Fatehgarh Sahib, December 06, 2018: The post of SDM Fatehgarh Sahib has become a matter of great concern for the people of sub division as no one likes to be posted here and whosoever is posted got transfer within months and within the span of 5 months 7 SDMs have been transferred. The present SDM of Fatehgarh Sahib sub division Amit Bambey, who took charge as SDM on 23rd October managed to get transfer to Patiala and District Grievances Officer Dr. Sanjeev Kumar has been the additional charge as SDM. He had also earlier served as SDM from31st August to 22nd October.
Sources told that the open warning of MLA Kuljit Singh Nagra that he will not allow any officer particularly SDM, Tehsildars and police officials to indulge in corrupt practices is forcing them to get transfer from here. Whereas opposition leaders allege that undue interference of MLA and his wife is forcing officers to get transfer.
The situation has come to such a point that no one is ready to be posted as SDM Fatehgarh Sahib. As the annual Saheedi Jor Mela, the major event of district is going to be commemorated from 25th of December and the administration has to made arrangements in advance but the Govt. does not appear to be sincere all the roads leading to Gurudwara Sahib are in worst condition and dug by Sewerage board. The repair and widening of main Road is in progress but the work is going on snail pace and may not be completed in time.
Sher Singh President Municipal Council Sirhind said that strange are the ways of Capt. Amrinder Govt. which came in power with the promise of Good governance but within 5 months 7 SDMs have been transferred it has worstly affected the Council working.
The residents and even Congress leaders are surprised over the frequent transfer of SDMs and said it looks there is no government in State and no rule of law and the Govt. has failed on all fronts.
