GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, May 26: A delegation of residents of Seer Hamdan village of famous tourist resort Pahalgam Saturday met the Chief Minister Omar Abdullah and demanded that area should be brought under the Panchayat Raj.
The village is presently under the Municipal Committee and according to the delegation, the CM assured it to take steps for de-notifying the village soon.
According to revenue records, Seer Hamdan is having 13 Wards with a population of 8,000 and 73 percent population live under the BPL category. The delegation said that the area has been notified as Municipal Committee in July 2006.
“We have been demanding that Seer Hamdan should be de-notified as there has been no development work since the Municipal Committee was created. We apprised the CM that instead of any progress, we have been deprived of the benefits particularly emanating from MGNREGA and other schemes. We made a fervent appeal to the CM to develop the area as per the Urban Development norms and schemes,” the delegation said.
The residents also told the CM that they are not in position to pay taxes as most of the people work as labourers. “The CM assured us that steps to de-notify the area would be taken soon,” it said.
The delegation was led by Altaf Ahmad Kaloo. Others who were present on the occasion included Abdul Razak Bhat, Moulvi Abdul Rashid and Ali Muhammad Dar.
