Early Times Report

Jammu, Jan 22: Instead of allowing public to freely project their grievances before the visiting Union Ministers, the authority allegedly tried to portray a rosy picture by denying an opportunity to the candidates for the list of SPO for district Kathua, forcibly evicting them from the venue.
Union Minister for Jan Shakti Gajendra Singh Shekhawat was scheduled to address a meeting at Community Hall Hiranagar at 2 PM. More than one dozen candidates from district Kathua, who had qualified the physical test and were selected for the posts of Special Police Officers (SPOs) for the district Kathua in the year 2017 but selection list has not published yet, had already reached the venue to meet the Minister.
The candidates informed that they had reached at around 11:30 AM and continue to wait but at around 3 PM, a police officer in civvies, probably Station House Officer (SHO), probably on the instructions of higher authorities, called all the candidates out of the venue. He was joined by some other police personnel, who directed the candidates to leave the venue as the Minister was not meant to meet them.
The aspirants further claimed that the police official asked them to leave the venue without any further delay otherwise be ready to face the consequences. The candidates further said that one of them remained at the venue site managed to climb the stage apprised the Jal Shakti Minister GS Shekhawat that the police was not allowing his counterparts to meet him.
The Minister immediately enquired the matter from authority, who failed to give any satisfactory reply but the Minister assured that their issue would be addressed soon, the candidates said, adding that it was totally unfortunate that the Union Minister have been visiting the districts to take stock of ground situation but authority was not allowing the ground situation to come before the ministers.
The candidates said that their selection list was not published so far, despite the fact that the lists of all districts have already been published. “We have already staged protest demonstration and even spend one day in police lock up for raising voice against genuine demand of publication of the list. We have also meet the Home Secretary and other politicians but for no avail”, the candidates said.
The candidates alleged that something was totally fishy in the entire selection process, due to which the authority has been hiding its misdeeds.
