Hakeem Yaseen demands Sub-District status for Khansahib


Srinagar, Mar 27: Underscoring the importance of administrative units in providing hassle free services to the people at their door steps, Chairman PDF and MLA Khansahib Hakeem Mohammad Yaseen Tuesday asked the government to examine the demands of the people for opening new units in their areas on merits.
In a statement, Hakeem Yaseen said that people in some areas of the state feel that they have not been provided their due while opening new administrative units in past urging that it was imperative on the part of Govt. to constitute a new expert committee to hear pleas of such areas regarding opening of new administrative units viz new districts and sub-districts.
He said like people of the Pir panchal region, where people are protesting for district and sub-district status, the people of his Khansahib constituency are also craving for Sub District status.
He said Khansahib is the oldest sub Division comprising a vast area which deserves sub-district status genuinely. He said Government should immediately constitute an high power expert committee to examine all the fresh demands from different areas of the state in this regard.
He said that the proposed committee should present its report in a time bound manner to address all the alleged anomalies existing with respect to administrative units.
He said that the proposed exercise for addressing anomalies with respect to administrative units should be apolitical without any fear or favour but purely on the basis of merits. (KNS)
