Udhampur, October 17
A new District Executive Council (DEC) of All Jammu and Kashmir Agriculture Officers Welfare Forum (AJKAOWF) was framed unanimously by the Agriculture officers of Udhampur District in which Rajan Sharma was elected as District President. While Ravinder Koul was elected as General Secretary, Balkrishan Mahajan as Treasurer, Rajesh Gupta as Convenor and Dr. Vinay Jandial as Publicity Secretary.
Speaking on the occasion including, Rajan vehemently supported the untiring efforts of Ghulam Nabi Hanjura, Minister for Agriculture and Mohammad Ashraf Bukhari, Commissioner/Secretary Agriculture, who have taken unto themselves to streamline the department by systematically settling the cadre seniority under rules, in a transparent manner.
The quorum criticized the forces bent to sabotage the process of streamlining the department. Already three decades have been lost in streamlining the vexed seniority issues and officers are retiring on the same post on which they entered the department. The ineligible officers are ruling the roost at pivotal positions and holding multiple charges denying the interim relief to many senior deserving eligible officers, in queue.
Forum urged the administrative department to implement One Officer-One Post arrangement on the line of Kashmir Division and dispense with multiple- chargism affecting efficiency and work culture. One Officer–one Post can accommodate good number of senior most officers and raise their morale and at the same time give them an honorable exit on superannuation.
