Jammu, Aug 29: Some blue-eyed officials of Jammu and Kashmir Board of School Education (JKBOSE) have become so powerful that they have remained untouched by transfers and have been influencing even the decision making powers of Board.
Over 35 employees and officials of JKBOSE have been staying in the Central office for the last over many years ranging from 5-10 years, due to reasons best known to the authorities. Only during the tenure of Dr Deshbandu Gupta as Chairman of Board, some of these officials and employees were transferred but they retained their posts in Central office, once Dr. Deshbandu left the post.
According to the officials, out of these 35 officials and employees some of those who have not been transferred since last more than five years are Naser Ullah Shah, deputy Secretary, Gulam Hassan Wani, Deputy Secretary, Owais Ahmed Head Assistant, Tariq Ahmed Senior Assistant, Shakeel Ahmed Dar SO, Nazir Ahmed Dar SO.
Sources claimed that out of the 35 officials, some of them were transferred in the year 2008-09, when Dr. Deshbandu assumed the office of Chairman but once he left the office, all of them retained their posts.
Sources further said that these officials remained posted in Central Office of JKBOSE and shuttled to Jammu as well as Srinagar with darbar move.
The monopoly of some of the influential officials has become so pervasive that any one official or employee, who they found against their interests, was transferred to some remote Board office and failed to return back to Central office. Sources further claimed that some of the officials have penetrated so much deep into the functioning of the Board that they were aware of everything and they even fixed the Agenda of the meeting of Board of Directors, influence the decision making in administrative affairs and all other works. It is upon the Governor SP Malik and the advisor to Governor, to get the matter investigated and transferred the officials without any further delay, to make the functioning of Board smooth and transparent.
