Srinagar, June 20: Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Movement (JKPM) on Friday has expressed anguish over the administration order whereby various departments have been ordered to continue functioning from Jammu secretariat.
In a press release, JKPM Vice President Advocate Syed Iqbal Tahir has termed the government decision of creating two functioning secretariats instead of full Darbar Move from Jammu to Srinagar an illogical move. He said that the administration has not cited any convincing reason behind this order.
“On the account of Covid-19 situation, the annual Darbar Move had already been delayed. Now retaining half of the administrative departments in Jammu civil secretariat and shifting few departments to Srinagar capital is bound to create huge inconvenience for the people from Kashmir. This is unfair and unjust” Iqbal Tahir said.
JKPM urges the government to shift all secretariat departments from Jammu to Srinagar to keep up with the tradition of annual Darbar Move in letter and spirit.
