Behave or face music: Traffic police brass to Cops managing "lucrative" postings via Mantris

Early Times Report
Jammu, Nov 20: Miffed over the "recommendations" forwarded by Ministers and other political bigwigs to accommodate their blue-eyed at lucrative posts, the senior officers in Traffic wing are learnt to have cautioned the police personnel to mend ways or face the music.
Highly placed sources in police revealed to Early Times that "the Traffic wing of state police department seems to be feeling uneasy since past over a month following the unnecessary recommendations by certain political wigs for adjusting the non-gazetted rank police personnel deputed in traffic wing to the posts of their respective choices".
If the sources in police department are to be believed, "following political interference here in the winter capital by some Jammu based ministers, the routine transfers of Cops especially Constable, Selection Grade Constables and Head Constables has been shelved for the time being. Number of Cops in traffic wing hails from the Assembly segments that are being represented by those Legislators, who are Ministers in the prevailing NC-Congress coalition. The Cops manage to reach to the office of the Ministers from where they ensure their recommendations before the senior police officers for seeking postings at the traffic points of their own choice."
While the Traffic Police brass remained tight-lipped over the issue, sources in police department confirmed that "Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Traffic, Jammu, Shakeel Ahmed Beig summoned the traffic cops including Constables, SgCt, Head Constables and Sector Officers at Traffic Police Lines, Gulshan Grounds, here in the winter capital, on late Monday afternoon and cautioned police personnel to ensure discipline in the force and stop making rounds of political leaders for seeking postings at the points of their choice."
"All of you (Cops) are here to serve the people and not for watching your own comforts. All of you must focus on your duties instead of looking for recommendations. If anyone of you will continue with the past and ill-practice then get ready to face the disciplinary action," the senior police officer is learnt to have conveyed to his subordinate staff in a very plain speak.
"Such a practice must be stopped by the political leaders as it will encourage indiscipline among the belt force. Further, the decision of postings must be left to the concerned senior officer who had to get the work done. Another important factor is that if only a handful of Cops will manage postings of their own choice, then it would discourage the honest and committed police personnel in Traffic wing," shared a Traffic wing police officer posted in Jammu, while speaking to ET on the condition of anonymity.
"Most of Cops in traffic wing have managed their transfers and adjustments in Traffic wing and further in Jammu district through the political heavyweights as they (Cops) belong to their respective Assembly Constituencies and vote in their favour. So in lieu of the votes, they approach the political big wigs to influence the senior officers for their adjustments at lucrative traffic points after every three months," further disclosed sources.
