SRINAGAR — The post of Assistant Executive Engineer has been lying vacant for the last four months in PHE Sub-Division Pulwama, although the department has implemented the appointment of a new engineer under an order but the engineer has not yet been charged.
According to the news agency CNS, PHE Sub-Division Pulwama has been missing the chair of Assistant Executive Engineer for the last four months. Even though the Central government has launched a tap campaign for every house under Jal Jeevan Mission, however, people are still facing a shortage of drinking water in this division.
Local sources said that many engineers have been sitting on the chairs in PHE Division Pulwama for years and they have approved it through collusion with the contractors. A wide series of looting of the government treasury has continued.
Sources said that the charge of the Assistant Executive Engineer in PHE Sub-Division Pulwama is still under Sub-Division Tahab and it is also worth mentioning that in Sub-Division Tahab allegations of massive rigging in the Jal Jeevan Mission are coming to light.
Reliable sources said that the appointment of Assistant Executive Engineer in PHE Sub-Division Pulwama is being kept pending under a well-thought-out plan as few contractors are engaged in colluding with engineers to siphon off crores of rupees from the government exchequer.
Meanwhile, government investigation agencies are unable to draw any attention to it. Sources further said that government rules and regulations have also been disregarded in the estimated funds for the completion of the JJM project.
The local people have also demanded a high-level investigation by the CBI into the irregularities in the Pulwama division.
