Early Times Report

BARAMULLA, Feb 20: Soon after the announcement of Chief Minister of JK for the establishment of Passport Seva Kendra in Baramulla district, the postal department has refused to provide space for opening of passport office at this north Kashmir district.
Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti made a tweet yesterday in which she had said that, "to ensure passport services for the masses, post office passport Seva Kendras are being established in HPOs in the country.
This will facilitate passport services on a larger scale and wider coverage. After Anantnag, Kathua and Baramulla, inaugurated a Kendra for Srinagar today, she said in her tweet.
Well placed sources told Early Times that, "people from all sections of Baramulla district have welcomed the statement cum announcement of Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, Mehbooba Mufti for the establishment of Passport Seva Kendra in Baramulla.
Meanwhile Baramulla Joint Coordination Committee (BJCC) said in a statement that, "Baramulla is the oldest district of north Kashmir that comprised of Bandipora, Kupwara, Budgam, and Ganderbal.
"Baramulla district is politically paralyzed and that is why no attention is being given on its development. We will fight 'tooth and nail' with every individual who will go against the development of Baramulla district, statement said.
Statement said CM tweeted that after Anantnag, Kathua and Baramulla, inaugurated a Kendra for Srinagar, but unfortunate part of the story is that, Superintendent of Head Post office Baramulla (HPB) said that they have no space for Passport Seva Kendra (PSK). "I would like to tell the superintendent of HPB that, without knowing the facts he shouldn't mislead the government, as we have enough space for passport office and other sectors also, said senior members of BJCC.
Gen Secy Baramulla Traders Federation, Tariq Mughlo said that, government is playing politics with the sentiments of common masses and they should be aware that, Baramulla public is vigilant and they are observing the things minutely, and govt should not take advantage of it, as the PSK has only need 1100 SQFs.
While as Chairman BWJA, Karamat Qayoom said that, we have always raised the issues with full responsibility and we will support every concern that is for the betterment of people of Baramulla district.
There is no space means that, Head Postmaster is challenging the statement of CM Mehbooba Mufti, as the concerned official should not mislead the government, instead of issuing any derogatory statement they should work on it, said BWJA chairman.
Pertinently the authorities at Baramulla Head Post office have refused to provide the space for Passport Seva Kendra after scarcity of space.
The Superintendent of Head Post office Baramulla Vijay Chowdhary who has said that head post office has not enough space to accommodate a passport office seva kendra.
