It may take a few months more to distribute the staff between two states and it is likely to be completed by December this year. That means, KCR and Naidu have to wait few more months to put the administration on the fast track.
As of now, each officer is looking after several departments, leaving the files mount in the offices. Officers have no time to examine the files.
The files pertaining to All India Service officers allocation is doing rounds between the Prime Minister’s Office and Department of Personnel and Training for the past one month. Both the states are seeking changes in the list of allotments finalized by DoPT.
G. Deviprasad, president, TNGOs association said, “We will not accept appointment of Seemandhra employees in Telangana under the pretext of shortage of staff in TS at higher-levels. These posts have to be filled through promotions to existing staff and TS government should be allowed to fill the vacancies that arise at lower-level due to promotions, on its own by conducting recruitment examinations”.
Mr Deviprasad added, “The Kamalnathan Committee is trying to fill all the higher-level posts with Seemandhra employees. The committee is being influenced by some Seemandhra leaders”.
Responding, APNGOs president P. Ashok Babu said, “The committees have been working based on the provision incorporated in the AP Reorganisation Act, made in Parliament. No one raised their voices in Parliament when the Bill was introduced. There is no point in opposing it now after the Act was made.”
