Jammu, July 3 : What is the best way to enter the government service in J&K at the class 4th level? No marks for guessing the right answer. Yes, backdoor is the best way to enter any state government department and if you know a minister or his head of the department well, rest assured you have got yourself a job.
While thousands of unemployed poor youth are battling it hard filling forms at the various districts for class 4th recruitments in different government departments, the luckier ones are silently entering into these departments without even facing an interview or a process of selection.
Early Times has learnt through highly dependable sources that many ministers, belonging both to the National Conference and the Congress, have finally managed to create ways and means for their favourites to enter the government departments under their control.
The standard practice of these ministers is to get their favourites engaged as the so-called casual labourers in departments under their control. Such favourites are also engaged in various projects being undertaken by the state government departments which are either locally or centrally funded. Once the favourites have entered the department as casual labourers or under other nomenclatures which have been cleverly and conveniently devised and designed by the ministers in connivance with their heads of departments, such 'employed persons' are continued for years without any break in their services.
Reasonable estimates suggest that during the last nearly three years, various ministers have managed the engagement of around 15,000 such favourites in various departments under their control.
Ironically, the chief minister, Omar Abdullah has not ordered a single such 'order of engagement' in departments those are directly controlled by him. It is generally believed that the chief minister does not even know about such clandestine engagements in various government departments by ministers of the coalition government headed by him.
The common impression is that nobody, however, mighty or powerful, can get anybody a permanent government job unless such a person is selected through the defined recruitment procedure of the state government or else is the beneficiary of an SRO that governs the providing of government jobs to the next of kin of those killed during militancy.
It is highly disturbing for thousands of unemployed, educated youth of the state that while they are eagerly and patiently waiting for their interviews and other defined transparent processes of selection to start so that they could earn a two square meal, floodgates have been opened by many ministers and their obliging heads of departments for backdoor recruitment of favourites.
Although such appointments are made purely on the basis of temporary engagements, yet legal experts suggest there is no scope for such engagements to be arbitrarily discontinued and once made, there are legal and technical implications to the disengagement of persons once engaged by the state government.
The chief minister has always maintained he would act without any fear or favour against those indulging in backdoor appointments in any government department.
To test his own commitment, Omar Abdullah should begin asking for lists of persons engaged in various departments of the government either on temporary, work charge or casual basis during the last two and a half years. The chief minister should order the heads of departments to submit such lists to the CM's office within a reasonable period of time and also indicate against each such engagement the reasons for the selective engagements.
