Senior IAS officer Khursheed Ahmed Ganai is learnt to have decided to quit if the government will not take a call on the appointment of new Chief Secretary of the State “as per the seniority and set rules.”
A close aide of Financial Commissioner Industries and Commerce Khurshid Ahmed Ganie told CNS that there is not an iota of doubt that Ganie will resign in case government violates seniority norms and appoint BR Sharma as the new Chief Secretary of the State.
He said Principal Secretary Planning, B R Sharma, who probably is the favourite of the government for CS post is on the 5th number in the seniority list and behind Ganai. “I am telling with authority that Khursheed Sahab will resign if government violates seniority list and appoints Sharma as the new Chief Secretary,” he said.
“Of Course there will be resentment if government does not appoint new Chief Secretary as per the seniority of officers. Reputation of senior officers is at stake. It will be better if government gives preference to seniority norms,” a 1982-batch IAS officer, Ganai told CNS.
