Srinagar, Sep 24: Former Minister & Vice-President JKAP Usman majid has sought Centre’s intervention to end Corruption,Nepotisim & Favouritism in the Health Services Kashmir. In a statement issued to news agency Kashmir Dot Com-(KDC), Usman said Director health services Kashmir Dr. Samir Mattoo remains unavailable from his office to attend unnecessary meetings.The non- availability of head of department has caused disruption in the functioning of the department & inconvenience to the general public.
He said that in a recent order the government has asked the bureaucrats not to attend the unnecessary meetings.However, these orders have no takers as bureaucrats like Director Health services kashmir pay no heed to government directives.
Majid also said, A doctor namely Dr. Bashir Ahmad Chalkoo despite being junior in the hierarchy has been given plum postings in the department ever since present Director health services kashmir has assumed charge.The said doctor who has of late become blue eyed boy of Director health services kashmir continues to be bestowed with undue promotion while trampling over the due rights of senior officers in the department.
The integrity, prestige & glory of the sacred health department has been lost due to the incompetence of Director health services kashmir.These officers think they are unaccountable because of their close proximity with the power corridors, Usman added.
“On the other hand i acknowledge & appreciate the relentless services of the Doctors, Para medical staff, HDF workers & Asha workers for serving to protect everyone and discharging their duty in every corner of Kashmir to fight against the COVID-19 pandemic,” he said.
Usman urged the Centre as well as LG administration to bring accountability in the system and such truant and unscrupulous officers be brought to task and should be removed from the prestigious posts.
