Srinagar: Orders issued by Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti at her first “public outreach” programme, a series of camps held in different districts nine months ago, have not been followed up in most cases. According to official documents accessed by Kashmir Reader, of the 180 “decisions” taken by the chief minister at her public camp in Pulwama, only 61 have been implemented so far.
The documents say that 13 of the 180 decisions have been only “partially” implemented, 79 are “in progress”, and 22 have been “dropped”.
The documents also state that among the 32 decisions taken for upgradation/creation of staff, only 19 have been submitted to government for further process.
In September last year, public grievance redress camps were organised in different districts as part of the chief minister’s public outreach programme. At the camp in Pulwama, where she came first, she heard people in a face-to-face interaction and in many cases issued on-spot directions for immediate redress of their problems.
During her visit, the chief minister stressed on developing existing infrastructure and announced new developmental initiatives.
A break-up of the decisions taken by the chief minister at the Pulwama camp shows that the major decisions related to three departments: Roads & Buildings (R&B), Health, and Power.
A total of 33 decisions related to the R&B department were taken by the chief minister. So far, only 8 have been implemented.
In the health sector, the official documents say that a total of 30 decisions were made, of which 12 have been implemented so far.
In decisions related to the Power department, of the total of 12 directions issued, only 5 have been implemented.
