Srinagar, June 18, CNS: Commissioner Secretary Education these days is not available for the visitors. Visitors visiting the civil secretariat to meet her are not allowed by the peon to enter her cabin.
A delegation from Bandipora told news agency CNS that from past week, all their efforts to meet the Commissioner Secretary Education at Civil Secretariat didn’t materialize as peon on the door has been continuously telling them that the officer is busy in one or the other meeting.
“Employees from Education Department are beset with so many problems and to redress those they though visit the other officials but finally are being asked to visit the office of the Commissioner Secretary Education who unfortunately remains busy in meetings,” they said adding that to avoid any delegation, the word meeting is naïve word which is being used by this officer.
They appealed Governor Satya Pal Malik to impress upon the said officer to address the problems of the people. “This officer is not only avoiding visitors but there is no move of files at all in her office. Scores of files are pending there and no efforts are being made to resolve any issue. This officer is encouraging ‘red-tapism,” they alleged.
The delegation said that scores of educational institutions are headless in Bandipora district but the said officer is disinterested in solving any problem.
Despite repeated attempts, Commissioner Secretary Education Sarita Chouhan didn’t pick up the phone. (CNS)
