Now former SMC Commissioner lobbies for Resident Commissioner's post
IAS, KAS lobbies peeved

Early Times Report
Jammu, Jan 12: Unwilling to work at government hospital as a middle-rung doctor as per his actual cadre, a former Commissioner of the Srinagar Municipal Corporation, who was given the charge of SMC in brazen violation of norms, is now lobbying to grab the post of the Junior Resident Commissioner in Mumbai.
Officials said the influential doctor, who has been unwilling to work at hospital in Baramulla district, where he was posted after his unceremonious ouster from the SMC, is camping in Jammu and lobbying in the corridors of power.
"From doing the rounds of Ministers and senior leaders from the ruling parties to making visits to New Delhi, he(medico) has been frequenting the Civil Secretariat to get the chair of Junior Resident Commissioner for Mumbai- a post higher than his cadre," said a senior official in the Civil Secretariat on the condition of anonymity.
Officials said at least one minister, each from Bharatiya Janta Party and the Peoples Democratic Party have started fresh lobbying in favour of influential medico. "Basically he had been serving personal interests of some high profile politicians and thus they want to benefit him come what may as his posting in Mumbai will meet their interests more," the officials alleged.
Sources said a senior official at the civil secretariat recently got annoyed and told this doctor as to why the latter wasn't ready to work in his actual cadre. The reply was shocking. "I have been working like a bureaucrat so how can I work like a 'routine doctor'," the former SMC Commissioner allegedly replied.
Senior officials said they were under pressure to issue orders of his elevation as the Dy Resident Commissioner. "Till now we have been resisting the move pleading that such illegal elevation will again draw criticism from the IAS and KAS lobby," said an official privy to the development.
He, however, said it would be difficult to bear with the pressures as the two ministers who are supporting him happen to be the most powerful faces in the government.
Sources said the IAS and KAS lobby has conveyed it to the Chief Secretary BB Vyas that any such "illegal elevation" would be resisted through formal protests. "Enough is enough. This time we won't refrain from going for protest demonstrations if some junior employee illegally grabs our share and those deserving are left to rot in cells," said a senior official associated with association of KAS officers.
