DC Baramulla's position 'demeaned' as persona non grata runs the show

Early Times Report
SRINAGAR, Apr 21: The position of Deputy Commissioner in North Kashmir's Baramulla district has somewhat been demeaned since the important administrative decisions of the district are taken by an officer who is not even remotely connected with the administrative hierarchy in the district.
Sources told Early Times that the said officer interferes in each and every administrative matter of the district and most of the times bye-passes the concerned district magistrate while issuing the diktats to the officers who are senior to him in every respect.
"This is not for the first time that the concerned officer is poking his nose in the administrative affairs of the department. He has been doing the same for the past more than decade and a half. At times the said officer acts in a manner as if he is the Deputy Commissioner of Baramulla district. The said officer is expected to look after the planning aspect of developmental works of the district, but he has trespassed his authority and continues to do so," said sources.
Sources said that as and when some important meeting takes place at the district headquarters the officer issues directions while as the Deputy Commissioner is reduced to a mere spectator or a mere participant. They said that
I am the boss!
The said officer is posted at Baramulla for the past 16-17 years and his transfer has somewhat been put on hold for the reasons best known to the people who are expected to do the same. During this period at least eight Deputy Commissioners have been changed in north Kashmir.
the other officers get perplexed since they get orders from a person who is not authorized to issue the same.
"The said officer issues directions to the officers who are heads of their respective departments and are senior to him when it comes to administrative hierarchy. He is virtually running the show at the Baramulla district and there is nobody who would ask him about his pro-active role. The officers are playing a second fiddle to the officer although there is resentment among some officers," said sources.
Sources said that the officer is posted at Baramulla for the last 16-17 years and his transfer has somewhat been put on hold for the reasons best known to the people who are expected to do the same. During this period at least eight deputy commissioners have been changed at this North Kashmir.
"At most of the times whenever a meeting is chaired by a minister the said officer comes out with all the information and as such he grabs the attention. In such a way the deputy commissioner loses his importance and his position is somewhat demeaned. The said officer issues explanation to the district officers and at times he goes to the extent of issuing dismissal threats to the officers. One fails to understand why the said officer has not been transferred," said sources.
