The Postmortem of Aroot Madni’s Job Appointment


Srinagar, Feb 25: The resentment expressed by a section of netizens over the recruitment of Aroot Madni as an Executive Officer in Khadi Village and Industries Board (KVIB) took a new turn after Aroot declined the job minutes after Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti exhibiting the transparency in her regime directed Chief Secretary to submit an inquiry report in this regard.
With orders of Chief Minister and continuous criticism by netizens mostly from the opposition party, the Kashmir News Bureau (KNB) managed to conduct a sort of postmortem of the appointment process to brought truth before public.

The KNB came to know that KVIB (Khadi and Village Industries Board) had placed an advertisement for 101 posts including Executive Officer in the year 2016, October 08 in which hundreds of applications were received by the department including from Aroot Madni, the son of PDP Vice President Sartaj Madni.
During our postmortem KNB came to know that the Competitive written test (OMR sheets) of KVIB was held from 10 to 13 August, 2017 subsequent to which KVIB published list of shortlisted candidates for interview vide notification KVIB/05 Dated 11.12.2017.
From January 27th this year KVIB held interviews for various posts, the schedule of the interview was notified vide No. KVIB/Adm/M-585/6779. Earlier KVIB published notifications regarding revised candidates shortlisted vide notification No. KVIB/M-585/6813 dated 26.01.2018.
This was a series of the notifications regarding the post of Executive Officer KVIB. But, what blunts this criticism is that from the parameter of Qualification to examination to interview process all the given out legal procedures for recruitment were carried out which has made it look a politically motivated criticism.
Earlier sharply reacting to the undue criticism over his son’s recruitment, senior ruling PDP leader Mohammad Sartaj Madni has said “children of political workers have also right to exist with dignity, if not, bring them to Lal Chowk and hang them.”
Now with Aroot’s declining of job will undoubtedly bring end to all criticism but this have raised a question that if kith and kins of a politician be it Sartaj Madni or Syed Ali Geelani gets job/selection in government sector is it nepotism every time. (KNB)
