HWO alleges disparity in compensation to flood-hit families

Srinagar: Hussaini Welfare Organization, a non-governmental organization (NGO) Sunday alleged disparity in disbursement of compensation to hundreds of flood affected families of Hassanabad and Saida Kadal localities here.
In a statement issued here Sunday, HWO, executive President, Javed Hussain Shirazi said that hundreds of families of Hassanabad and Saida Kadal were affected by the devastative floods of September. He said on the instructions of the administration, revenue officials, including the Patwaris concerned assessed the damage and recommended compensation to the affected families.
“However, the engineer discriminated with the flood sufferers. He recommended a compensation of Rs 3800 to most of the flood hit families. While as, the rich and influential were given a compensation of Rs 12000 and Rs 75,000 respectively. This is injustice with those families, who have no influence in the corridors of power,” Shirazi said.
He urged the Deputy Commissioner (DC) Srinagar, Farooq Ahmad Shah to take notice of the blatant misuse of power and the disparity met with the deserving families.
