Jammu, Jan 20: Senior National Conference leader Mohammad Akbar Lone here on Saturday alleged that a non state subject has been appointed on a key position in the transport department through backdoor without following the proper selection procedure.
Taking part in the debate on the motion of grants for the transport department Lone raised the issue of the appointment of the said non state subject through backdoor without following the proper selection procedure and said “I want to know who is the RSS agent appointed by the department controlled by the transport minister without following the proper selection procedure”.
Responding to the allegation of Lone, Minister for Transport Sunil Sharma said no non-state subject has been given a permanent job in his department. The minister, however, said they have hired expert services of one non-local as an advisor to the government for Transport department.
