LEADER OF Opposition in the State Assembly, Jamuna Devi, on Tuesday said that order of the State Government lifting ban on participation of its employees in RSS activities was ‘illegal’ because the Governor was not consulted in the matter, as required under the Rules of Business & MP Civil Service conduct Rules, 1965. 

In a memorandum submitted to Governor Balram Jakhar, Jamuna Devi said that the State Government had encroached upon the Governor's jurisdiction by not issuing the order in his name nor was his approval sought in the matter as required under law.

She further said that MP Civil Service Conduct Rules, 1965, which were amended to permit the State Government employees participate in RSS activities, were framed in the name of Governor and any amendment in the rules should have been brought about following due consultation with the Governor.

Besides, Rules of Business of MP Government also provide that any change in policy matters of the State would be brought about with the approval of Governor only.

Therefore, the order lifting of ban on State Government employees participating in RSS activities was illegal and needed to be quashed, she contended.

However, Secretary, General Administration, D S Rai, who has issued the order on behalf of the State Government, said that Classification, Control and Appeal (CCA) Rules applicable on State Government employees has been modified to permit their participation in RSS activities and the State Government can take such decisions on its own.

He further said that order imposing ban on State Government employees' participation in RSS activities issued in the year 2000 and 2003 had also been issued without Governor's consent.
