Ashneel Sudhakar to Nasik Swami: “…Probably there is few options — we will let the people who are in there, phase them out, like retire, they will slowly retire out,retire off or we will advertise again for the positions. So if somebody is, for example the deputy secretary of finance, and he’s been there just because of his experience and there is somebody who is a better candidate, they apply and of course, his experience will be counted in there, his qualifications will be counted in there – so not necessarily lose their job, I mean there’s no need to panic that you’ll be losing the job, but maybe a better person can replace you in that position while you are transferred to the other – that’s one option.”

Ashneel Sudhakar:Not possibility. The possibilities are endless — but what could happen is — they’ll all, everyone will be asked to re-apply, right. Like, this is something that is not confirmed yet, it’s still being worked out.”

Fijileaks: Sudhakar, while demanding a retraction from the Fiji Times, had claimed that he had made no comments on the readvertising of any positions currently held by civil servants; yes, he did – he mentions in the interview (quoted above], as an example, the deputy secretary of finance, unless he doesn’t consider his position as a civil service position? And, you have his master Aiyaz Khaiyum telling the media that the Ministry of Civil Service has never planned to re-advertise any existing positions or have civil servants reapply for their jobs. But read Sudhakar [ re Deputy Secretary of Finance]

An analysis of the interview transcript released by the Fiji Times proves ASHNEEL SUDHAKAR, the Government Whip, and chairman of Public Accounts Committee and the Law, Justice and Human Rights CommitteeLIED when he denied making no [any] statements about offers to civil servants of phasing out or retirement, replacement where appointments were without merit or transfer within ministries. The Fiji Times, fearing reprisals from Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum and his side-kick Ashwin Raj, MIDA chairman, plays it safe by declaring:

“The Fiji Times reported, as a certainty, that all civil service positions would be readvertised. We acknowledge that this was to overstate what Mr Sudhakar said. He did not say that this would definitely occur. What he said was: “the possibilities are endless — but what could happen is — they’ll all, everyone will be asked to re-apply, right. Like, this is something that is not confirmed yet, it’s still being worked out. Mr Sudhakar says that he made no statements about offers to civil servants of phasing out or retirement, replacement where appointments were without merit or transfer within ministries. However, he clearly made a number of comments on those issues.”

EXTRACTS from Fiji Times interview with Ashneel Sudhakar:

Nasik Swami: And, you know, when these new procedures and new criterias kick in, are there possibilities of them losing their jobs if theydon’t qualify on merit?

Ashneel Sudhakar:Not possibility. The possibilities are endless — but what could happen is — they’ll all, everyone will be asked to re-apply,right. Like, this is something that is not confirmed yet, it’s still being worked out.”
