Karra accuses NC leaders of pilfering, politicizing flood relief

Srinagar: Accusing National Conference (NC) leaders of blocking and hijacking the relief material meant for the flood victims, senior PDP leader and Member Parliament Tariq Hameed Karra today said that instead of reaching out to the needy, the ruling party is trying to cash-on the tragedy by politicizing the relief distribution amid grave tragedy that has befallen Kashmir.
“Complaints are pouring in from the flood-affected areas that surfacing from hibernation, NC leaders have started hijacking the relief material from the storage points at the Srinagar Airport, EDI Building Pampore, Nigeen Club and district headquarters at Budgam, Pulwama and Anantnag, and are routing the same to their relatives and party workers instead of the deserving people affected by the floods,” he said.
“There are reports that NC leaders are not only pillaging the relief material coming through official channels, but are even snatching the relief material raised by various NGOs and civil society groups,” he said and urged the administration to prevent selective distribution of the relief by NC cadres.
Karra said as per media reports while the son of a senior minister is pirating the relief material in Budgam, a NC legislator from Srinagar recently visited the relief distribution point at EDI Building Pampore and walked away with a major chunk of the relief material meant for the flood-sufferers. “There are reports that bulk of the relief material has been dumped at the official residence of the Chief Minister at Gupkar Road wherefrom it is being transported to the homes of NC leaders during night,” he said.
