Masoodi gives “Zero Hour” notice on important issues
Srinagar: National Conference Member Parliament has given “Zero Hour” notice to raise issues of grave concern pertaining people of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh.
According to the NC spokesperson, these issues include: plight of eighty thousand daily rated, casual, need based Workers that constitute the backbone of key departments like PDD, PHE, Forest, Wildlife, Fisheries etc.
Masoodi stated that the Workers are waiting for their regularization for decades and forced to live on meager wages that also remain in arrears for months together. The NC Mp highlighted the uncertainty faced by 172 CIC operators of the Rural Development Department and demanded their regularization at the earliest.
He also raised the issue of manpower deficiency in healthcare care institutions across Jammu and Kashmir and in particular South Kashmir.
Making pointed reference to the instances of deficiencies in Hospitals at all levels, Masoodi stated that the PHC Kapran, Verinag, and Covid Hospital at Check Wangnoo Qazigund are without services of a single doctor. “The Model Hospital Doru with CT facility available doesn’t have an expert to operate it and PHC Verinag, though equipped with a digital X-ray machine does not have a technician to operate it. The situation is no different elsewhere. He has demanded fast track recruitment at all levels.”
Masoodi drew attention of the LG and Chief Secretary to the plight of hundreds of trained unemployed dental surgeons protesting at Jammu for months and exhorted the LG administration to clear the proposal for sanction of more than 500 dental surgeon vacancies, so that their services strengthen the healthcare system.
