SMC smells ‘multi-crore nasty plan’ in executive committee meeting
Corporators seek New Delhi’s intervention

Early Times Report

Srinagar, Mar 28: Even as the Srinagar Municipal Corporation has called its Executive Committee meeting on March 29, the SMC corporators smell a “multi crore nasty plan” in the development.
As per the order, a copy of which lies with the Early Times, the “The Executive Committee meeting of Srinagar Municipal Corporation has been scheduled on 29th March 2023 at 2:00 P.M.”
The order issued by the Deputy Director Planning states that “The Agenda of the meeting shall include: I) Discussion and finalization of the works Program for the year 2023-2024. 2) Clearing of liabilities including that of IEC Partners etc. 3) Other matters with the permission of Chair. Executive Committee Members may also submit works proposal for action plan ahead of or during the meeting for consideration. All such proposals/estimates should be technically vetted by the works Wing/Drainage wing/City Roads Division Wing to qualify for consideration.” The councilors forum of the SMC smells a rat in the development. Taking to the social media, the president of the Srinagar Corporators Front said half of the members of the executive body were supposed have retired around nine months ago and that fresh elections should have been held by now. “Calling this meeting in so much haste and without retiring the members and holding fresh elections clearly suggests there is a nasty plan behind it and if sources are to be believed then it's just an attempt to clear some huge multi-crore bills. We see contractors hovering in Church lane. I hope New Delhi intervenes and stops this illegality and loot,” the President said in his social media post.
When contacted senior official of the SMC told the Early Times on the condition of anonymity that there were “numerous complaints of misuse of multi crore funds” given by New Delhi and that formal complaints have been filed with Anti Corruption Bureau and other agencies.
He said only a high level probe could clear the picture over allegations and counter allegations as being made inside the SMC.
Pertinently in November 2022, the Bharaitya Janta Party had held a press conference against the SMC accusing the civic body of loot of around Rs 55 crore funds send by Modi government for development of Srinagar.
