Jammu, December 03 | The perception that corruption in the U.T post abrogation of Article 370 will get a death blow particularly in RDD & U.T. will be fast on the track of progress and transparency, is seemingly a hollow slogan on the past of U.T. administration and in fact, nothing has changed on ground and apparently we are in a situation of “Old wine in new bottles.”
This was stated by Gosawoon Ram, Panch, Halqa Panchyat JAR of the remotest Block- Paddar, Sub-Division Paddar of District Kishtwar, who after running from pillar to post, was compelled to come to the fourth pillar of democracy to give vent to his grievances. A deputation of the Panchyat Halqa JAR, Block Paddar called on Commissioner/Secretary to Government Rural Development Department and narrated several irregularities of incomplete works done but full payments made in the Block particularly in Panchyat JAR and several works completed but payments denied till date.
The commissioner/Secretary to Government PMGSY/PWD was also approached by Panch, Gosawoon Ram with a serious complaint that a position of road under PMGSY in Panchyat JAR has been tendered in 2017 but land demarcation has not been done so far by Rev. Department, as a result, a big question mark has been raised against the administration for its partisan attitude. Both the Commissioners of PWD/ PMGSY as also the RDD gave a patient hearing and directed the ACD District Kishtwar & other concerned subordinate functionaries for taking appropriate necessary action.
