Employees of Red Cross Society have submitted a memorandum with the UT Home Secretary,stating that a permanent Joint Secretary be appointed and they would not want to work under the incumbent Punam Malik,who is also the PA of the UT Deputy Commissioner. The appointment of Malik is one of the reasons for the stand off between DC Mohd Shayin and Sub-divisional Magistrate (SDM) Amandeep Kaur.
Amandeep had recently written to the UT Adviser complaining of mental harassment and demanded that she should be shifted from the departments that she was holding. In addition to being the SDM,she is holding the charge of Secretary,Red Cross Society. The letter further mentions that she was not being consulted when decisions were taken about the departments under her. The appointment of Malik is also among the list of grudges.
Over the past few days,the employees of the society have been complaining about her. In the memorandum given by them,the employees have stated that Malik was threatening them and that they do not want to work with her.
