Chief Secretary has forgotten about service conduct rules: JKAP
Remain apolitical, stick to your mandate: G. H Mir
SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir Apni Party (JKAP) senior leader and former minister Ghulam Hassan Mir on Saturday censured the political remarks made by BVR Subrahmanyam, the Chief Secretary of J&K UT.
In a statement issued here, Mir said that the comments passed by the Chief Secretary tantamount to breach of service rules and are legally and ethically unwarranted. “All the government employees including bureaucrats are supposed to remain apolitical and give people a fair deal of governance which is entirely lacking in J&K,” Mir said.
He said that an officer of the rank of chief secretary in J&K seems to have forgotten about service conduct rules which warrant serving officers not to talk about issues pertaining to politics and instead should work for strengthening the institutions of governance on the ground.
