Rafiabad, Aug 11 (GNS) : The residents of Watergam Rafiabad in north Kashmir’s Baramulla are up in arms against the authorities for failing to make the tehsil office functional.
According to locals the concerned Tehsildar was transferred three month ago and the authorities have failed to send his replacement.
In absence of the tehsildar concerned the locals and the people coming from different areas of Rafiabad belt return their homes to dis-made.
The people of several villages including Watergam, Behrampora, Marazigund, Aaachabal,Lohrihom Ganipora etc that fall under the catchment area of tehsil Watergam are facing severe inconvenience in absence of the executive magistrate first class who besides being drawing an disbursing officer is required to attest essential documents like state subject, land notations and other revenue deeds.
“We have been suffering for long in absence of executive magistrate here. For some simple application we have to travel from far off places to tehsil office everyday and in absence of tehsildar concerned we return to our homes with deep disappointment protestors told GNS.
A visitor from Behrampora Abdul Hameed told GNS “I have been coming here daily for the last one month to complete formalities for my children’s state subject, but my efforts are proving fruitless as there is no tehsildar to look into the cases.”
Meanwhile despite repeated attempts Deputy Commissioner Baramulla Dr Nasir Ahmed Naqash was not available for commits.(GNS)
