Speaker Hemochandra Irengbam.

IMPHAL, Mar 9: Chief Secretary DS Poonia has been summoned to the office chamber of Speaker of Manipur Legislative Assembly at 10 am on March 10 for an explanation on poor attendance of the Departmental officials in the officer’s gallery while the House session is in progress.

Issuing the summon towards the end of the afternoon session of the Assembly today, Speaker I Hemochandra pointed out that the Department officials ought to be present in full strength at the gallery when the House is in session discussing various important issues of the State.

Although 53 officers attended at the beginning of the session, only 17 of them remained by the end of the session.

This shows that they do not take the House seriously, the Speaker observed, while issuing the summon to the Chief Secretary for reporting to his office chamber at 10 am on March 10.

Hemochandra was elected to the post of Speaker following the demise of former Speaker L Budhichandra who represented Konthoujam Assembly Constituencies, for which by election was recently held.
