Srinagar, Apr 30: Asserting that the scars of 2016 unrest in South Kashmir will continue to haunt people of Kashmir for decades reminding them of Torture & Barbarism on the part of PDP BJP government, the J&K Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) President and party candidate G A Mir has said that people of Shopian & Pulwama should not trust PDP and other opportunist parties which are out to mislead people “again” for electoral benefits

This was stated by G A Mir while addressing meetings of Pulwama, Rajpura and Pampore constituencies at town hall Pulwama and resolved to fight against the betrayal & political exploitation on the part of PDP, BJP, NC and others.

Addressing the gathering Mir said he believes people of Pulwama and Shopian after witnessing bloodshed, brutality and loot by the PDP led government should ensure defeat of PDP, NC and other opportunist Parties in the present elections and cautioned them about their falsehood and political gimmicks aiming to generate peoples support, the fact of the matter was, “Shopian Pulwama has undergone tremendous damages due to misrule and mis-governance on the Part of previous PDP led government in the State,” he said.

 

The Coalition government led by PDP could have averted the damages and loss of precious lives in twin districts of Shopian and Pulwama had they not surrendered their agenda before BJP RSS. It was also unfortunate on its part that after getting a good mandate from South Kashmir this party aligned with the BJP for the sake of power thereby ensuring inroads to communal and fascist forces led by BJP in Kashmir valley.

“The people in Valley especially South Kashmir should not forget as to what the PDP had promised them in 2014 elections and what they (people) achieved after voting for this opportunist Party, people got pellets and bullets in response to their vote and support to PDP in 2014,” Mir said.

Pellet horror in Pulwama, Shopian was outcome of PDPs surrender before BJP, hundreds of bullet injured and pellet injured people were still under treatment in their homes and hospitals, scores of innocent civilians were killed, what was their fault, Mir questioned, their fault was only they were agitating against the barbarism, misrule and mis-governance, they were agitating against the bloodshed and innocent killings during PDP BJP rule, Mir said.

He said the PDP-BJP presided over the darkest era of the State, now the PDP leadership was trying to generate support by showing tears in their eyes, which won’t change the mood of the people, for the fact, they (people) have lost trust will not repeat the mistake they have committed in 2014, Mir said.

Describing the Congress party as strong and unifying force in the Country & State Mir said the Party is capable enough to defeat the communal, fascist forces, which are hell-bent upon to cause damages to special status of J&K, Mir said that people should also realize that the Congress Party is set to form Govt at Centre, will do everything to bring the people of J&K out of morass, besides ensuring their safety and security, besides protecting Special Status granted to J&K, Mir added and appealed people of Shopian and Pulwama district to ensure his victory with a thumping majority.

Mir also assured that Congress Party will take effective measures to bring respite to people in every respect by fighting against corruption and discrimination on the part of opportunist political parties and assured that Party will stay true to its promises.

Srinagar, May 25: Expressing serious concern over the slow pace of developmental works in Jammu and Kashmir, the governor administration has directed the heads of departments to remove the bottlenecks for the execution of the works at the earliest.
Funds worth cores of rupees lapse annually due to its non-utilization in the state.
Despite clear directions for the timely utilization of funds, the developmental works suffer mainly due to the lackadaisical approach of the authorities.
An official document accessed by The Kashmir Monitor reveal that the Advisors to Governor, Chief Secretary, Principal Secretary to Finance Department, in a meeting with the administrative secretaries, expressed serious concern over the slow pace of developmental works.
“Principal Secretary expressed concern regarding the pace of expenditure during the first month of current financial, primarily due to the Model Code of Conduct. He emphasized the need to catch up with the lost time,” the document reads.
The Advisors directed all the administrative secretaries and deputy commissioners to point out “issues faced by them” in execution of the works in a time-bound manner.
Chief Secretary directed the deputy commissioners to identify causes of delay in the works in consultation with all the departments and resolve the problems.
“All the Advisors stated that allotment of works on nomination was highly undesirable. Principal Secretary Finance stated that such practice defeats the purpose of actual discovery of price and is against norms and canons of financial propriety, and should be strictly avoided,” the document reads.
Officials also pointed out that the bills are not being furnished on time for the incomplete projects. This was viewed seriously by the senior officers and administrative secretaries were requested to own up these works at the earliest.
Sources said the dismal performance under PMDP was also viewed seriously and departments were advised to identify and remove bottlenecks so that works under the project are executed on time.
Principal Secretary, Finance Department, Arun Kumar Mehta, also wrote to the district development commissioners to furnish the yearly district action plans.
“All district development commissioners shall initiate tendering process immediately after the end of model code of conduct to ensure that process is completed before March 31. The annual maintenance contract should be based on the rate of contract as per laid down rules and regulations,” the order reads.

Srinagar, May 25: Doctors Association Kashmir (DAK) Saturday welcomed the steps taken by the administrative department of Health and Medical Education (H&ME) department regarding restoration of administrative seniority in health department.
In a statement, DAK spokesperson said the decisions “will instill new energy and confidence among medical officers and consultants.”
“Even though the pace in restoration of administrative seniority is slow, doctors across the state hope that the steps so initiated in last couple of months will be taken to the logical end,” the spokesperson said.
President, DAK, Dr Suhail Naik, as per the spokesperson, said that that the Association has, time and again, demanded the restoration of administrative seniority in health department as per regulations drafted strictly in recruitment rules for appointing such officers.
“In peripheral hospitals it has been observed that it becomes difficult for senior doctors to work under administrative officers, who are junior to them, which leads to indiscipline and unworthy work culture,” Dr Naik was quoted saying by the DAK spokesperson.
The spokesperson said it has been brought into the notice of DAK that some junior doctors “for their vested interests are using their relatives to garner support in front of higher ups so that they can be again re-appointed as administrators in health department.”
“We request the authorities that neither any relative of any doctor nor the general public must influence or interfere in appointing any junior doctor as administrator, this cannot be accepted nor tolerated,” the DAK spokesperson said.
DAK urged Advisor, K Vijay Kumar and Principal Secretary Attal Dullo to further look into the matter and bring some pace in restoration of Administrative Seniority in Health Department as per recruitment rules so that this long pending demand of the doctors is met once for all.
