PULWAMA — Deputy Commissioner (DC) Pulwama Baseer-Ul-Haq Choudhary suspended Principal Polytechnic College Awantipora, Mahmood Ahmad Khan for failing to furnish the requisite information with respect to activities undertaken and deliverables achieved during the preparatory phase of JAN ABHIYAN.
The suspension order issued here reads that as per the government orders issued for timely conduct of the Back to Village Phase Fourth (B2V4) Programme, all sectors have been directed to achieve the fixed deliverables during the JAN ABHIYAN phase with effect from October 15 to 26, it is mandatory to furnish Daily Progress Report with respect to the deliverables achieved vis-à-vis set targets and cumulative figures, for onward submission to the Government of J&K.
It further reads that Principal Polytechnic College Awantipora Pulwama has miserably failed in furnishing the requisite information with respect to activities undertaken and deliverables achieved during the preparatory phase of JAN ABHIYAN besides it is also found that his progress has remained quite dismal and he has taken this important program of the Government of J&K in a very casual manner.
The suspension order states that neither any deliverables have been achieved by the said Institution (Polytechnic College Awantipora) nor has any information been submitted to Deputy Commissioner’s Office Pulwama in this regard, which has unnecessarily hampered the progress of this prestigious program of the government.
Moreover, it states that on October 21, a phone call was made by Chief Planning Officer Pulwama to the said Principal seeking the requisite information for compilation and onward submission to higher-ups but the said officer hardly bothered to respond properly and in fact, outrightly denied the submission of B2V4 information to this office.
“Such lackadaisical attitude displayed by Principal Polytechnic College Pulwama Awantipora speaks volumes on his part and constitutes dereliction of duties and official misconduct which attracts disciplinary action. Therefore, pending an inquiry into his conduct, Mahmood Ahmad Khan, Principal Polytechnic College Awantipora Pulwama, is hereby placed under suspension with immediate effect and is attached with the office of Assistant Commissioner Revenue Pulwama till further orders,” states the order issued by District Development Commissioner, Pulwama.
