Locals question DPO Kishtwar's enquiry
Theft of Govt cement in Baderwah block
10/18/2018 10:53:35 PM
Early Times Report
Jammu, Oct 18: Residents of Baderwah are questioning the enquiry conducted by District Panchayat Officer (DPO) Kishtwar wherein he has allegedly sided with the criminal elements of Rural Development Department (RDD) block Baderwah.
They have appealed to the Governor , his advisor and Commissioner Vigilance to probe the issue of black-marketing of Government cement in Baderwah.
As reported already after remaining attached for a month or so , all the five accused officials of Rural Development Department block Baderwah were absolved from the crime wherein they were found to be involved in selling Government cement in open market. A video in this regard had become viral on social media and it was on the direction of Chief Minister's office last year that Commissioner Secretary Rural Development Department acted and directed the Director RDD Jammu to take action against the accused officials. The whistle blowers who helped CM's grievance cell with all the proof allege that top officials in Directorate are threatening them with dire consequences.
Government cement was being sold in open market at the behest of four officials of Rural Development Department (RDD) in Baderwah area of Doda some months back . All he four employees of the department were attached with Directorate of Rural Development Jammu on the direction of CM's grievance cell and Commissioner Secretary Rural Development Department . District Panchayat Officer (DPO) Kishtwar Sunil Butyal was appointed as enquiry Officer who absolved all the accused without hearing the other party who provided proof of their involvement in the cement theft.
The accused officials included 2 Village Level workers (VLWs) namely Raja Firdous and Madan Lal and 3 Technical Assistants (TAs) Rajesh Kumar , Anil Sharma and Massarat . All the four officials are posted in BDO office Bhaderwah block.
They were attached after the allegations of misuse of departmental cement which is supplied for various developmental works . The then Director Rural Development Jammu R K Bhat while giving details earlier said that acting on a allegation and complaint that cement of the RDD in Bhaderwah , meant for MG-NREGA works was being misused by some insiders in the department and sold in the black. He on the direction of Commissioner / Secretary constituted a committee headed by DPO Kishtwar Sunil Butyal and also attached four empolyees which included two VLWs and two TA of Bhaderwah block in his office with immediate affect.
"I am not satisfied with the enquiry report prepared by DPO Kishtwar against the attached officials. I want a thorough investigation from the higher authorities especially from Governors office or Vigilance Organization. I have videos with me which prove Govt cement was being unloaded illegally during May -June last year. I have many proofs against RDD officials who are involved in selling of this Government cement to the private person which are sufficient to put them behind the bars. I am shocked to know that DPO has absolved them all and ironically DPO Sunil Butyal never took my statement in this regard as I am the main complainant in this case before CMs grievance cell. The probe has been conducted in mere 2 panchayats of Baderwah while as there are 30 more panchayats where probe was not conducted. DPO is completely impartial and I will agitate this matter before higher-ups "said Adil Farooq the complainant
"We appeal Governor, his advisor and Vigilance commissioner to probe into the loot of Govt cement in Baderwah. The cement smuggler and DPO Kishtwar are two sides of same coin and we demand this issue be probed at highest level" said Shiv Ram a resident of Baderwah
