who have been wielding all authority as District Electoral Officers till the completion of the elections, have been made to cool their heels till the outcome of the elections are known.

           State president of the Tamil Nadu Government Officials' Union R. Shanmugarajan told The Hindu that as far as administration was concerned such a nebulous situation was quite unprecedented and unheard of ever since Independence. He further said that it had complicated matters for the government officials and employees. For instance, the transfers and promotions that were due in March/April were kept in a limbo as the files were pending with the Election Commission or the Chief Electoral Officer.

           Mr. Shanmugarajan said that the Election Commission had deputed the polling officials a day prior to the polling stations with a condition that they should not stay in any of the houses in the area as it might create an impression that they were acting in a biased manner. Therefore, women polling officials were put to great hardships. He also noted that allowing the Ministers to convene the review meetings without the participation of District Collectors (as the District Electoral Officers they should not participate) would be without substance. Moreover, no initiative could be taken to desilt the canals, lakes and tanks before the onset of the southwest monsoon.

            Former State president and advisor to the TNGOU G. Suriyamoorthy said that during the period no policy decisions could be taken. However, he underscored the point that though there could not be any total breakdown of the administrative machinery the long established system might even go on stumblingly. But both of them applauded Mr. Praveen Kumar for having conducted polls peacefully.
