State chief minister Dr. Shürhozelie Liezietsu, who reached his secretariat office at 9:30am on Saturday and directed his aides to collect attendance of the officers and staff of all the departments, was reportedly not very pleased with the reports that he received.
A day after he assumed the office, the chief minister had urged the senior officers to strictly maintain working hours and set the offices in order.
According to media cell chief minister’s office (CMO), the chief minister’s insistence on punctuality was set to usher in a new era in governance very soon with timings for the thousands of government employees – at least in the Secretariat – about to be drastically changed.
CMO said the chief minister told his aides that salaries were paid to government employees and they were required to attend to their duties for a specific period of time on all working days. 
The chief minister also reportedly said that if traffic congestion was the reason employees cannot reached their office on time, they should leave home early for their places of work.
Further, the chief minister instructed his officers not to entertain any appointments even for the ministers and legislators with him at his private residential office except under unavoidable situations.
“I have a fully functional office at the Secretariat, and so have they. 
They should attend their offices and if need be, meet me there at the Secretariat. And so should bureaucrats,” the chief minister has this standing order, CMO said.

DIMAPUR, MAR 4 (NPN): State services associations have requested the state cabinet to approve the effective date of the 7th ROP w.e.f. March 1, 2017 (2017-18).
The association have also appealed to the chief minister and his colleagues to convey the government, decision on the implementation of the 7th ROP before the finalization of the 2017-18 budget documents.
According to an official bulletin, the office bearers of state services associations including CANSSEA, NCSA, NSSA, FONSFSA, NPSA, NF&ASA and NASSA met the chief minister on March 4, 2017. After in-depth deliberation, the chief minister, however, told the associations that the effective date and year for implementing the 7th ROP would be decided in the next state cabinet meeting.
With regard to implementation, the associations had submitted representation four times to the state government to implement the 7th ROP w.e.f. January 1, 2016.
