The unbridled bureaucratic attitude in Uttarakhand has often been making headlines. In view of this, Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami has now found a way through the All India Service Conduct Manual to tighten the bureaucracy. Now IAS will not be able to exert political or any other kind of pressure on its top officers regarding their service related matters including transfer, posting. Secretary Personnel and Vigilance Arvind Singh Hyanki has sent a letter to all the IAS in this regard. It has also been clarified that if anyone violates this rule of the All India Service Conduct Rules, a proper entry will be made in his service book.
Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami had expressed displeasure over the officers not standing in the honor of caretaker Chief Minister Tirath Singh Rawat during the swearing-in ceremony. The very next day, Chief Minister Dhami expressed his intentions regarding the bureaucracy by replacing Chief Secretary Om Prakash. After this he made a big reshuffle in the bureaucracy. This was bound to create panic in the bureaucracy.
Now the Chief Minister has taken a big step in the direction of curbing the bureaucracy by teaching the lesson of the All India Service Conduct Manual. It is discussed that after the recent bureaucratic reshuffle, efforts were being made to create political pressure. In view of this, the government has taken a tough stand. In this episode, a letter has been sent to the officers of the Indian Administrative Service of Uttarakhand cadre on behalf of Secretary Personnel and Vigilance.
It has been said that under Rule 18 of the All India Service Conduct Rules, the members of the cadre cannot exert political or any other kind of pressure on the higher officials regarding their service-related matters. If anyone does this then it will be a violation of the rules. All officers have been asked to ensure that this rule is fully complied with.
