SRINAGAR Scores of BOSE employees on Monday staged protests against Government for appointing a KAS officer in the board saying the government has violated the JKBOSE Act.
The employees associations in JKBOSE, which include officers association, non-gazetted employees association and technocrats union, assembled in the JKBOSE premises and staged an hour-long protest against the appointment of a KAS officer in BOSE.
The government on Saturday ordered a reshuffle in civil administration and posted a KAS officer, special secretary higher education department (HED) Riyaz Ahmad as secretary JKBOSE.
JKBOSE Act clearly states that secretary and chairman are appointed through a proper procedure followed by school education department. A search committee is constituted which has framed norms for appointment of secretary, he said, adding that BOSE was not a government department but is an autonomous body.
Government cannot simply transfer a government employee to this institution. Procedure needs to be followed under certain norms.
