SRINAGAR: Asking for Union government intervention, opposition leader Omar Abdullah on Wednesday took a jibe at ruling dispensation for putting on hold pays and accounts office (PAO) system.
In his remark on social networking site Twitter, Omar wrote: “For 3 years the J&K legislature was told that this reform would be a major step towards transparent use of funds. A measure approved by legislative vote has been overturned by a mere government order”.
Omar also asked for union government intervention into the move of holding PAO system.
“@PMOIndia & @FinMinIndia need to take a long, hard look at the reasons behind the sudden & arbitary reversal of the PAO system that had been introduced in J&K,” Omar wrote on twitter.
On Tuesday, soon after taking the additional charge of finance ministry, Altaf Bukhari ordered the deferment of Pay and Accounts Office (PAO) System till March 2018.
“We may keep in abeyance the implementation of PAO System till March 31, 2018 in the first place,” the order issued by government read. (PTK)
