Subject: Demoralization of IP/ASPs by the SPOs, Pandharpur Division.
It is brought to the notice of the undersigned that Shri V.G. Kshirsagar, SPOs, Pandharpur Division is adopting tactics which are de moralizing the IPs/ASPs , tarnishing the images of our colleagues & smooth functioning of the Post Offices.
The said Shri V.G. Kshirsagar is managing leave of some officials without knowledge of ASP(HQ) or B (staff) branch .Maximum correspondence are dealt with bypassing the ASP(HQ) i.e. by calling OA directly . When this was brought to the notice of SPOs, he denied to move files through ASP(HQ). Also, certain dealing Assistants were instructed not to show remarks passed by the SPOs to ASP(HQ) in the files concerned.
Further, whenever IPOs/ASPOs pay a visit to HO/SO, insulting remarks are passed by the union bearers because of the humiliation made by the divisional head. Even when the fact was brought to notice of the SPOs, he ignored the activities of trade union resulting in the fueling of illegal activities carried out by the trade union members.
At the time of visit to SO, instructions issued by the visiting IPOs/ASPOs are not followed as Shri Kshirsagar has directed all the SPMs “not to follow the orders of IPOs/ ASPOs” which is totally unfair. This kind of working of the divisional head is putting our colleagues in embarrassing situation.
Sir, one can imagine the situation under which the IPOs/ASPOs of Pandharpur division are working.
Sir, it is also brought to the notice of undersigned that one Shri Y.J. Kazi , PA, Pandharpur division has used abusing and un parliamentary words against ASP(HQ) , Pandharpur dn in front of the staff members in the divisional office. The said SPOs was kind enough to order inquiry. However, it is learnt through sources that the officer to whom inquiry was entrusted was confidentially directed not to complete enquiry till end of March , 2015 as the charged official Shri Y.J. Kazi is due to retire on 31.5.2015 . Thus, Shri Kazi was sheltered by SPOs and the ASP(HQ) still continues to work under undignified and unhealthy atmosphere.
It is also to bring to your kind notice that the said Shri Y.J. Kazi was also involved in another case of accepting articles with used postage stamps in the capacity of counter supervisor at Pandharpur HO , the said incidence was came to the light during visit of Hon’ble PMG, Pune Region.
Sir, had the SPOs, Pandharpur, taken proper note of the misdemeanor reported by ASP(HQ) timely, the above incidence could have been avoided. The only reason which propelled the wrong doings is the shelter offered by SPOs, Pandharpur to such activities. It is worth to note here that in both the above cases, Shri Y.J. Kazi was found guilty in the preliminary inquiry conducted by the Inquiry Officer concerned. But the SPOs consistently put pressure on Preliminary Inquiry Officer i.e. Shri V.U. Kulkarni , ASP(N), Pandharpur for completing inquiry before 31.3.2015 without going in the details of the case.
It is learnt that RO, Pune has directed to issue Rule 14 charge sheet to shri Y.J.Kazi however, SPOs has issued charge sheet under Rule 16 for the reasons best known to him. More interesting, RO Pune has overlooked the disobedience of Shri Kshirsagar, SPOs, Pandharpur, thereby leaving ample scope that he is having red carpet treatment at RO, Pune.
In this regards, I request your kind honour to interfere in this matter and arrange to issue necessary directions to PMG, Pune so that to curb the illegal activities carried out by Shri V.G. Kshirsagar , SPOs, Pandharpur.
With profound regards,
Circle Secretary &
ASPOs, Vashi Sub Dn,
Navi Mumbai Division
The Postmaster General, Pune Region.
