Early Times Report

Jammu, Aug 18: Even as the Lieutenant Governor, Manoj Sinha is working hard for deliverance of good governance in Naya Jammu and Kashmir, even the prestigious Prime Minister’s Development Package is facing roadblocks due to allegedly irresponsible behavior of some officials.
Sources said the bills to the tune of crores of rupees are pending in the Civil Secretariat for the execution of various projects under the PMDP.
Sources said the projects were executed through the Kashmir Power Development Corporation Limited or KPDCL. Sources said as the bills were sent to the concerned offices in Civil Secretariat, there started a “blame game” among officials.
“Planning officials said it was the job of the Finance people and the vice verse,” said a source in the Civil Secretariat.
Sources said over the years, the process of bill clearance would be done online and the project executors never needed to visit the Civil Secretariat for release of money.
“But now the people who executed the PMDP with zeal have to do rounds and rounds of offices only to hear a no from the concerned,” said an official on the condition of anonymity.
He said the concerned were acting irresponsibly and thus “trying to sabotage the idea of Naya Jammu and Kashmir, where people are expected to reap benefits of good governance.”
Official sources said such bills have been pending for “such a long time that the same have expired in some cases.”
“Once the bill expires the whole process will need to be started afresh and it will take time. When this is the kind of behavior of the concerned towards the projects under the Prime Minister’s package, the plight of other works can only be imagined,” he said.
When contacted a senior official said there was some “confusion” and that the matter would be resolved soon.
