Early Times Report

SRINAGAR, May 16: Many ministers do not attend their offices in the Civil Secretariat here, while there are no nameplates outside offices of a number of bureaucrats and other officials, causing inconvenience to the visitors.
"There are no nameplates even after 10 days have passed since the Secretariat opened in Srinagar," sources told Early Times. "There is total chaos and confusion. We even don't know which bureaucrat is sitting in which room due to absence of name plates," the sources said.
The absence of nameplates is giving a tough time to the people inside the Secretariat. "It is puzzling why nameplates have not been installed outside offices of many bureaucrats," Ghulam Rasool, a resident of Pampore, said. "Government seems not interested in provide relief to the people," said Rasool while waiting outside the chamber of a minister. Since the 'Durbar' shifted to Srinagar from Jammu, most of the PDP-BJP ministers prefer not to stay in the Secretariat. "We visited the Secretariat twice about the health issues in our district, including lack of staff and shortage of medicines at the district hospital," said Mohammad Subhan, a resident of Ganderbal.
He was waiting along with a group of people outside the Health Minister's chamber in the Secretariat on Wednesday. "The officials said the minister is not here, so we have to return home without meeting the minister," he said.
Another delegation from Handwara had to return home from the Secretariat after the ministers they wanted to meet were not available. "We visited thrice in the last three days for redressal of sanitation problems, shortage of drinking water and health issues. Every time we have to return home as the concerned ministers are not available here," a group of residents said.
"Few ministers who come to the Secretariat come for mere formality. They stay for an hour and leave without meeting the people," said a security official, wishing anonymity.
Sources said most of the ministers remained available only on the first day when Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti received Guard of Honour after which she held a meeting with ministers.
