'Sufarshi have a field day as deserving IAS, KAS officers being sidelined'

2/20/2019 11:13:20 PM
Early Times Report Jammu, Feb 20: With the recent reshuffle in the civil administration, the transfer of a undergraduate official as District Commissioner in central Kashmir, has become a topic of discussion among the bureaucrats who said that while "highly educated IAS and KAS officers are being ignored, a "matric pass" has been made the DC. Official records that were seen by the Early Times bureau here showed that the said officer was "undergraduate" and the same has been confirmed by the government itself. Sources said the official who had been a favorite with the National Conference and Peoples Democratic Party regimes has been given a plum posting due to some "Sufarish" from the political quarters who had allegedly requested their aides in Raj Bhawan to give a "very good posting to their favorite man." Sources said the development has become a controversy even at the Civil Secretariat here as the official machinery has taken a serious note of the same. Sources said even at t...

Early Times Report Jammu, Feb 20: Strange things are happening in the terrorist and separatist-infested Kashmir as far as the so-called mainstream parties, including National Conference, People's Democratic Party and People's Conference are concerned.

They are also telling it that though they are different platforms, they can forge an alliance also in case of need to protect what they call "state and the state's special status". At the same time, each one of these parties is leaving no st...
