Jammu, Aug 22: Though the Governor office has cancelled all attachments of employees, two influential clerks are reportedly enjoying their attachment at Chief Education Office (CEO) Kathua for the last few years.
Sources informed Early Times that the two clerks-a Senior Assistant and a Head Assistant-have been enjoying attachments in the CEO office.
The Senior Assistant, whose actual place of posting is at Higher Secondary School Kuta, has been enjoying attachment at CEO office. Earlier he was posted at Higher Secondary School Salan but was found always at the CEO office. "After the Governor's order on cancellation of attachment, the Senior Assistant has adopted a new tactic. He used to visit the school in the morning at Hiranagar and after marking his attendance in the school, he left it at around 9 am and reached the CEO office and remained there for the whole day," sources said, adding that the clout of the Senior Assistant could be gauged from the fact that neither the CEO nor the Deputy Commissioner or Director School Education has taken any action against him.
Moreover, it is also beyond comprehension how he is managing the biometric attendance in the school when he is not in the school. The other blue-eyed clerk is Head Assistant, whose actual place of posting at the office of Zonal Education Office Hiranagar. "After he was promoted as Head Assistant, there was no post of Head Assistant in the office CEO, so the then CEO had shifted a post of Head Assistant from Deputy CEO office Billawar to CEO office Kathua for drawl of his salary," said the sources.
Though DSE is the only authority to shift the post, the then CEO Kathua had managed to shift the post, sources said, adding that when the new CEO joined at Kathua, he had written to Director School Education to re-shift the post to Deputy CEO office Billawar, but somehow he managed his stay at CEO office Kathua.
Sources further disclosed that despite Governor's order on detachment of all attached employees, this head Assistant has been enjoying attachment at Kathua office, as DSE has failed to shift the post to its original position.
"These two clerks have become so powerful that even the Governor's order has failed to make any change in their working style and they have been managing all affairs in CEO office Kathua", sources said, adding that Governor office must take cognizance of the matter.
