The issue of ‘intolerance’ was part of a motivated campaign as the minorities in the country were safer under the Narendra Modi-led government, Union minister Jitendra Singh said on Saturday.”The controversies in the name of intolerance are a part of a motivated campaign, and never before the minorities were so safe as they are now under the Narendra Modi regime,” Singh, Minister of State in the PMO, said while addressing public meeting in R S Pura today.

Lashing out at some of the litterateurs and artists, who recently returned their awards, Singh said that a true writer or artist will never think of returning award and try to live up to the credentials of the award bestowed upon him.”It is for this reason that immediately after independence, a number of eminent writers from minority community came forward to constitute Progressive Writers Forum and opposed the partition of sub-continent,” he said.Singh announced setting up of a Kendriya Vidyalaya in the vicinity and said a proposal will be submitted for establishing a Government of India-aided skill development center to generate employment for the youth.He assured the local MLA of all support to get the bottlenecks cleared for pending works like construction of Panchayat Ghar and upgradation of local High school which pertains to the state government. Lauding the role of minorities, particularly the Sikh community, for standing up bravely for the cause of Jammu during the times of adversity, Singh said that the Labana community comprises an essential component of the state’s social fabric and he will take up their demand for Other Backward Community (OBC) status with Centre whenever their representatives visit Delhi.

Jitendra Singh, who is also the Minister of State for Personnel, said that with the passage of time, the pressure on officers has increased because of the increased expectations on one hand and increased scrutiny by the public and the media on the other.

Union Minister Jitendra Singh

Government officials should not grudge the increased scrutiny by the public as well as the media and learn instead to adapt to it as transparency and accountability are prime areas of emphasis for the present NDA dispensation, Union Minister Jitendra Singh said here today.Addressing a delegation of officers belonging to Central Secretariat Service (CSS), Singh, a Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office, said it was the resolve of the BJP-led government to make governance easy and, at the same time, ensure a work-friendly environment for the officers.<!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The CSS officers had called on the minister to thank him for the speedy disposal of their promotion cases leading to the empanelment of as many 37 officers in one go to the post of joint secretary.”The government is in favour of doing away with avoidable delays in promotions and empanelments so that the officers can work with enthusiasm and a positive frame of mind,” he said.Singh, who is also the Minister of State for Personnel, said that with the passage of time, the pressure on officers has increased because of the increased expectations on one hand and increased scrutiny by the public and the media on the other.”But instead of grudging this changing scenario, we would have to learn to adapt to it and do our best because transparency and accountability are prime areas of emphasis of the Narendra Modi government,” he said.Singh said the DoPT will also contemplate various steps to improve the facilities and privileges available to IAS officers coming on deputation to the national capital so that they do not find themselves at a disadvantage on account of issues related to transportation facility, admission of their children in schools, etc.”In order to deal with the stress of the officers, the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) has of late started a number of new measures, including regular daily ‘Yoga’ for officers across the country from April 1,” he said.

Governor’s rule in Jammu & Kashmir crucial to restore democracy: Jitendra Singh

Union Minister of State in the PMO Jitendra Singh said on Sunday that Governor’s rule in the state of Jammu and Kashmir is important “to restore democracy”.”Governor’s rule does not mean that it will be there permanently, it is also a process of democracy. Sometimes wars are fought to restore peace in the same way sometimes governor rules are imposed to restore democracy,” he said at a function organized by Panun Kashmir, an outfit of Kashmiri Pandits here. In another event here, newly-elected BJP MLA from Billawar Nirmal Singh held former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah responsible for Governor’s rule in the state.”As Omar Abdullah refused to continue as the caretaker Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, Governor’s rule was imposed in the state which otherwise would have been imposed only after January 18,” he told reporters. The leader said that even though BJP is in touch with other parties regarding government formation, it might take a bit longer to form the next government in the state. “The party leadership is in touch with other parties and the channels of dialogue are open. We want to form a government with like minded parties who accept our ideology,” he said.”As the Governor’s rule is in place, we will take time to form the government in the state,” Nirmal added. The state was placed under Governor’s rule following failure of PDP, which emerged as the single-largest party with 28 seats, and BJP with 25 seats in the 87-member Assembly failing to cobble up the required numbers to take a shot at government formation. National Conference won 15 seats and Congress 12 in the results announced on December 23. The decision was also prompted by Omar Abdullah who refused to continue as caretaker Chief Minister on the ground that the state needs a full-time administrator.

MoS PMO Jitendra Singh evades direct reply on Governor’s rule in Jammu and Kashmir

Union Minister of State in the PMO Jitendra Singh evaded a direct reply to a question on Thursday night on the possibility of Governor’s rule in Jammu and Kashmir, saying “I think (the) Governor can answer that”.”I don’t know about all that (imposition of Governor’s rule in the state). I am not equipped to answer that. I think (the) Governor can answer that,” Singh told reporters in Jammu. He was replying to the question about the possibility of Governor’s rule in the state in wake of incumbent NN Vohra sending a report to the Centre on the political impasse after Omar Abdullah asked him to relieve him as caretaker Chief Minister.On the question of the formation of the government in the state by BJP in alliance, he said, “I don’t know about it. It is the party leadership that takes a call on it.” The Governor’s report comes a day after Omar met him in Delhi last night soon after his return from London after a 12-day visit to his ailing parents and asked him to relieve him as caretaker Chief Minister.On a question on the probe into the Sunanda Pushkar death case, the Union minister said, “Why should we single out one case and not talk about other cases. Right now we have other things to talk about.””All people should be questioned. Law must take its own course,” he added. On the question of terror threat, Singh said, “Our government is well prepare to tackle any eventuality. We have taken all measures in this regard.”
