Seek CM’s Intervention
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Jan 6: Several officials of the rank of Under Secretary, Deputy Secretary and Additional Secretary posted in civil secretariat have alleged that State Government has left them high and dry by not providing them accommodation in winter capital.
A group of officials told Greater Kashmir over phone that they are facing tough time in winter capital due to absence of government accommodation as 40- 50 percent of their salary goes alone on paying the rent of hotels where they are staying.
“While the relatives of ministers and political parties are occupying government accommodation at prime locations in Jammu, senior officials like us are facing numerous problem in absence of this facility,” the officials said.
“Even, junior most clerks posted in our departments have been provided government accommodation,” they added.
According to the officials, they have been repeatedly approaching higher- ups in Civil Secretariat to get their grievance redressed, but of no avail.
“We appeal Chief Minister Omar Abdullah to intervene in the matter,” they demanded.
The officers said that their families are also suffering due to non-availability of accomodation in Jammu.
"Not only us but our families too are suffering for want of accomodation. What is the fun to shift us to Jammu when there is no space for us to live in," they asked.
