Make details of Reliance Insurance Scam Public, PDP tells Governor Malik

‘Return money to employees taken fraudulently from them to benefit  the Insurance Company’

Srinagar, Feb 10:  Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has asked Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik to provide details that whether any  action has been taken against officials involved in implementation of Reliance Insurance Scheme which according to Governor himself was full of frauds.

PDP senior leader and former minister Naeem Akhtar has said that the  issue pertaining to the Reliance Health Insurance Scheme that according to Governor  was full of frauds must be probed thoroughly and its mere roll back wouldn’t in any way be sufficient. “Is it sufficient just to roll back something which is admittedly full of frauds. Should nobody be held responsible for it,” Akhtar asked in a statement to FAST KASHMIR.

Demanding that the amount that has been deducted from the employees for the benefit of the insurance company fraudulently be returned to them in order to restore their faith in the system, Akhtar said  that if a Pathwari or a police constable is found involved in a corrupt practice, he is named and shamed even before an FIR is registered. “Why aren’t the names of guilty in this case made public when the governor himself is convinced that something really grave has happened which merited the scraping of the scheme,” said Akhtar.

“Would  the same treatment be made available to any other authority who took  a wrong decision and roll back especially when a decision is taken with huge financial implications,” Akhtar asked.

He added that  it is now fourth month since the order was scraped and  people are worried because it was not a meagre amount involved in the process that Governor has himself hinted was nothing less than scam.

Akhtar said that the Government must come forward and reveal how  much amount has been paid to the company, how much has been deducted from the employees’ salary and what is the volume of benefit that any employees availing themselves of a scheme have received.  “These are very important questions for the people to know in order to be satisfied about the honesty, transparency and accountability in the present administration. The questions would continue to haunt the present dispensation in the state until it comes up with the details and reveal it to state’s tax payers,” said Akhtar.
