HC dismisses petition
APPOINTMENT OF DHS
D A RASHID
Srinagar, Nov 16: The High Court Friday dismissed the petition challenging the appointment of present director health services Kashmir, Dr Saleem-ur-Rehman.
Justice Mansoor Ahmad Mir while announcing the judgement which court had reserved earlier held: “The petitioner has not been found eligible for being appointed as A Grade Specialist even in 2012 after government accorded sanction to of 28 B Grade Specialists as Incharge A Grade Specialists and his claim for being considered as director is consequenty rendered ingenuine.”
“Dr Muhammad Ashraf Bhat has failed to carve out a case for admission,” the court added. Dr M Ashraf Bhat had submitted that having been appointed as Assistant Surgeon in the year 1990 and as B-Grade Specialist in Surgery in the year 1997, he was eligible to be appointed as A-Grade Specialist in the year 2002 after putting in five years service as B-Grade Specialist.
“But he was not appointed as A-Grade Specialist despite his representations,” the court held.
“Counting his imaginary experience as an A-Grade Specialist since 2002, he proceeds to claim to be eligible for appointment as Director, Health Services, Kashmir,” the court said.
The petitioner had challenged two orders whereby Dr Saleem-ur-Rehman was appointed first as Deputy Director, Health Services and, thereafter, given the charge of Director, Health Services, Kashmir.
The petitioner had also sought direction to the respondents to promote him as A-Grade Specialist with effect from 2002 to select him as Director, Health Services and Director, Family Welfare.
The petitioner had questioned the Government order dated 5 August 2010, whereby Dr Saleem-ur-Rehman in compliance to Court direction was promoted as Deputy Director.
