Identify political leaders: Drabu to Guv

Srinagar, Oct 28: Former Finance Minister Dr Haseeb Drabu on Sunday expressed shock over the following revelations by Governor Satya Pal Malik that nearly 600 political favourites were appointed in Jammu and Kashmir Bank.

Taking to social networking site Twitter, Dr Drabu wrote: “@jandkgovernor has made a startling revelation: J&K Bank’s Relationship Executive recruitment list of 582 was changed by “political leaders”. Pls name the “political leaders” who got it done. When did it happen? How was it done? This is beyond shocking! Unbelievable!”

Drabu’s reaction after the state governor Satya Pal Malik made a sensational disclosure that the politicians in BJP-PDP government got the entire selection list of selected candidates changed to adjust their relatives and workers.

Reacting to Governor’s expose, former chief minister Omar Abdullah also tweeted, “More skeletons fall out of the cupboard- PDP-BJP changed entire selection list of J&K Bank to appoint favourites: Guv”.

The J&K Congress on its official tweeter handle said, “Another organisation PSC destroyed by appointing mediocre people with PDP+BJP loyalities”.
