Budgam, Aug 11: Scores of Panchs from Khansahab Block of Central Kashmir’s Budgam district staged a protest against Block Development Officer for failing to curb ‘corruption’ menace in the Block.
The protesting Panchs alleged that they are being demanded bribe during the allotment of the works. They said Sarpanches in the Block Khansahab area hand in glove with Block Officers and distribute works among their friends and relatives without following prescribed norms.
One of the protesting Panchs said that they took up the issue several times with BDO Khansahab but he didn’t initiate action against the corrupt elements.
“To get any work done even that may be in public interest, you have to pass through a hierarchy which these officers have set up,” the protesters said adding from Sarpanch to VLW to JE to BDO nobody listens to them.
They threatened to resign en-masse if corruption is not curbed in the Block. (KNT)
