'MCC an excuse for misgovernance in J&K'

Legislator Rasheed to Sinha-led delegation: “Plebiscite only way to resolve Kashmir dispute"

The Awami Ittehad Party (AIP) president Er Rasheed has sought immediate redressal of burning issues pertaining to common masses.

“The so-called model code of conduct (MCC) has become an excuse and silly argument to those officers who don’t want to deliver and treat themselves beyond accountability,” a spokesman of the AIP, in a statement today, quoted Er Rasheed as having said while interacting with people during his day-long visit to Kupwara constituency.

Er Rasheed said: “Be it power crises or restoration of drinking water supply and other basic amenities, most of the officers have just one line answer that there is a model code of conduct in place. It is disgusting and shameful that the damaged transformers are lying in PDD workshops since months and concerned authorities don’t pay any heed towards genuine grievances of masses”.

He said the functioning of education, health and other sectors has been kept hostage to the model code of conduct. While there is no model or moral code of conduct for the corrupt Babus, even routine files of the common man are being thrown into dustbin with the excuse that there is a model code of conduct in place.

Er Rasheed urged the governor to take serious note of sufferings of masses and ensure that all essential services run without any interruptions and excuses.
