President’s Rule or Popular Rule, no difference for former MLA Khan Sahib
Continues to enjoy official accommodation at Tulsi Bagh

Early times report

SRINAGAR, Jan 22: The union territory of Jammu & Kashmir is at present under the President’s Rule but it does not make any difference for some of the mainstream politicians who continue to enjoy privileges even during the present dispensation.
Sources told Early Times that a mainstream politician of the Central Kashmir’s Budgam district continues to have the official accommodation in the highly fortified area of Tulsi Bagh in Srinagar. The politician has been a minister in the past as well and is considered to be one of the ‘king makers’ on the political horizon of Jammu & Kashmir.
“Hakeem Mohammad Yasin has represented Khan Sahib Constituency in Budgam district in the past and has been a minister as well. He continues to hold on to his official accommodation at Tulsi Bagh and has not been evicted up to this moment of time. The administration seems to be lenient towards him since no action has been taken against him,” said sources.
Sources said that the accommodation given to the former Member of Legislative Assembly (MLA) is minister’s level accommodation and not a legislator’s one. They said that the former MLA from Khan Sahib has managed to stay put at Tulsi Bagh and so far nobody has touched him so that he could be evicted.
“As soon as the erstwhile state of Jammu & Kashmir was bifurcated into two union territories-Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh all the former legislators were asked to vacate official accommodation. While some of the legislators surrendered the accommodation of their own there were others who were evicted, but in case of Yasin no such thing happened,” said sources.
It would be in place to mention here that Hakeem Mohammad Yasin has been a three time MLA from Khan Sahib. He was elected from this constituency in 2002, 2008 and 2014 and was made Minister for Revenue in the Mufti Mohammad Sayeed led Peoples Democratic Party-Congress government in Jammu & Kashmir in 2002. At present he is the Chairman of Peoples Democratic Front (PDF).
“The former MLA Khan Sahib had recently gone to meet former PDP minister Syed Mohammad Altaf Bukhari. He is set to join the Third Front all set to be launched by Bukhari and some disgruntled leaders of PDP and Congress. Yasin is all set to join ranks with old friends like Ghulam Hassan Mir and Mohammad Dilawar Mir who both are key players in formation of Third Front,” said sources.
Sources said that former legislator from Khan Sahib has always been a ‘king maker’ in Jammu & Kashmir since he has been supporting the successive state governments in the past and reaping benefits in return. He has always been very close to echelons of power both in the state and centre as well.
