Mr. Piyush Singla, Secretary JK GAD has recently issued a circular regarding the lodging of complaints against the public servants constituting the backbone of A-Class Governance now in our UT. It is just like other circulars issued by the administration with a few additions here and there.
First of all I fail to understand as to why complaints about sub-judice matters should not be entertained along with anonymous, vague and frivolous complaints. The reply shall never be in the public domain in the light of past practice. “Where the complaints are genuine due action be taken against the concerned as per guidelines issued by CVC/GAD”. How funny/ridiculous? Irony of the matter is that several with genuine contents are gathering dust in ACB and JK Grievance Cell which to the best our knowledge would never see light of the day for obvious reasons. Pardhanashenou ki Pardhadhari ka mamla hei. A complaint via official ACB’s App @ illegal colonies was lodged but the fate of the matter is still unknown.
In the circular it has been declared that those persons who shall be lodging complaints with a malafide intention or an ulterior motive to harass or harm an innocent Govt. Servant necessary action be taken as per law. Section 182 of IPC and section 195 (1) (a) of Code of Criminal Procedure have been quoted.
Furthermore in case a false complainant is a public servant departmental action may be considered. Why may? Why not shall be considered without fail? These are tough questions and the concerned Secretary shall not deem it fit to respond.
For the information of GAD repeatedly the current Commissioner JMC has not been painted in rosy colors but discreet silence prevails. In flagrant violation of own rules and regulations, the JMC has coined a term Vallet Parking to legalize the illegal for obvious reasons-the house of Cuisines located opposite Crime Branch, Panjthirthi is an example. The ACR, JMC is distributing NOC to food outlets, Bars and hotels in sheer violation of laid down norms for keeping intact the business interests of influential. This is happening right under the nose of incumbent JMC Commissioner whose advent have seemingly flamboyant the morale of corrupt Khilafarzi officers and wilful violators which were gasping for oxygen for last 2 years.
There are reports that one RTI Activist and a JMC corporator were instrumental in installation of three shutters at a posh locality after settling hefty deal with Khilafarzi team at the behest of a prominent skin specialist.
Business of sealing and de-sealing of commercial/residential structures like Vermani Parking, Roshan Shah Jewellers 8/6 Channi Himmat, 3 A Pvt Gandhi Nagar, Sharp Eye Sight Clinic, House of Cuisines etc is all together a separate chapter to be highlighted some other day with uncomfortable evidences.
To conclude all was never well, all is not well and all shall never be well.
