Seniority is not a big deal: Jacob Thomas
Thiruvananthapuram: Pointing out that the basis of seniority is getting a top rank by securing more marks in examinations, senior IPS officer Jacob Thomas said on Wednesday that seniority is not a big deal.
"The post of Director of Institute of Management in Government (IMG)is a good one. There are lot of things to be done there," Jacob Thomas said.
He was responding to the questions posed by mediapersons after he met Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan following the cabinet announcement of the appointment of Loknath Behera as the state police chief.
"Securing good marks in the examination is not a big thing. There is nothing unusual in my meeting with the Chief Minister," Jacob Thomas said.
The cabinet appointed Loknath Behera as the state police chief as the present chief T P Senkumar will end his tenure on Friday. As per seniority, the government should have appointed Jacob Thomas as the state police chief. The government has overlooked seniority to appoint Behera as the state police chief.
