Develop positive attitude towards public: Mian Altaf to officials
GK NEWS NETWORK
Islamabad (Anantnag), July 18: Forest and Environment Minister Mian Altaf Ahmad on Monday asked the officials to develop positive attitude vis-à-vis public.
“Consumers flood Secretariat with applications for sanction of timber. The trend reflects insensitive attitude on the part of officials at ground level. Why should an applicant come to me for a petty work like sanction of timber” the Minister said after inaugurating a newly constructed Divisional Forest Office (DFO) building here in south Kashmir.
He asked the officials to do introspection and develop positive attitude vis-a-vis public.
The Minister also reviewed timber supply position with the officers of four forest divisions viz Islamabad (Anantnag), Shopian, Kuglam and Leder.
“The Minister called for strenuous efforts to ensure hassle free distribution of timber among the consumers. He took strong notice of tardy progress in the timber supply position and asked the officers to start timber supply forthwith.”
Altaf asked SFC and Forest authorities to complete extraction targets expeditiously so that timber distribution does not face any interruption.
He directed SFC officials to expedite process of timber dumping in sale depots saying Government’s commitment to keep timber readily available for the consumers at their doorsteps has to be honored. He asked them to accord priority to the sale depots and auction later on.
The Minister asked the officers to make judicious use of CAMPA funds and completion of the projects within stipulated time frame, adding the assets so created must be perceptible on ground.
Commissioner Secretary Forest Shantmanu, Principal Chief Conservator Forest, R D Tiwari, Chief Conservator of Forest Manzoor Ahmad, Director Soil Conservation M J Sharma, Director Forest Protection Vinod Ranjan, Additional DC, Nisar Ahmad and other senior officers of Forest Department were present in the meeting.
