The Government Thursday appointed Mufti Tassaduq Hussain as the Coordinator of Chief Minister’s Grievance Cell.
An order to this effect was issued by the General Administration Department here today.
Mufti Tassaduq, as per the order, shall not draw any salary or perks and his job would purely be on honourary basis.
As per the order, Mufti Tassaduq, besides heading the Grievance Cell would also oversee the outcome and resolution of specific grievances and complaints registered with the Cell.
Pertinently, opposition National Conference had been critical of any such move.
NC had termed the appointment of Tassaduq Mufti as a laughable development. NC had said that the move will proved beyond any doubt the existence of two parallel power centers in the PDP and consequently the State Government.
NC said Tassaduq’s appointment was a backdoor anointment of a runaway candidate from the Anantnag by-poll who is being foisted on the people of the State by the Mufti family.
“His appointment is more of an anointment from the backdoor when his party failed to contest an election in Anantnag and goes on to prove how Mehbooba Mufti’s own family has lost faith in her and has now deputed Tassaduq Mufti to be a parallel power center in a Government which has reduced itself to a big, fat joke.
