“Take action against the erring officials or face stir”
SRINAGAR: Doctors Association of Kashmir (DAK) today expressed strong resentment against the barburous assault on Block Medical Officer Larnoo Dr Abid Bashir by ACR Anantnag Syed Shabir and SDM Kokernag Mr Rouf Rehman in front of MLA Kokernag during administrative function at Tehsil Office Kokernag yesterday. These acts of hooliganism, rowdiness by low rung Revenue Officials can’t be tolerated by us any more.
Dr Suhail Naik President DAK while condemning the bizarre, abnormally abnormal behaviour of revenue officials ,demanded for stringent departmental disciplinary action under CSR rules by the Govt.
The said ACR has manhandled our esteemed doctor and hurled choicest abuses which in way is acceptable and violates all Civil Services Rules. Pertinently the said SDM has a history of unleashing bureaucratic terror and in recent past had humiliated an esteemed teacher also in the most gruesome way, which was collectively condemned by whole society.
If current dispensation pampers & promote such ill mannered officers, then government as a institution will loose its reverence of making system public & employee friendly.
These acts of rowdiness by said officials have created panic in doctors fraternity and is one of the major reason that doctors in large numbers are leaving this state. Further some officials in the hierarchy are becoming the “patients of power arrogance” and are treating employees ànd common people as bonded labourers, Dr Naik added
General Secretary DAK, Dr Owais H Dar said that every human has a respect and dignity irrespective of their profession, cadre and rank and it is inhuman and unjustified that officer will loose his temper while dealing with the administrative functions which are against the moral ethics and human values which will not be tolerated at any cost.
Doctors across valley have been working day in and day out for serving the needy patients and when it comes to administration running of health institutes is more cumbersome and challenging in conflict hit zone than other administrative departments. Such behaviour shown with our administrator is no less than terrorising the officer
DAK is worried about the silence of Hon’ble Minister for Health & Medical Education Dr Divender Kumar Manyal &Director General Health Services, Kashmir Dr Saleem ur Rehman about this grave issue when every body across the department has condemned this idiotic and senseless act. DAK stresses both the minister & Director General Health to break silence and act strongly against this inhuman act by taking this matter with concerned authorities The shameful incident is not humiliation for the said doctor only but to the whole department and by remaining silent it amounts to justifying the humiliation & thrashing of our officer.
DAK warns the Govt. to act upon the erring officials and strict disciplinary action be taken under rules otherwise a state wide agitation will be launched whose onus will lie on the Govt. exclusively.
