RAJOURI: District Development Commissioner Mohammad Aijaz Asad Friday ordered suspension of an Executive Officer, attachment of a Block Development Officer and withheld salaries of 30 officials of health department, even as he sought explanation from CMO, BMO Nowshera, Sunderbani, Darhal, Kalakote and Manjakote for their failure to enforce discipline and punctuality of officials in health institutions under their control.
The Executive Officer Municipality Sunderbani was suspended for remaining absent in a meeting chaired by DDC to review the arrangements for Budha Amarnath Yatra.
The action against the officer was taken for leaving the station, despite explicit directions from district administration against leaving the station without prior permission.
The DDC also ordered attachment of BDO Darhal in view of complaints of delay in MGNREGA payments against him during a public meeting on July 19, 2018.
