Govt resorting to favouritism in filling vacancies: Sagar

Excelsior Correspondent
SRINAGAR, Dec 31: National Conference today said the State Government was resorting to brazen favouritism in filling various vacancies in the SBI and the J&K Police Board in Srinagar. “This was unacceptable and unfair to those merit holders who were being discriminated against,” said National Conference General Secretary and MLA Khanyar Ali Mohammad Sagar during interaction with various public delegations here.
The NC General Secretary lashed out at the State Government for its brazen act of resorting to political favouritism and said this was tantamount to adding salt to the injuries of unemployed youth who had been left abandoned by the present Government.
Lashing out at the Government for neglecting and persecuting Shehar-e-Khaas, he said the State Government had promised to allocate an amount of Rs 15 lakh per ward for Srinagar for developmental works to be carried out at the constituency level and had later cut this figure down to Rs 7 lakh per ward. “Unfortunately not even a single penny has been allocated or disbursed even from Rs 7 lakh per ward that was then promised. This brazen act of discriminating against Shehar-e-Khaas is unfortunate”, the NC General Secretary added.
