Poor seating arrangement at Public Darbar Gund

Several senior officials from various departments had no seats at a Public Darbar held by the district administration Ganderbal at tehsil Gund on Wednesday.

The Darbar was chaired by DDC Ganderbal Hashmat Ali Khan. ADDC Ganderbal, SSP Ganderbal and all district and sectoral officers were present.

Sources said the seating arrangement and tent accommodation at the Darbar was made by the Revenue Department Gund.

Eyewitness said that the officials had to face embarrassment remaining outside the tent for want of seating arrangement.

“There were no proper arrangements made particularly the seating to accommodate the officials from several departments and many had to stand in the sun for hours even during Ramadan fasting,” an official wishing anonymity, said.

Meanwhile a large number of locals from various areas who had come to participate in the Darbar also had to face inconvenience due to non-availability of proper seating arrangements.
