Minister of State for Housing and Urban Development Muhammad Ashraf Mir Monday ordered the suspension of four officials of Srinagar Municipal Corporation (SMC) including two Ward Officers for "allowing Master Plan violations in Srinagar."
"I ordered their suspension during my City tour. They are involved in brazen violations of Srinagar's Master Plan," Mir told Greater Kashmir. Mir along with SMC Commissioner Dr GN Qasba conducted an extensive tour of the City in the wake of heavy snowfall. Mir said an inquiry has been ordered into violations.
