Jammu, Dec 9: The newly elected councillor from Kishtwar Municipality has expressed great resentment towards inaction on part of the Deputy Commissioner Kishtwar Angrez Singh Rana towards retrieving the encroached land and Bandobasti Rasta Under Khasra No. 1,2 & 3 of revenue village Poochal.
He threatened to approach the court against him (DC Kishtwar) and the revenue officials involved in allowing the encroachers to encroach the said land.
As per the details available with "Early Times", social activist and newly elected councilor from Kishtwar Municipality Sajjad Ahmed Najjar had written to DC Kishtwar on 26-11-2018 inviting his attention towards encroachment of Shamilat, State Land beside common land in the form of Bandobasti path by some unscrupulous elements and resented the inaction on part of the District administration despite timely intimation several months ago.
As per Sajjad Ahmed Najjar, the issue of encroachment was brought into the notice of incumbent DC Kishtwar and other revenue officials for their intervention to reclaim the encroached land in the larger interest of the common people and to avoid any breach of law and order in the District. He stated that despite the lapse of weeks, it seems no action has been initiated to check the illegal activities of the encroachers. In a complaint address to the Governor's office, Sajjad Ahmed Najjar stated that the Banderkoot path that connects the erstwhile princely state of Kishtwar with Kashmir valley via Banderkoot-Mughalmaidan-Sinthan top- Anantnag having the width of 27 feet and 3 KM long was existing unchanged till 2015 which is also mentioned by the British author Otto Rothfield who used this path in the year 1918.
He said that the path was also used by the nomadic community for traveling to Marwah & Dachhan as this route is the shortest link. He said that the road was handed over to R&B and then to NHIDCL, but to utter surprise these sheds were over taken by some encroachers without any sanction or knowledge of the administration.
He also slammed the Kishtwar Development Authority for their failure in up-keep of ancient temples and shrines beside playing its part in stopping the encroachments around them. He said that even though the state government since November 2017 has launched a massive drive against the land encroachment, but Kishtwar District is the only District where illegal encroachment is still going on and same need to be checked by issuing strict directions to the concern officials at the helm of the affairs.
