SRINAGAR — People’s Democratic Party (PDP) President Mehbooba Mufti on Friday charged Jammu and Kashmir government with shielding the corrupt top-ranking officers and taking action against only low-rank officials.
She said that no action has been taken against senior bureaucrats involved in corruption while as low rank officers are fired without any investigation.
Her remarks came after the J&K government ordered premature retirement of 36 police personnel for their alleged involvement in corruption, lack of performance and anti-social activities.
In a tweet, former chief minister said, Odd that LG admin hasn’t taken action against senior bureaucrats involved in cash for govt jobs scams – FAA, JKSI, etc. Post 2019 a new ecosystem of officers have emerged who are amassing millions without any accountability while low rank officers are fired without any investigation.” — (KIMS)
