‘Land for construction of COVID hospital denied’
STATE TIMES NEWS
RAJOURI: Demanding immediate transfer of Deputy Commissioner (DC) Rajouri, the District Development Council (DDC) Chairman Rajouri, Naseem Liaqat alleged that the officer has adopted a biased attitude towards National Conference and is deliberately ignoring development projects and others demands of supporters and workers of the NC party.
While addressing press conference on Thursday, Naseem Liaqat alleged that DC Rajouri, Rajesh Kumar Shavan has adopted a biased attitude.
“DC is ignoring all developmental works pertaining to areas of NC supporters and ignoring genuine demands, projected to him, for the reasons better known to him. Such type of discriminatory behaviour from a senior officer, being anti-people, is unacceptable,” he added.
Elaborating further, Naseem told that recently in a significant case, a project for construction of 50-bedded Hospital in Rajouri District was secured from an American NGO, for which he asked DC to provide adequate land in the district, preferably at Panchari village, for welfare of people in ongoing COVID pandemic, but it is really a matter of shame that DC Rajouri straightway refused to provide land for construction of COVID hospital, said Naseem.
He further said that in another case of targeting National Conference members, the DC Rajouri, has ordered illegal arrest of Provincial Secretary, Youth National Conference Waqar under Sections 107 & 117 of IPC, without conveying him the nature of offence or issuing any prior show cause notice.
“Such behavior of DC Rajouri is not good for overall development of the border district and its people. He should be immediately replaced with some competent and talented officer at an earliest,” said Naseem. The DDC Chairman urged the Lt Governor and Chief Secretary for initiating necessary action against delinquent officer besides replacing him with another incumbent, within a couple of days, failing which large scale protests will be held in the district.
