Kupwara: The residents of Ramhall area in north Kashmir’s Kupwara district have demanded working of R&B’s Assistant Executive Engineer office in their area.

The residents said that the office was working in the area till early nineties but later the office started to work at Handwara. The residents said that they have approached the concerned officials numerous times with regard to shifting the office to its original place but to no avail.

“We are unable to figure out why we are being deprived of our rights. We want to ask authorities why the AEE office is functioning at Handwara,” Idrees a local youth, told Greater Kashmir. “The R&B division office is already stationed at Handwara and keeping Ramhall’s AEE office there is in no means helpful for the people,” he added. The youth of the area said that working at the AEE office at Ramhall would certainly increase the avenues to earn livelihood.

Block Development Council Chairman Ramhall Sheikh Yasin told Greater Kashmir that one could understand working of the office at Handwara due to the tense situation across Kashmir in early nineties “but now when situation happens to be normal, the working of AEE office at Handwara was beyond the imagination of common people,” he said. “I have brought this issue into the notice of Deputy Commissioner Kupwara Sagar Dattatary, he has assured me of shifting the office to its original place within a couple of days," DDC Chairman added.
