Telangana natives stand to lose: TS unions

Hyderabad: The methodology adopted by Kamalanathan Committee in allocation of employees between Telangana and Andhra Pradesh is creating a fresh controversy. Telangana employees associations allege that the panel was not following the rules thus meting out injustice to natives of Telangana. They resolved to bring the matter to the notice of Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao to set right the anomalies.


Kamalanathan panel is in the process of preparing provisional allocation list in department of civil supplies, panchayat raj, animal husbandry, economics and statistics among other departments. Although fifteen days time would be given to file objections after the announcement, it has already stirred up a hornet’s nest.


According to Telangana Gazetted Officers’ Association, the panel was allocating Andhra natives, who gave Telangana option based on spouse/widow/single woman grounds, at first. Only later, the panel was going through applications of Telangana natives, who preferred their own state for posting, it rued.


It is unfair to fill up vacant slots in the Telangana region with non-local employees on priority basis and then consider requests of sons of the soil. A Telangana employee seeking posting in his or her state is his or her right but it is being violated, alleged TGO organizing secretary Syed Saleemuddin. “Local candidate opting for local state is his right.


The non-local candidate option for ‘other than local state’ is mere consideration and it cannot be taken up as right for allocation,” Saleemuddin added.Applications received under spouse/widow/single woman category ought to be considered under compassionate and sympathetic grounds, but not at the expense of local employees, pointed out union leaders.


Meanwhile, Telangana unions also faulted the panel for making allocations under reverse seniority basis. Non-local employees, who are at total below in the seniority list, were given postings as Director/Joint Director/Deputy Director/Assistant Director in Telangana to fill up the vacancies. If a Joint Director post is filled with a non-local, five to six Telangana employees, whose rank is below that particular post would not get promotions, rued leaders.


Once allocation process gets completed, Telangana government could fill up vacancies in various departments by giving promotions to deserved candidates, but Kamalanathan panel is not leaving any scope for that. “It is very unfortunate that Telangana staff did not get due promotions in the unified state, and if the above stated mistakes are not addressed, it will be the same fate for us even in the new state,” one of the leaders said.
