RAJOURI, Dec 5: Taking serious cognisance of negligence in a case where a polling station without roof was approved for polling, the district administration Rajouri suspended a Village Level Worker (VLW) and GRS while salary of BDO Khawas was withheld.
The order in this regard reads, "Whereas, on December 3, 2018, a news circulated on social media that the polling station building at Keri Panchayat Kotecharwal Block Khawas is without roof-top and not well prepared for conduct of Panchayat polls.”
“Whereas, all Block Development Officers, were directed to conduct physical verification of all the polling stations in respect of each block for smooth conduct of Panchayat polls. It seems that Block Development Officer, Khawas, VLW Yasar Iqbal and GRS Raiz Hussain did not physically inspect the polling station and did not review the polling station infrastructure/basic minimum facilities at the polling station. In view of this, VLW Yasar Iqbal and GRS Raiz Hussain are hereby placed under suspension with immediate effect,” the order read.
“Further, salary of Block Development Officer, Khawas shall remain withheld till further orders. He shall submit an explanation as to why disciplinary proceedings should not be initiated against him. Assistant Commissioner, Development shall conduct an enquiry into the matter and submit a factual report within a period of one week positively,” the order added.
