Early Times Report

Jammu, Mar 18: Even as Prime Minister Narendra Modi continues to be loved by the people across the nation as being the man of integrity and honesty, the government in Jammu and Kashmir has seemingly messed up the idea of "Chowkidars" and "Chores."
While the Peoples Democratic Party alliance with Bhartiya Janta Party had been scanned for numerous alleged scams and some of the ministers were even sacked following such complaints, not much seems to have changed in action against the alleged corruption and nepotism in the administration.
From giving awards to tainted officers to grant of crucial postings to "sufarshi", the Raj Bhawan continues to face similar criticism as was faced by previous elected government.
On the Republic Day two of the medicos from Kashmir, who were given the state award, had been under scanner.
One of them was accused in the previous PDP regime of getting his wife absorbed in a job at SKIMS Bemina though unfair means.
The other doctor, who was awarded, was the one, under scanner for allegedly maladministration at the Government Medical College Srinagar run hospitals where medicos were accused of medical negligence leading to death of patients.
Officials said at the Entrepreneurship Development Institute Pampore, after removal of one allegedly tainted official on alleged charges of corruption, the job has been given a junior level officer of the cadre of manager.
"Instead of handing over the charge to some officer of credibility, the charge has been given to the one who had been favorite with the previous NC and PDP regimes that were known for corruption," said a senior official at the Civil Secretariat here on the condition of anonymity.
Sources said in one more case the Raj Bhawan's administration has given the charge of a central Kashmir district to a government servant who is allegedly only class 10th pass by qualification. "Matric pass was given the charge because he was close to a political party," said a senior official.
"While many of the deserving officials including those with IAS and IPS have been sidelined, the sensitive postings have been given to juniors who are favorites," said the officials.
Official sources said a medico who was previously close to PDP and was accused of large scale corruption has been given a key posting in the Health and Medical Education Department.
A senior official in the Public Works Department said national highway along Srinagar was macadamized a few months ago during the Governor's rule and that the same has broken apart. "Macadamisation was supposed to last for three -five years but it didn't last even for three months because no one cares about accountability," said one engineer in the Roads and Buildings Department.
Some senior officials said not much has changed. "One one hand there's a nationwide support for #MeinBhiChowkidar but on the contrary in Jammu and Kashmir there's no real Chowkidar. Raj Bhawan's silence has messed up Chowkidars and Chores!," said a lobby of IAS officials on the condition of anonymity.
Despite repeated attempts the concerned couldn't be contacted for comments.
