MENDHAR, :
Sarpanchs Association Mendhar
has demanded filling up of posts
of BDOs lying vacant in various
blocks of district Poonch.
Talking to media persons here
today, Showkat Choudhary, pres-
ident of Sarpanch Association
Mendhar expressed strong resent-
ment against the Administrative
Department of Rural
Development authorities in J&K.
He alleged that many posts of
BDOs are lying vacant but the
concerned Director and
Commissioner /Secretary are
least bothered to fill up the vacant
posts. It has been learnt that this is
not the case only in Poonch but in
other districts as well same is the
position.
Choudhary said that at least
six Block Development Officers
were shifted during last one year
in Mendhar Sub Division only,
resulting in huge set back to
labourers and development of
Panchayats as well. Mendhar
block is the largest one in the
district and no permanent BDO
has been posted here for a long
time. In the absence of BDO, the
labourers who have undertaken
various development works have
to suffer a lot as they alleged that
their issues were not being sorted
out in the office. Many labourers
have not been paid their MGN-
REGA payments since long.
He further
alleged that in the
absence of BDO
the bills of the
people/ contrac-
tors and other
files biting dust in
BDO’s office for
long. Six 6
BDOs were post-
ed and changed
here but no one
was sent to
assume office
permanently. As the BDO is head
of the block and without his pres-
ence all works come to a halt, he
added.
Sarpanchs Association
Mendhar has urged the Lt
Governor J&K Union Territory,
GC Murmu to intervene personal-
ly and effect changes in the RDD
from top to bottom as the things
are not moving properly within
the department for the last many
months. It needs total over haul-
ing of the system in the depart-
ment. They said adhocism should
be stopped and BDOs be posted
in each block as one BDO is hold-
ing 3-4 charges in each district,
which is highly unjustified.
Several other Sarpanchs
including Wasim Khan and
Shariq Khan were also present on
the occasion.
