MCC an excuse to avoid redressal of burning issues: Er Rasheed
Kupwara: Awami Itihad Party President, Er Rasheed has alleged that the “so called model code of conduct has become an excuse and silly argument to those officers who don’t want to deliver and treat themselves beyond accountability”.
Rasheed, who is the party’s candidate for the Baramulla Lok Sabha seat, asked the governor led state administration “not to forget its duties towards common masses” and has sought “immediate redressal of burning issues pertaining to common masses”.
Interacting with people during his day long visit in Kupwara Constituency, 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 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.
Rasheed said that functioning of education, health and other prestigious sectors “has been kept hostage to the model code of conduct”.
He said the model code of conduct was cited as an excuse, Rasheed said that “there is no model or moral code of conduct for the corrupt babus and even routine files of common man are being thrown to dustbin with the excuse that there is model code of conduct in place.” Rasheed urged the governor to take “serious note of sufferings of masses and ensure that all essential services run without any interruptions and excuses”.
