Govt employees hold offices in political parties
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Apr 28: Though the Jammu and Kashmir Government Employees (Conduct) Rules, 1971 (rule 14) clearly states that no government employee shall take part in politics or subscribe in aid of any political party or organisation, several officials of state government are holding prized positions in political parties.
Here are some examples:
Muhammad Iqbal Jan, a general secretary of State Youth Congress works in Health Department as basic health worker. He is posted in Srinagar and was promoted from class-IV employee to basic health worker in 2007 under government order number: 237/NG of 2007.
“Jan lives under security and has been allotted a room in Hotel Dolphin at Boulevard. He has three PSOs,” sources told Greater Kashmir.
When contacted, Director Health Dr. Muhammad Amin said that he has received a complaint against Jan.
“I wasn’t Director when he was promoted. I’ve ordered an enquiry and within a week time it would be completed,” he said.
Similar is the case of Hilal Ahmad War, a senior driver in Social Welfare department. He is a senior leader of State Youth Congress. “He lives under security and has been allotted a room in Dolphin Hotel on Boulevard,” sources said.
He was appointed in the Social Welfare Department under order number 916/DSW/2004.
The State Congress president, Prof Saif-ud-Din Soz said, “I’ll not accept government employees in Congress. We will take action against them.”
