Srinagar, September 13: The Estates Department has served fresh eviction notices to former legislators asking them to Vaccate government accommodation in a week.
A former legislature called the fresh move by the estates department as political Vendetta and as part of larger conspiracy by the rulling party to silence the opposition.
” How can plurastic voices flourish when rulling party is muzzling the opposite voices. This doesn’t speak of healthy trend in a democracy,” he told KNS.
Another former Minister who is under house arrest called the move Bizarre, “Government has kept us under house arrest in same accommdations for which we have received eviction notices. If they had such plans, why they shifted us from jail to house arrest. Was that to hoodwink public , intelligentsia and human rights group.”
Another former legislature sees it as a pattern after downgrading security to erase the existing leaders from the mainstream camp so that “BJP leaders can have a field day in J&K.”
” Earlier they downgraded our security. publically they allow us to carry political activities but tactfully they downgraded our security so that we are politically paralysed at one place,” he told KNS..
“All former legislators have been asked to vacate official residences immediately. We have received orders from higher authorities to vacate all these leaders from official residences. All those who are not in government have to vacate the official residences,” the official said.
Former Minister Naeem Akhtar has vacated the government accommodation after a notice was served to him.
Meanwhile, former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has decided to Vaccate his official residence in the month of September only which he was entitled as former Chief Minister.
