Haji Mohammad Haneefa Jan Former CEC and Councilor Baroo
Former Chief Executive Councilor LAHDC Kargil and Councilor Baroo, Haji Mohammad LAHDC Kargil Haneefa Jan has expressed concern over utilizing the funds which were meant for Water Supply Scheme under AMRUT in a hasty way without formulating a better and feasible plan to meet the aspiration of the citizens of Kargil in providing them uninterrupted and clean water supply throughout the year.
Haji Mohammad Haneefa Jan has said that as per realiable sources he has
received information that the present council is working on the existing scheme of water supply under already sanctioned project component of AMRUT for providing of drinking water to areas of Kargil Town instead of working on new and practically feasible water supply scheme.
He said that on the behest of the higher authorities, certain section of the town is exclusively being benefitted and inspite of exploring the requirements of the people hasty decisions are being taken to expend the funds provided under AMRUT scheme.
Terming the proposed Water Supply Scheme as already failure, Haneefa Jan said that it has not fulfilled the needs of the citizens as the source of water from river Wakha always remains under flood threat during summer and several time floods had caused damage to it and water always remains muddy and totally unfit for drinking purpose.
He said that most part of the Town settled at higher sides are not being able to provide water through proposed scheme depriving these inhabitants of the benefits of this scheme. Jan said that to provide water to peoples settled at higher places of the town, water needs to be lifted again, which
is not understandable as the work could have been easy and feasible by lifting water directly from river Suru.
Meanwhile in this regards he has written to Deputy Chief Minister Dr. Nirmal Singh who holds the charge of Housing and Urban Development
Department for his interfere in the matter personally so that maximum people get the benefit as such schemes are not frequently sanctioned.
