JK bank hub of corruption, nepotism from decades: Er Aijaz Hussain

SRINAGAR: BJP youth leader Er. Aijaz Hussain while demanding probe into the recruitment scams in J&K Bank says the bank has been the hub of corruption and nepotism from decades.

ER Aijaz Hussain National Vice President of Youth wing of ruling party BJP while speaking with News agency Press Trust of Kashmir said “JK Bank who was once a repute organisation of the state has now become the hub of corruption and nepotism and alleged that the beneficiaries of theses scams are trying every means to save the culprits”.

He further said that they are not making the data of JK bank public owing to the fear that its bluff in making illegal appointments and other irregularities will be exposed. “All the posts from peons to PO to managers have been sold off to ineligible candidates on account of pecuniary gains and political mileages ” Aijaz added. “Many candidates have been selected on the basis of recommendations made by political leaders in their favour. Merit has become a casualty. Region, constituency, favoritism, nepotism, cheating and fraud have trumped necessary qualifications” he added.

He further added last month Governor Sayta Pal Malik said that there are lot of scams in J&K bank then why Governor closed that case and no action has been taken so far, added if J&K Bank brought under purview of the Right to Information (RTI) Act this will help in crumbing the corruption and malpractices which has been unnoticed for decades.

Er Aijaz added that “if governor closed the case then it will be injustice with the qualified youths of the state and will further create mistrust among the youths”. He further added that Governor is very serious in curbing the corruption in the state and demanded the independent probe into the recruitment scams. (PTK)
