JKNPP protests outside residence of Secy Estates Deptt
BJP-Bureaucrat nexus treating govt properties as their fathers’ fiefdom: Harsh
11/28/2021 10:20:12 PM


JAMMU, Nov 28: Alleging unauthorized occupation of govt bungalows by the workers of BJP and its allied parties to the exclusion of all other political parties, scores of Panther activists led by Harsh Dev Singh, Chairman-JKNPP staged a thunderous protest outside the residence of Secretary Estates at Canal road, Jammu today.
While raising anti-BJP and anti-Estates Deptt slogans, the infuriated protesters sought immediate eviction of all unauthorized BJP and JKAP leaders from govt and Ministerial bungalows illegally occupied by them in collusion with corrupt officers of J&K. They torched the effigies of Estates Deptt, and BJP for looting the tax payers’ money in connivance. The NPP workers sought immediate implementation of High Court orders on eviction of illegal occupants and recovery of penal rent from them as often parroted by the govt.
Addressing the media, Harsh Dev Singh said that it was shocking to note that BJP leaders who were not holding any position in government and fell in common man’s category were occupying not only ‘Special Type’, ‘A-type’ Estates mansions but many of them were still living in Ministerial Bungalows. And while the opposition leaders including ex-Ministers and heads of recognized political parties were hounded out of Estates quarters’ years back through police force. He said BJP and JKAP workers were allowed to retain the same thereby providing the most glaring example of present govt’s dictatorial and autocratic policies besides being indicative of patronized corruption in BJP rule.
He said that a reply received by him in response to RTI revealed that several BJP workers have been allotted Estates Bungalows which continue to be retained by them in violation of all norms and stipulated procedures. It was further shocking to note that the concerned authorities had allowed the BJP leaders to retain the said Estates bungalows despite categorical orders of their eviction issued repeatedly by the High Court. Not only that the Apni Party and Peoples Conference had been conferred undue favours by allotting govt accommodation for their political offices by defying the orders of the High Court.
Not only the Estates Bungalows but the security vehicles and PSOs were also being allotted purely on political considerations, said Singh.
Seeking a high level probe preferably through CBI into the whole gamut of illegal allotments of govt bungalows and huge encroachments of govt lands and properties by BJP leaders, Singh called for punitive action against the officers who were acting more as BJP servants than public servants. He said that non-adherence to any set of norms and differential treatment of political parties by abusing of public exchequer and conferring benefits upon favourites was not only a crime but a financial scam which needed due attention of the Lt Governor and Chief Secretary of the UT.
Prominent among those who spoke on the occasion included Rajesh Padgotra, Gagan Pratap Singh, Parshotam Parihar, Surinder Chauhan, Yash Pal Sharma, Mohinder Singh Mankotia and Ram Pal Sharma besides others.
