Soz welcomes cancellation of appointments made by previous Govt

Srinagar, Jul 9: Former union minister and senior Congress leader Prof Saifuddin Soz on Tuesday said the Governor administration in the Jammu and Kashmir have rightly cancelled the irregular appointments made by previous government on Adhoc basis in Khadi and Village Industries Board (KVIB) in the state.
“I think Government has rightly cancelled the irregular appointments made previously on adhoc basis in the Board”, Soz said in a statement here this afternoon.
He said the government would now be well advised to extend the process of Scrutiny to other areas so that appointments made against norms could be quashed. It would be interesting to investigate and know the irregularities committed by which Department, he said.
Prof Soz said it would also be worth to investigate as to when the then Secretary General Administration Department (GAD), Abdul Majid had raised objections in respect of certain procedures, why certain Departments and Officers deliberately persisted in the wrong direction, he asked.
He demanded that government should appoint a committee to go into the alleged irregularities and punish officers who willfully committed irregularities.
In the meantime, Government should complete the process of regular appointments so that the deserving candidates get jobs, at the earliest, he said.
