PAMPORE: Executive Officer (EO) Municipal Committee Pampore has been attached after he was found absent from Town Hall Pampore where Minister of State for Forest, Environment, Animal, Sheep Husbandry, Fisheries and Cooperatives, Mir Zahoor Ahmad held a workers meet on Thursday.
Zahoor told Kashmir Reader that the Executive Officer was informed in advance about the meeting and asked to keep the town hall clean. “Neither the town Hall was cleaned nor the EO was found during the meet,” Zahoor said. “This was not going to be tolerated.”
He said the matter was forwarded to Director Urban Local Bodies who immediately attached the officer soon after the meeting.
He added that the employees were also not present in the beginning of the program.
The attached Executive Officer, however, told Kashmir Reader that he was in a meeting at Pulwama where he was called to attend Road Safety Meeting chaired by deputy commissioner, and joined the town hall meeting afterwards.
“I could not have send anybody else to attend the Road safety meeting where the presence of every one was mandatory,” he said, adding that he managed to attend both meetings but was astonished to know about his attachment.
He added that he had already made the arrangements and seating arrangement was kept for more than 150 persons in the town hall.
