Jammu, Feb 7: A BJP minister is alleged to have recommended a police officer's name for his posting as SP in his home district.
The SP has earlier also served in the minister's home district. "To justify his recommendation, he has given the reference of another SP who too has been posted in another district for the second time in violation of norms. Other BJP ministers are, however, yet to arrive at a consensus in this regard," police sources said.
In desperation, the minister had also approached a senior BJP minister, requesting him to put in a word for him so that the SP of his choice was posted in his district, s
The BJP minister has allegedly told his colleagues that there is no fun of him becoming a minister if he can't manage the transfer of a district SP.
"The tenure of incumbent district SP has ended. While finding his replacement, he first decided to push forward the name of an SP, but following his punishment transfer some time back, he changed his mind and recommended the name of the other SP who has already served in his home district," sources said.
He is alleged to have activated all his resources to get the officer posted in his district. "Strongly recommending his blue-eyed officer's name for the posting, he has allegedly told other BJP ministers that there is no fun of his becoming a minister if he can't manage the transfer of a district SP," sources alleged.
