Civil Servants or Politicians!
Many civil servants, who are serving in different departments and institutions of the State Government are likely to contest ensuing elections, citing unnecessary political interference, amounting to ‘distress’ and ‘humiliation’. They, however, admitted that recent resignation of IAS topper Shah Faisal has encouraged and inspired them to quit civil services and join mainstream politics.
Talking to The Typewriter, a senior civil servant, wishing anonymity said that this was deemed to happen one day, as politicians are humiliating civil servants with impunity causing distress among them and eventually leading to health problems and affecting their efficiency.
“The resignation of Shah Faisal came as a ray of hope for many civil servants, who were unhappy with their jobs due to poor conduct by politicians,” he said and added that Faisal has set another precedence, wherein working civil servants may jump into mainstream politics to serve the society in a better way.
Another IAS officer, requesting not to be named said that there is too much ‘unnecessary’ interference of politicians in the administration, which is denting the very fabric of efficient working.
“The politicians, who hardly know the basics of administration, humiliate a civil servant with impunity without considering the efforts and hard work they had put to reach this coveted post. The indignation among civil servants, especially IAS and KAS officers is brewing and can vent off any time,” said IAS officer, adding that to teach a lesson to the hot-headed politicians, civil servants need to jump into the fray.
After Shah Faesal reports about another senior KAS officer Gazanfar Ali resigning from civil services are rife, wherein it has been assumed that Ali is likely to contest a Parliament elections from the militancy area south Kashmir.
However, earlier, Civil services topper and IAS officer Shah Faesal on Wednesday resigned from civil services giving reason of unabated killings in Kashmir.
