Locals of the area including YNC Provincial President, Ajaz Jan said that authorities are badly failing to preserve environment with rampant deforestation going on across state and wide level use of poly-bags against norms but officers have taken this step to harass poor villagers and to get their names in papers.
Ajaz Jan also asked district administration officers to take up this matter with senior authorities and underlined need to introspect this decision.
Both DDC Poonch and SSP Poonch assured the visiting delegation to discuss the matter with senior authorities.
