Advisors acting as mere ornamental pieces in Govt: Harsh Dev

Early Times Report
Jammu, Dec 6: With bureaucracy having assume-d the centre stage in the state, the Advisors seemed to have lost control over the affairs of administration, said Harsh Dev Singh JKNPP Chairman and Former Minister. With the orders of the Advisors being openly ignored and disregarded by the bureaucrats, it was the latter whose writ was running in the state, said Singh. The bureaucrats had become all powerful taking all Major decisions on policy matters and transfers with the Advisors merely acting as ornamental pieces, said Singh.
He was addressing a press conference in Jammu today. Devoid of Accountability, the bureaucracy was functioning as per its own whims and fancies without having any connect with the public at large and their concerns. The result was the growing discontent and alienation amongst the general masses. "What happened to the tall claims of the Governor's Secretariat that the Advisors would meet and hear the grievances of individual citizens, deputations, delegations and civil society organizations for prompt redressal of all complaints and grievances and to ensure their outcome-oriented resolution? It is a sheer irony that the public grievances projected before JK Governor's Grievance cell in both Jammu and Srinagar hardly yield any result which has led to severe revulsion among the masses", Harsh regretted.
He said that the remote and far flung areas were the worst sufferers of the present rule as neither the Advisors had bothered to visit such difficult areas during the past five months and nor had the public of the said areas any access to these Advisors. Moreover, the two Advisors being non-locals had no connect with the people and as such the alienation had soared in such a scenario with bureaucracy taking the lead and ruling the roost, he added. Mr. Singh regretted that Advisors were dancing to the tunes of powerful bureaucracy.
