HC stays eviction of politicians from govt flats
Srinagar, May 26: The High Court Wednesday ordered status quo regarding possession of government flats by several politicians at Housing Colony Pulwama allotted to them during the Peoples Democratic Party rule.
These politicians belonging to different parties have filed petition through counsel Advocate Syed Reyaz Khawar seeking stay on their ‘forcible eviction’ allegedly by the DDC Pulwama.
They include, PDP MLA Muhammad Khalil Band, Congress activist Ghulam Nabi Patel, the District President, Shopian CPI (M) Abdul Khaliq Rather, Zonal President, PDP Pulwama Muhammad Subhan Bhat, Municipal Councillor, PDP Manzoor Ahmad.
The petitioners said they were authorised occupant of the accommodation. “No eviction notice/communication has been sent to them by the district administration for the eviction purposes,” the said through their petition.
They alleged that the Principal Secretary GAD, the DDC Pulwama and Executive Engineer (R&B) Pulwama, who are respondents in the case, were forcing them to leave the accommodation. “The action of the respondents is violation of Article 14, 21 and principles of natural justice,” petitioners said, adding that the action taken against them was based on malafide, ill will extraneous consideration, arbitrariness and political vendetta.
Advocate Khawar submitted before the court that any eviction order or notice issued by the respondents against his clients should be quashed.
After hearing arguments, Justice Mansoor Mir stayed the forcible eviction and directed the respondents to file their objections within four weeks.
