Two months after the Move

The Darbaar Move offices closed in Jammu in the last week of April, and opened in the summer capital on May 7. However, as some reports suggest, ten weeks after opening up of the offices, various departments have not opened the boxes and untied their bags. The files, therefore, have not reached the concerned tables and people who visit the civil secretariat are told to wait till the files are untied. The rusty boxes are seen scattered on the floor of the secretariat which gives it a shabby look. Besides there is possibility of theft of important and confidential files as nobody is guarding the these boxes. The government is laying emphasis on attendance of the government employees. However, this alone cannot set the derailed administration back on track. Unless the employees work and address the peoples’ problems, total prudence shall remain a distant dream. The lethargy of the Move employees has always evoked criticism. Some quarters have even sought an end to 150 –year-old practice, which, according to them wastes time, money and labour and serves no purpose other than satisfying the ego of some elements who survive on hollow slogans. The Governor must take note of the serious lapse and ensure that the boxes are not kept there in the corridors of the civil secretariat only to be transported to Jammu in October. Hapless of hapless persons visit the summer capital every day from far flung areas of the state only to find that their respective files have not been 'retrieved’ from the boxes. They return disappointed after spending a good amount of money to reach Srinagar. The first and foremost duty of a public servant is to remain available to the people who call on them. They have to bear in mind that they are paid to serve the people. And, if they do not work, they need to be thrown away. Skipping work that an employee is supposed to do amounts to corruption and corruption in all its forms and manifestations has to be eradicated. The authorities must prepare a list of employees who do not work and declare them dead wood. The sooner this happens, the better.

    Inadequate Nursing Care

    One of the main causes for lack of proper healthcare has been the virtually perennial shortage of trained nursing staff in different hospitals and health centres.
