Early Times Report
Srinagar, Aug 13: The contractors who got contracts for various works in the PDP-BJP government in the State Sports Council on Monday locked down it its main office in Srinagar and did not allow employees to work.
The contractors shut the SSC office at GogjiBagh area of the summer capital to demanding their pending payments with the SSC.
"All employees should support us," a contractor was seen telling the SSC employees. "We are with you. We will not work. We will protest with you people," some employees told the contractors.
Later, the SSC employees along with contractors locked down the office and remained outside the building shouting slogans.
"We all have to work together only then our demands are addressed," the contractor told the employees.
Even senior officials joined contractors and skipped their duty. The senior officers' chairs were empty. "We will not work today. We too are on protest along with contractors," an employee told a man who had come to office as his file related to sports is pending there.
An official of SSC said that there is a nexus between contractors and some employees.
"These contractors were helped by a leader of the PDP during the PDP-BJP government," the official said. "They call the shots in the SSC. Even senior officials are following their directives as they have close connections to political parties," the official said.
He said that employees were giving more preference to contractors rather than work. "Look at the condition of washrooms. There is a complete mess with no sanitation. Here few employees have completely hijacked the council. They are not accountable to anyone. They come as per their own will and not following the government's directives on biometric attendance," he added. "One of the employees is even coming in department's Safari vehicle, whose driver is one of the council employees."
Meanwhile, the contractors said that over Rs 7 crore was pending with the SSC.
"Our bills have not been cleared since January 2018. We were forced to lock down the office," a contractor said.
"At Humhama, we constructed a stadium, made pavilion block and pitch. We also did chain link fencing. Renovation works were done at Gani memorial stadium and Amada Kadal stadium. But payment is yet to be made," the contractor said.
"The external agency which made synthetic turf at TRC has received the payment. We have completed all the works. The payments of those doing various works under PMDP are released without any delay," they claimed.
