Jammu and Kashmir news
With Mufti directing strict overhauling of various departments and now sacking of 63 civil servants in the course of administration, Jammu and Kashmir has been delivered the good governance that even AAP couldn’t deliver in Delhi. Many parties have come and gone with the promise of providing a corruption free government but PDP and BJP union, despite their ideological differences has been delivering at least the promise of good governance, which in every aspect is the most vital change that the J&K is in dire need of. From the administration department to education, Mufti is leaving footprints of his stern no-nonsense approach towards governance.
In his maiden action to remove the deadwood from the state administration, Mufti Mohammad Sayeed showed door to five administrative service officers, three medicos and two chief engineers among the 63 officials who were sacked. Naaem Akhtar ordered premature retirement of 63 officials including five KAS officers and two chief engineers on recommendations made by the high level committee headed by Chief Secretary Muhammad Iqbal Khanday. In one of its kind move, the minister said, 25 of 63 were caught red handed while accepting bribe and disproportionate asset cases were established against 11. The rest of the sacked officials have delivered bad performance.
This action, as the Minister says, is a warning shot to all the tainted and corrupt officials so that they mend their ways soon enough. The message conveyed by the Ministry is coherent- the good performers are in safe hands and the rest can have the exit door opened for them.
