Mission Statehood president Sunil Dimple while briefing the media stated that bureaucracy of J&K is unwilling to see Assembly Elections happening in the newly formed Union Territory of J&K despite the fact that Prime Minister Sh. Narendra Modi has made it clear on 15th of August, 2021 from Ramparts of Red Fort that efforts are on to hold elections in J&K. It is in place to mention here that General Administration Department has issued two orders so far transferring near about 28 employees from the Assembly Secretariat to Central Registry Units and Service Selection Board without seeking approval from the Hon’ble Lieutenant Governor as the powers of Speaker of Legislative Assembly are presently lying with Hon’ble Lieutenant Governor in absence of Speaker and as per the reorganization act, 2019.
Sunil Dimple further said that when i sought information regarding these transfers from the Secretary General J&K Legislative Assembly and administrative Secretary Law, Justice & Parliamentary Affairs both of them expressed their displeasure over the fact that these transfers of employees of J&K Legislative Assembly are happening through General Administration Department without their knowledge. Sunil Dimple further reiterated that these Transfers vindicate that Assembly Elections are not going to happen in J&K in near future besides, it seems that present bureaucratic setup is not willing to see an elected government in J&K.
