Saryu Roy Writes To Assembly Speaker For Contempt Of House Proceedings Against Banna

Jamshedpur 30th Nov 2021: Jamshedpur East MLA Saryu Roy has requested Jharkhand Assembly Speaker Rabindra Nath Mahto to initiate contempt proceedings against State Health Minister Banna Gupta.

In a memorandum sent to the Speaker, Saryu Roy has alleged that in the written reply to his question in the last monsoon session of the House, the Health Minister informed the House that the Civil Surgeon in charge of East Singhbhum has been found guilty. The process of departmental inquiry and dismissal from service is going on.

But he is being protected from the ministerial level, and obstacles are being put in the way of his dismissal.

Despite clear assurances in the assembly, the minister did not send his dismissal motion to the cabinet in the form of a resolution but generally sent the file to the chief minister, while the chief minister does not have the authority to dismiss a gazetted officer. This power is with the cabinet.

The MLA has alleged that the file sent by the minister to the Chief Minister went to the Chief Secretary under process, he raised this question and sought the views of the Personnel Department.

Later, the Personnel Department decided that the power to dismiss the convicted officer rests with the Council of Ministers, and the file was sent to the Health Department for sending the proposal for dismissal.

Apart from this, Saryu Roy has also added that the Health Department is hiding facts from the Assembly. Legal action is being withheld to punish the concerned file from the ministerial level.

However, he alleged that the file is still in the health department. It is contempt of assembly.
