Jammu NOV-1: Slamming the flawful decision of the government to alter administrative jurisdiction of Bhallasa from Doda, Ishtiaq Naik, District President Doda, National Secular Forum criticized the anti public policy of government to harass the innocent people of Bhallasa to travel to Bhaderwah instead of Doda for their official work.
While addressing the press media today in his office, Ishtiaq Naik expressed his anguish over the manner in which such decisions are taken when the people are made to travel a distance of 115 kms from Bhallasa to Bhaderwah in the office of ACD instead of Doda which is just 60 kms for getting their official work done.
He said that more than 80 thousands population of Bhallasa are aghast and are not happy with the decision of government.
Quoting the version of officials, he said that govt is going to open Gandhoh-Jaie-Bhadarwah road which remains closed during winter season due to heavy snowfall and cannot serve the desired purpose.
While appreciating the demand and views of 53 Panchayats of Bhallasa, Ishtiaq Naik strongly urged the government to reconsider and take back its decision for forcing to go to Bhaderwah instead of Doda otherwise the people will feel constraint to come on the road to launch long drawn agitation for the purpose, he added.
