    ‘Middle rung bureaucrats not happy with recent GAD order'

    Srinagar, Dec 19 : Several senior officers in the administration have expressed resentment against the recent GAD postings and transfers and termed it as mere “pick and choose policy” to promote junior officers and ignore the meritorious ones.

    Informed sources revealed that the recent government order in which some junior level officers have been promoted and posted at prized places has not gone well within the middle rung bureaucracy.

    “This is sheer injustice. The ruling dispensation is adopting pick and choose policy. How can juniors be elevated and the deserving and meritorious ones are left out.

    Government should not discourage officers by such tactics instead should respect the merit and seniority,” said a senior most KAS officer. For the KAS Cadre which has been already facing stagnation of career while many senior positions are vacant, this transfer session had no merit as many lower rung officers were posted as head of the department and to other senior position while the senior hands were ignored.

    Sources further disclosed that several officers were upset with the recent GAD order in which some junior officers were promoted and posted at top administrative posts, and have gone on the leave. “Yes, several officers have gone on the leave. There is resentment against such favoritism and pick and choose policy,” said another officer.

    Without naming any officer, the sources told that if such practice won't stop, the government will be literally forcing the officers who are running the administration to take some extreme steps for which only he ruling dispensation will be responsible.

    The officers who are angry at such moves have appealed the Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to personally intervene so that time and again such things won't happen.

    “We have no personal grudge with anyone, but government should respect the merit and post and place officers accordingly and not on favouritism,” they added.

    Meanwhile, Secretary GAD, Khurshid Ahmad Shah told a local news agency that no favoritism has taken place in the matter. “It is the decision of the government. Nobody has approached us with any complaints and there is no question of favoritism,” he said.
