Elections to Kashmir Medical Representatives' Association (KMRA) are nowhere in sight, even as deadline set by Jammu and Kashmir High Court has exceeded by six weeks.
On September 11 last year, a division bench of the high court had directed that election should be "positively completed" within three months.
While disposing of an appeal with the consent of the parties, a division of the court had appointed Registrar Trade Union Srinagar as an Observer for conduct of elections to the executive body of the Kashmir Medical Representatives Association.
The court had asked Registrar Trade Union to carry out exercise of verification of membership within a period of one month from 11 September 2018 and directed Sajad Ahmad Zaz and others, appellants, to ensure that all necessary records were made available to the observer forthwith to undertake such exercise.
"The Association shall ensure that elections are conducted within a period of one month after the finalization of the membership and the electoral rolls list by the Observer," the court had said, adding, "The entire process of the elections shall be conducted in the presence of the Registrar Trade Union, Srinagar, and positively completed within a period of three months in all from the date of this order (September 11).
"There has been lot of delay and elections have not been conducted despite remainders from time-to-time reminders to the Registrar Trade Union," a group of aggrieved persons said.
