Early Times Report

Jammu, Oct 22: No matter whether Abdullahs’ are part of the ruling party or opposition, they always remain powerful, to substantiate the satire, Dr Farooq Abdullah’s Bathindi mansion built on state land years back is mocking at the system.
However, some whistle-blowers raised alarm against the encroachment of state land in Bathindi but due to lackadaisical approach by bureaucracy and law enforcing agencies, a large number of palatial houses have come up over the area.
“The Revenue Department has allegedly tampered the land records to facilitate encroachment of state land here by none other than former Chief Minister and Union Minister and sitting MP Dr Farooq Abdullah. I had filed a complaint with the Prime Minister’s Office alleging that the Revenue Department has shown in its records that the land on which Abdullah's mansion stands at Bathindi, Jammu is a private land. But the land in question actually belongs to the state”, said Mohd Sadiq. However, taking cognizance of his complaint which was filed through an online grievance cell of the Prime Minister’s Office, the Ministry of Home Affairs has asked the then Chief Secretary of Jammu and Kashmir to take appropriate action. “Dr. Farooq Abdullah mansion came up over a piece of five kanals under khasra no.6 of village Bathindi in Jammu district,” the complainant alleged in his application.
He alleged that the record was tampered with in 1998 to save the skin of Farooq Abdullah. “In the 1998 assembly session, one member raised the issue in the House on this matter. Thereafter, Dr. Farooq Abdullah got the registry of khasra no. 21 of the same village were executed. Registry was manipulated and executed by an unknown person because owner of khasra no.21, Din Mohammad, has denied to have sold any land to Dr. Farooq Abdullah,” the complainant alleged in his application. He added that the khasra number mentioned in the registry is actually far away from the mansion of Dr Abdullah.
In his property statement, Dr Abdullah had mentioned that he had purchased 3 kanals of land situated at Bathindi from Choudhary Din Mohammad. But when contacted, Din Mohammad denied that he hadn't sold any land to Dr Abdullah. Meanwhile, the PMO grievances cell has asked the Chief Secretary to take appropriate action in the matter.
“Kindly find enclosed herewith a copy of the online grievances registration no. MINHA/E/2016/04496 dated 16/9/2016 received from Mohd Sadiq Jammu”, the communiqué from the PMO to the then Chief Secretary J&K reads.
“I received a letter from JK Grievances Cell, wherein I was asked to appear before the competent, authority, when I appeared, the officer dealing the issues discouraged me and forced not to pursue the matter”, he said, adding that under Lt. Guv Manoj Sinha’s leadership he hopes the blunders of past would be rectified and administration would take action against the illegal mansion of Dr Farooq Abdullah’s and others in the area.
