Poswal Among Front Runners
Srinagar, Dec 28: People’s Democratic Party (PDP) leader and Vice Chairman, State Advisory Board for the Development Gujjars and Bakerwals, Choudhary Zaffar Ali Khatana here Wednesday tendered his resignation to Chief Minister from the post of Vice Chairman State Advisory Board for the Development of Gujjar Bakerwals.
Zaffar has mentioned in his resignation that he has been holding this position for last three years, without any power. People came to me with the hopes to get their genuine demands addressed but I have to cut a sorry figure as I have no power vested in the chair mentioned in his resignation letter when we have contacted with a Senior Party leader about the reason to resign from the Post of VC by Zaffar Ali, a Senior party leader in his reply said that its totally if he had been nominated as Vice Chairman he has power to use them but reality is this that he miserably failed to serve his community which disappointed to every body from Party level to public., However Zafar Denied the Allegations said Party is ignoring my Selfless Service in Hard times.
People of Gujjar Bakerwal community also alleged that Khatana totally failed on ground level he did nothing for the welfare and betterment of community.
students of the Gujjar Bakerwal Hostels are facing immense hardship they have no even basic amenities in the Hostels in routine they were up in arms against for not providing them Books, uniform and other stuff which they required for their study they alleged.
But reliable sources in the party said that allegation of the Khatana, that he has no power as VC of Board are baseless but he was asked by the party to resign as his style of work was not satisfactory and for his poor performance in last three years the Chief Minister wants to replace him. After his resignation from the prestigious Post, hectic lobbing has started in the ruling PDP regarding selection of the New face.
Sources in PDP said that State General Secretary of Gujjar Bakerwal Conference, Choudhary Mohd Yasin Poswal, who was contesting election as an independent from Anantnag Constituency for MP seat and latter while extending his support to Tasaduq Mufti he had withdraw his form and had joined the party is Front runner and may get a chance. Poswal who is Contractor by Profession, joined PDP this year and is having a good influence among Gujjar community across State, before joining he was working as an activist.
Scores of activists of GB community said that if he is to be nominated as VC for this post we have ray of hope in him that he would work for the better and welfare of downtrodden and he has knowledge about the problems and issues of community and he is one among other leader of GB Community who can come up as per hope and aspiration of Youth and poor people and they while commenting for other Gujjar leader from valley said that people have checked them and we have no expectations on them and they have no quality of good leadership as compared to Poswal.
Pertinently Senior PDP Leader and Former MLA Bandipora Adv Nizamuddin-Bhat was appointed as
Vice Chairman of J&K Wakf Board here on Wednesday. This key slot was vacant since last month after the resignation of Peer Muhammad Hussain.
Several youth leader and activists from Valley while responding me said that Vice Chairman must be nominated from Valley and Yaseen Poswal is best choice for them they said.
