G A Mir urges Govt to end disparity between KAS, KPS cadres

Srinagar, May 8: Urging State Government to put an end to disparity between KPS & KAS Officers in respect of promotional benefits, the J&K Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) President G.A. Mir today expressed surprise over the step motherly attitude of the Government towards the KPS Officers while showering promotional benefits to the civil officers of KAS recruited through the same competitive examination.
In a statement, G.A. Mir said Government should address the genuine demand of fixing of seniority of young police officers (KPS) paving the way for their promotions they deserve.
He emphasized the Government to take all care of the promotional benefits of KPS officers also, as that, they have been recruited through same examination, but they were being denied their promotion benefits, many KPS Officers, as reported to him(G.A. Mir) have decided to opt for other jobs in the backdrop of injustice meted out to them.
He said the KPS Officers should get the promotional benefits without any disparity, for the fact, they have been recruited through same examination as KAS Officers.
My argument is that while showering promotional benefits to KAS Officers, Government must provide the same benefits to KPS Officers to end the disparity, as that will one deliver justice to these (KPS) Officers, G.A. Mir added and urged upon the Government to treat both (KAS, KPS) cadres equally while promoting them to higher posts. (KNS)
