JAMMU:  Securing jobs and qualifying entrance examinations for professional courses in the state of Jammu and Kashmir seems more serious and gigantic than what it comes to the public domain in recent past. There are more than hundred such cases where the beneficiaries have managed to intrude into lucrative government jobs through fraudulent tactics.

Though the present Governor S.P Malik has adopted a tough line and vouch to book all such fraudsters under criminal code with severe punishment but the task is herculean as these criminals are spread in length and breadth of the several state government departments.

As per the documents available with the mandate, out of several such scam one of the candidates who presently working as Assistant Engineer in Mechanical Department has managed to qualify the entrance examination of Govt polytechnic, Bikram Chowk through proxy candidate who happens to be his elder brother. As per the Crime Branch officer in such cases the beneficiary as well as the proxy candidate is equal culprits and both are liable to be prosecuted under various provisions of law for hatching criminal conspiracy through ‘common intention’.

Jammu: Securing berth in professional colleges through fraudulent means by proxy candidates seems a deep rooted nexus in the state.

Recently, a case of similar nature has come to fore nearly 28 years after it took place.

In this case, a renowned international skater managed to secure berth in Government Polytechnic, Bikram Chowk, Jammu for three years diploma course through fraud.

As per available documents, in 1990 the then Competent Authority (now BOPPEE) held entrance examination for selection of candidates for three diploma course. In this exam, the said international skater managed to qualify the examination through proxy candidate which happened to be his elder brother.

Advisor Vyas to interact with public at Jammu on Friday

Suresh Magotra

JAMMU, JULY 25: Finally, the Chief Advisor to Governor, B B Vyas will have audience with ‘Children’s of Lesser Gods’ and is scheduled to interact with public and address their grievances here in the winter capital on Friday, July 27, 2018.

The Advisor will be ‘available’ for interaction with the public from 10 am to 3 PM at Convention Centre, canal road.

The individuals, deputations, delegations and civil society organisations who want to meet the Advisor for projecting their demands and grievances can register with the Deputy Commissioner Office Jammu on all working days before the scheduled day of the public meeting.

It seems that after the imposition of Governors Rule under His Highness the Home Ministry has directed him only to look after Valley, as if Jammu does not matter, where Advisor Khurshid is supposed to hold public durbars in civil secretariat Srinagar in addition to keeping tab on former CM,s Grievance Cell but unfortunately no such system was put in place in Jammu.

It is a known fact that ‘Left Oriented’ Governor Vohra holds a malice against Jammu region since 2008, but then what is Government of India doing, where it is a known fact in ‘Power Parlays’ that Vohra is in Cahoots with Muftis, why no checks have been put on his activities.

After assuming administrative powers, Vohra has been howling towards the Security forces to observe ‘SOP’, furthering PDP’s agenda of Surrender Policy.

Interestingly, most of the local militants killed recently are youngster who had joined ‘The Ranks’ recently. Such is the imposed fragrance of NN, that it seems that the ‘Surrender Policy’ of PDP seems to be working, where any such individual who Surrenders will have a secure livelihood.

No doubt, both the regions need different balm, where Valley has her own inherent problems, Jammu needs entirely a different approach.

The biggest issues facing Jammu is Traffic Jams, which means that alternate mass transport is the need of the hour. Though DPR was prepared by ERA under the expertise of RITES, but like her farther Mufti Mohammad Sayeed under expert guidance of his trusted Lieutenant Nayeem  Akhter said no-no to Tawi Lake project, Mehbooba refused to consider Metro Rail for Jammu city.

The height of nuisance is that with BJP Government in Centre and for the first time BJP romping home with 25 seats from the region, Governor Vohra is turning Nelsons Eye towards the stronghold of BJP on concentrating only on Valley, which is not likely to deliver any political dividend for years to come.
