Hyderabad: The Bharatiya Janata Party in Andhra Pradesh has accused Andhra Pradesh chief minister Y S Jaganmohan Reddy of stalling postings in the police force on February 29. In a letter addressed to the AP chief minister, the president for BJP said that it is “distressing that such a large number of employees have been kept under compulsory wait in your government without issuing posting orders for no fault of theirs.”
The national party also alleged that several state government employees have not been paid their salaries, and that they cannot be penalised for the “lax and complacent bureaucratic delays taking place for issuing the posting orders.”
The letter listed out that as many as 150 sub-inspectors, 120 inspectors, 80 DSPs, 5 Additional SPs and 5 non-cadre SPs of police department were awaiting posting in the government.
The Andhra Pradesh BJP further alleged that such delays in postings are used as a “tactic for harassing these government employees who are rule-minded and not susceptible to the pressures of the people in power.” They finally demanded the government to issue posting orders to the crucial police officers kept under compulsory wait and “provide a congenial working environment to the State Government machinery.”
