Widening rift casts shadow on Bureaucracy

Jammu and Kashmir Apni Party (JKAP) led by Altaf Bukhari has alleged that Kashmiri officers are being sidelined systematically seeking the central government’s intervention on the matter. The party also sought to end ‘groupism’ in the J&K administration between those loyal to Raj Bhavan and others allied with the Chief Secretary’s office.

But the biggest allegation has come as the administration sidelining officers of a particular region on the basis of their region and religion. There appears a wide gulf between the administration and the people.

The party alleged that governance has come to a grinding halt in the UT mainly due to the widening rift in the bureaucracy which seems to be busy in proving loyalties towards their respective centres of influence that the welfare of people. JKAP leader Rafi Ahmad Mir, “Some officers show an inclination towards Raj Bhavan and are unfortunately at loggerheads with their bureaucrat colleagues who toe the line of the highest office in the civil secretariat.”

J&K was witnessing “uncertainty and an unwanted decay in its governance apparatus mainly because of the lobbyism. “The management of the COVID pandemic across Kashmir has been handed over to some officers who are completely inaccessible to people. This is because these officers think they are unaccountable because of their close proximity with the power corridors,” Mir said.
