‘BJP doesn’t consider Dogras capable of Government jobs’: Harsh Dev Singh




Harsh Dev Singh

Harsh Dev Singh, Chairperson of Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party had an exclusive interview with JK Media executive Ashish Kohli. He talked about

Q. BJP is confident it will win the elections next time and CM will too be from BJP. The next thing is Delimitation. How do you see these things?

Dreaming is not bad. Let them dream about all this. But has BJP ever observed the conditions of Jammu? What’s actually happening here? 7 years back your Government was formed in India as well as in Jammu and Kashmir but J&K has received nothing instead lost it’s Statehood. We saw Telangana had to put in so much of effort to get it’s Statehood and we lost that.

BJP made our State into an Union Territory which is free for everyone now. In fact, it was the only ‘Dogra State’. Our jobs, lands and every other thing has been taken away. People from outside can make Domicile and buy property here. In my area of Ramnagar, people from Bihar and Chattisgarh have become postmen. This means BJP doesn’t consider Dogras capable of Government jobs.

Talking about Delimitation, the first thing that comes to mind of anyone especially Panthers Party is that both the Tracts (khittas) should have equal allotments. After abolition of article 370, we all have observed the inequality of jobs between Jammu and Kashmir be it Fire Services or Assistant Professors. Not even one job post of Clinical Assistant professor was provided to Jammu. Similarly, all 76 posts of Work Supervisor were given to Kashmir.

Panthers Party demands equitable treatment with Jammu. We aren’t against Kashmir’s tracts but we want ours. BJP is making grounds on 2011 census for seats in Jammu. Let me remind them census will not be considered during elections. According to Jammu and Kashmir reorganisation Act, there will be a total of 90 seats which will be divided on the basis of population, physical features, facilities of communication and convenience of public.

Our geographical area is 26,293 square kilometres while that of Kashmir is 15,948 square kilometres. Keeping all these factors in mind except population which might be more in Kashmir, Jammu deserves more seats or at least same number of seats. But BJP is in line of blossoming Lotus in Kashmir which is not possible.

You can see Kashmir has good power supply, water supply and other basic facilities whereas Jammu which is burning in summers doesn’t have electricity. This is because of the Political Dominance in the valley with 46 seats and only 37 seats in Jammu.

Deputy Chief Minister of BJP said the 24 seats reserved for PAK occupied Kashmir should have 35% of them de-freeze for the migrants. BJP says this matter would be raised in front of Delimitation Commission. They actually haven’t understood the work of the Commission.

Long back there were a total of 114 seats in J&K which was decreased to 90 after reserving 24 seats. BJP leader Kavinder Gupta now says that the party will request Delimitation Commission to provide them 8 out of those 24 seats. This is shocking! They should understand this isn’t some family rule here (sarcastic smile). Calling yourself champion and and intellectually bankrupted!

Kavinder Gupta should have raised the topic in All Party Meeting in front of PM Modi. He should have asked to amend J&K reorganisation Act but he didn’t. BJP leaders are unfit for governance and unfit for representing Jammu. Our region definitely needs educated and understanding leaders.

Q. Bheem Singh Ji was representing Jammu from Panthers Party. Did he say something in the All Party Meeting?

Bheem Singh did raise Jammu issues. But a single person cannot speak much within limited time. If more people would have spoken, issues would be clear. Anyways more leaders were called from Kashmir to listen to their matter. Their voice was heavier than us. Jammu’s public now needs to understand how we are being deprived of our rights and ignored. The youth is in anger and has to take a stand.

Q. BJP is dreaming for the next CM. Are you ready to teach them laws?

My classes are always ready for them. First of all they need to learn about Panch and Sarpanch because they aren’t even ready for Panchayat elections. BJP uses Media for its selfish needs. The day when Jammu gets effective leadership, it will be back on track and Panthers Party is ready to take that responsibility.

Common Eligibility Test for job aspirants from early 2022: Dr Jitendra




Dr Jitendra

Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space Dr Jitendra Singh today said that a Common Eligibility Test (CET) for job aspirants will be conducted across the country from early 2022.

This unique initiative undertaken with the personal intervention of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to screen and shortlist candidates for recruitment to Central Government jobs was scheduled to take off with the first such test before the end of this year, but is likely to get delayed on account of COVID pandemic, he said.

Speaking after the launch of e-Book Civil List-2021 of IAS officers, Dr Jitendra Singh said, the Common Entrance Test is a path-breaking reform carried out by Department of Personnel & Training (DoPT) to bring about “Ease of Recruitment” for young job aspirants and it will prove to be a major boon for youth, especially those living in far-flung and remote areas. This landmark reform is also a reflection of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s deep and sensitive concern for the youths and his keenness to provide level playing field and equal opportunity to youth across the country, he added.

The Minister further informed that the National Recruitment Agency (NRA) for conducting Common Eligibility Test has been constituted with the approval of the Union Cabinet. NRA will conduct CET to screen/shortlist candidates for jobs in Government sector for which recruitment is presently carried out through the Staff Selection Commission (SSC), Railway Recruitment Boards (RRBs) and Institute of Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS).

Dr. Jitendra Singh said that the NRA will be a multi-agency body which will conduct the common test to screen and shortlist candidates for Group-‘B’ and ‘C’ (non-technical) posts. The most significant feature of this reform is that every district in the country will have at least one Examination Centre which would greatly enhance access to the candidates living in far-flung areas, he added.

Dr. Jitendra Singh said that the historic reform will provide a level playing field to all the candidates, regardless of his or her background or socio-economic status. There will also be a huge benefit to women and Divyang candidates and for those who find it financially unaffordable to appear for multiple tests by travelling to multiple Centres.

Dr Jitendra Singh said that the push given to DoPT in the last seven years by the Narendra Modi Government resulted in a number of innovations and reforms for the common public good. Referring to a series of out of box decisions since May 2014, he said that the decision to do away with the time old practice of getting documents attested by a gazetted officer and replacing the same with self-attestation, three-month Central Government stint as Assistant Secretaries for IAS officers in the beginning of their career are far reaching in nature.

Speaking about the e-Book IAS Civil List 2021, Dr Jitendra Singh said, the dynamic list will help in selecting the right officer for the right assignment based on available profile and is a vital source of information on the officers manning various posts for the general public. He said, the e-book IAS Civil list is an effort by the Department to contribute towards Digital India initiative of the Government of India. This effort will also ensure economic utilization of resources by reducing the burden on government exchequer, he added.

This is the 66th edition of Civil List and first edition of e-book in pdf with unique search facilities and hyperlinking of contents for ease of access of information at a click of button. By introducing publication of e-Book IAS Civil list 2021, DoPT has done away with the printing of voluminous IAS Civil list. The IAS Civil List contains vital information in respect of officers’ batch, cadre, present posting, pay scale, qualification and date of superannuation along with their overall cadre-wise strength, number of IAS officers retiring in next five years including number of IAS officers appointed on the basis of Civil Services Examination from 1969 onwards. The list also contains photographs of IAS officers.

The e-book IAS Civil List, 2021 is also available on the website of the Department at
