NC calls mass transfers ‘illegal and political’, demand Inquiry by Independent agency

Srinagar: National Conference on Tuesday demanded a high-level inquiry by an independent agency into the slew of mass illegal transfers across various departments in gross violation of established norms and procedures and said these transfers were being affected for political and other considerations.

“The only industry that has flourished in the area – as in the other areas of the State – in the last three years is the transfer industry in which hundreds of transfers have taken place on political and other considerations,” Senior National Conference Leader and Former Finance Minister Abdul Rahim Rather said.

“We demand the constitution of a commission of inquiry to probe hundreds of transfers that have been made illegally in contravention of established norms and procedures for political and other considerations where even class 4 employees and daily wagers have not been spared and are being shifted from one district to another on political basis. This has destabilized the entire administrative system,” he added.
