LGs and AIS officers to be finalised for UTs of Ladakh and J&K by Oct 31

The Centre is getting ready to deal with intricate administrative matters in J&K with its newly attained status of Union territory after the abrogation of Article 370 and 35 A from the state. The government plans to appoint LGs in J&K and Ladakh on October 31 that is birthday of first home minister Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, who was instrumental in bringing these states to India. The government will enact other administrative changes in these UTs.

 

The primary concern of the government has been to provide good governance and for that the government is working on the names of All India Service officers to be deployed there. With J&K turning into a UT administration including the police will be with the Centre. So it is being said that names of the IAS officers to be posted in J&K have been decided by Nripendra Mishra while call on IPS officers will be taken by Ajit Dobhal obviously with the consultation of Union Home minister Amit Shah.

 

Administrative control in J&K will help establish peace in the state which as per government claims is peaceful after the special status was repealed from there. Taking administration into its hands has been key to turn J&K into UTs. The government is also working to de-radicalize the region.

Modi’s mission and Shah’s action earn brand equity

After the abrogation of Article 370 & 35A, J&K is returning to normalcy. Connectivity is retrieved and restrictions are lifted. The Govt has claimed that not a single casualty has taken place over a period of 30 days.

 

The flawless execution of ‘Mission Kashmir’ has apparently become the brand equity of Union Home Minister Amit Shah -- the most trusted lieutenant of the PM Modi. The government sorted out several tough tasks be it demonetisation, triple talaq, surgical strike and smashing the special status of Kashmir.

 

Amid oppositions from within and outside, Modi-Shah has not only nullified its attack but alienated Pakistan with its exhaustive home work before executing its plan. They did not allow the matter to get leaked to anyone at the home front.

 

There has been a general practice that all party meeting is convened before taking such big decisions but whenever the matter is discussed at all party meeting it is mostly recommended to Parliamentary Standing Committee and always remains in Limbo forever of which women reservation bill is a testimony.

 

The government played emotional card, divided opposition on the issue of Nationalism, put security arrangements well in place, Valley was cleansed from terrorists. But the government appeared resolute even if it had to evacuate Amarnath pilgrims and tourists in Kashmir facing their ire.

 

It is not that things remained hunky dory for the duo. The issue of demonetisation is still debatable, GDP has gone down to 5 per cent, cleanliness mission of Ganga proved to be a damp squib, unemployment still haunts the country but Modi-Shah duo take everything to a logical conclusion come what may.


The government neither succumbed to the pressure of political parties nor civil society on any of the issues as mentioned above. Moreover, they are rather preparing road map for J&K to ensure smooth elections in the state. BJP’s organizational structure is working day in and day out to ensure a win. De-radicalisation is another plan on which the government is very serious about in its K plan.

J&K: Former judges and civil servants also want a piece of political pie

By IndianMandarins 14 Jan 2019

Former IAS officer Shah Faisal, who cast aspersion on his previous employer to get into the right side of state politics, might face a lot of competition as the J&K's political space may get increasingly crowded.

 

Hard on the heels of Faisal's resignation, Syed Towqeer, Principal and Sessions Judge, Anantnag requested the Registrar General of the Jammu & Kashmir High Court seeking voluntary retirement.

 

Although Towqeer reportedly cited personal reasons, it is speculated that he may probably contest the assembly elections from South Kashmir’s Kokernag assembly seat and will be joining the National Conference in coming days.

 

Another senior judge who hails from north Kashmir and is currently living in Srinagar is also planning to enter politics and may probably contest from Baramulla constituency on a National Conference ticket.

 

Last month, former SSP Srinagar Riyaz Bedar who hails from north Kashmir’s Pattan settled in Srinagar joined the National Conference. He may contest the elections from Pattan against former minister and senior Peoples Conference leader Imran Reza Ansari.


There have also been speculations of another bureaucrat Asghar Ali seeking retirement to join politics.

 

Raja Ajaz Ali former Inspector General of Police (Crime), who joined the PDP ahead of the 2014 elections and contested assembly polls from Uri, recently resigned from the party and joined the Peoples Conference of Sajjad Lone. He is likely to contest from Uri assembly constituency.
