Sharma alleges favouritism in creation of posts of ADCs

JAMMU, FEB 17: Former MLC, Ravinder Sharma has blamed the State government of adopting totally arbitrary attitude and pure favouritism on political considerations in the creation of the posts of ADCs in different areas, ignoring areas which were more deserving on all parameters and merit, which has resulted into unrest amongst people.
In a statement, Sharma lashed out at the PDP-BJP government for adopting an arbitrary approach in total disregard to merit or criteria and without adopting any fair or transparent procedure or mechanism for the creation of administrative units, which has caused large scale resentment and unrest in different parts like Nowshera and Sunderbani, while ADC has been setup at Koteranka, besides in Billawar and Basohli etc, which are represented by Ministers in the government.
Sharma said that the previous governments, in order to extend such administrative facilities, had always adopted some mechanism like setting up of Billoria Committee, Ganai Committee and thereafter the proposals were considered and examined by the cabinet sub-committee but now only pick and choose policy for political interest of ruling parties had been the sole criteria.
He said that the people of Nowshera were observing indefinite bandh and people of Sunderbani and several other areas in Rajouri and Poonch had also resorted to protests over selective approach of the coalition government.
