JAMMU, July 10: Displaced 31 years, as overflowing Tawi River uprooted entire Basti-now developed as Maharaja Hari Singh Park- Pardeep Kumar yet to get allotted a plot at Qasim Nagar, where other inmates of the Basti were rehabilitated.
"Several dozen families were evacuated by the administration, and latter all the displaced families were rehabilitated at Qasim Nagar, as the furious Tawi left everyone homeless, unfortunately after an un-tired struggle of over three decades, I could not get, what I was supposed to like others", said Pardeep Kumar, a helper, works in a private workshop.
"P Chakraborty, the then Vice Chairman Jammu Development Authority (JDA) asked me settled at a plot (no. 267 as per JDA), I stayed there for 27 years and raised a temporary shelter for my family's survival", he said and added that some lower rung JDA officials allotted his plot to someone else, who already possesses three plots" he stated. "As per policy for rehabilitation of displaced persons' a plot measuring 3 Marlas was to be allotted to each family. But one Gopal Krishan in connivance of some JDA officials hatched conspiracy got allotted my plot (267) in his own name", he said and added however, he fought against this injustice, after a long struggle JDA cancelled allotment of the said plot.
"The allotment made in favour of Gopal Krishan son of Munshi Ram in respect of plot number 267 at New Bahu Fort Housing Colony, Jammu is hereby cancelled and is further ordered that director Land Management shall immediately take possession of the plot number 267", VC JDA's order Secy/JDA/PS/64043, dated 10/11/2015 read.
He said however, despite having sufficient documents to prove his claims some lower rung JDA officials creating hurdle in allotment process in his favour. "Unfortunately, in 2015 a team from JDA expelled me and my family out of our temporary shelter and demolished it", he said and added that at the time government gave them case assistance and some material for making temporary arrangements at our new place. "I have copy receipt issued by SICOP for providing cement bag, with my name however, I lost the proof of the cheque issued in my favour but apart from the this I have my ration card and other relevant documents but no one in JDA office is ready to listen my suffering", he said.
Pardeep said that his wife is suffering with diabetes, and since 2015 he along with his family has been camping at her father's house in same locality.
Vikash Sharma, VC JDA when contacted said that he would take appropriate actions into the matter. "The case is old, but I will check it tomorrow and the appropriate steps will be taken", he added.
