CHANDIGARH : Resentment is brewing among various departments of the Chandigarh Administration with distribution of Administration's diary 2017. The diary brought out by the UT Administration for 2017 makes an interesting though ironical contrast with the one last year.
Whether by accident or by design, the recently distributed diary skips the contact numbers of various Administration's departments and their respective heads. In what is perceived to be another trigger for a flash point in the already strained relationship between the 'self-glorified' public servants ruling the roots in Chandigarh and the unstopple member of Parliament Kiron Kher as her name figures at the end of the one-page carring IAS names and their contact numbers.
Juxtapusa the diary meant for this year and year before one finds out lot of difference that stands out in stark contrast. The contrast holds the potential for debate and some tension.
The diary 2016 has provided 108 pages for important information regarding all departments of chandigarh administration, municipal corporation and tourism etc but diary 2017 skips all this important information and provided only two pages to IAS/PCS/HCS officiaof and there is no emergency numbers including PGI, GMSH-16 and GMCH-32.
Diary 2017 though mentioned 'published by Director, Public Relation, Chandigarh Administratio' yet there is no mention of printer. But it mention in very thin words name of designer 'Golden Rabbiut.' While the diary of last year on the front page names of publisher and printers boldly. More or less wording of message of Administrator UT, Chandigarh, is the same to the last year.
While talking to some officials of the administration admitted resentment in departments over the diary as all names and contacts numbers of head of departments were missing. They also revealed that cost of diary and calandar would charged from the each department. One of the officials added that it was happened for the first in the history of Chandigarh that names and contact numbers of various departments have been missing and from its face it appeared not more than that of a 'Bazaaru Diary.
