------- 6-month 'holiday' ends, babus pull up their socks -------
NC-Cong regime politicized bureaucracy!
3/3/2015 1:04:04 AM
Fazal Khan Early Times Report Srinagar, Mar 2: Officials, including the top bureaucrats, have been "enjoying life" since the day floods hit Jammu and Kashmir in September 2014. JK witnessing the worst floods in the past 50-years sealed the fate of the Omar Abdullah led regime as state government couldn't do much to help the marooned people. Floods proved to be the last nail in the coffin of NC-Congress regime but these proved to be a blessing in disguise for the officials. Soon after flood waters receded assembly polls were announced and Model of Code Conduct was imposed in JK giving a pretext to one and all to "stay away from work." The formation of the new PDP-BJP government has ended a six month long holiday for babus and they have pulled up their socks to get back to work as they know that new Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed is a "tough administrator" and a veteran politician who cannot be taken for a ride like his predecessor Omar Abdullah, who ostensibly lacked acumen...
