GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, July 7: Industrialists of IE Lassipora have urged the government to instruct all gazetted and KAS officers in J&K to make public their property details, as has been done by the IAS officers.
The industrialists accused the government of showing non-serious approach in eradication of corruption in the state.
At a meeting held under the banner of Association of Industrialists of Industrial Growth Centre Lassipora Pulwama with its president Nazir Ahmad Shikari in chair, the members criticized the government for “refusing to disclose details of properties of KAS officers under RTI Act.”
“The refusal on the part of the government would not only encourage the corrupt, but would also make the honest and upright officers doubtful in public eye,” they said.
The members said the upright officers who don’t have anything to hide from the public can of their own disclose their properties to set a right example in the public affairs.
Shikari said government has been “trumpeting much about eradicating corruption from the state. But here is a litmus test for it.”
“If the government instructs the officers to disclose their properties, it would prove that it really stands for what it speaks,” he said.
He said instructing officers to make properties public is “the best way to bring about probity and transparency in the administration.”
