NC demands inquiry by independent agency into mass illegal transfers
Rather conducts two-day extensive tour of Chrar Constituency
Chrar-e-Sharif: National Conference on Tuesday demanded a high-level inquiry by an independent agency into the slew of mass illegal transfers across various departments in gross violation of established norms and procedures and said these transfers were being affected for political and other considerations.
Addressing various public workers’ meetings during his two day whirlwind tour of Chrar-e-Sharif Constiuency, Senior National Conference leader and Former Finance Minister Abdul Rahim Rather also castigated the Government for neglecting the area in developmental matters.
During his extensive tour of Chrar Constituency, the Senior NC leader visited more than two dozen villages and addressed multiple workers’ meetings in the area. Lashing out at the Government, Rather said landmark developmental initiatives taken by the previous NC-led Government had come to a standstill since the past three years of the present dispensation being at the helm of affairs.
“Because of this gross neglect of the Government’s responsibilities, the delivery of public services in the area has been disrupted causing untold miseries and hardships to the people”, he said.
Referring to the recent shutdown in Chrar Town, Rather said this unprecedented shutdown indicated the depth of anguish and resentment against the gross negligence of the Government towards the problems being faced by the people.
“Chrar Town which traditionally has not taken recourse to localized hartals and shutdowns even in the worst of times was forced to observe an unprecedented shutdown on Monday and this should wake up the Government from its deep slumber. The grievances of the people are falling on deaf ears as their day to day lives have been adversely affected”, said Rather.
