Why Be Defensive, Mr CM

That appointment of law officers by any state government in India is politically motivated, is a well known fact. These are political appointments (government’s prerogative, if you like), which are made and undone with change of government. Then, why is Punjab Chief Minister Capt. Amarinder Singh being so defensive about the appointment of 121 law offers announced on Friday night. In the fourth month of his tenure at the head of a Congress government, is he betraying a sense of insecurity, or is he being overzealous about projecting an honest face of his government, is anybody’s guess.

 In an official press statement on Saturday, Amarinder Singh tried to trash observations made in the media of favouritism in the appointments, and asserted that “every single appointment of the new law officers in the state government was based on merit after taking into account the professional qualifications and expertise of the candidates.”

Reacting to news reports suggesting that kin of some Congress leaders and influential people perceived to be close to the current dispensation in the state had been accommodated in the team, the Chief Minister claimed “all appointments were cleared independently, without bias or prejudice, and solely on account of individual’s background, proficiency and experience.”

He went on to say, “similar considerations were taken into account in the appointment of all law officers, including the daughter of Congress MLA Fateh Singh Bajwa.”

His most astonishing comment, however : “It was unfortunate that a political colour was being sought to be given to the appointments. A candidate’s family connections could not be allowed to be a consideration in the matter of professional appointments. Taking such a view would lead to depriving such candidates the opportunity they deserve and, at the same time, deprive the state government of the services of efficient and meritorious professionals.”

While merit of the appointees may not be an issue of debate, the fact remains that the appointments are made with appeasement of influential people close to the power that be in the state in mind. Otherwise why is that particular law officers always make a comeback, at times in Punjab, and at other times in  Haryana, when any party they, or their kin, are perceived to be close to returns to power. This happens with every state government and there is nothing to be defensive about it.
