ANANTNAG, Feb 6: An officer of Food, Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs department was removed days after he attempted to stop black marketing of Kerosene oil in Pahalgam Tehsil circle of South Kashmir's Anantnag district.
Abbas Ahmad Zargar, Tehsil Supplies Officer Pahalgam was removed and attached with the office of Assistant Director Food, Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs Department Anantnag. The order in this regard was issued by Joint Director Food, Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs Department on 3rd of February; however the order issued by the department didn't mention anywhere that it had received any complaint against him.
Director Food, Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs told Early Times that it was just a administrative matter and the officer wasn't facing any enquiry. "We don't have any complaint against him. It is just an administrative matter," he said.
However, Joint Director Food, Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs department said that a complaint against the officer has been filled in the Commissioner Secretary's office on the basis of which he was removed.
Assistant Director Food, Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs department Anantnag Manzoor Ahmad expressed ignorance about the attachment of the officer. "I don't know why he has been attached but all I know he that he is an honest and upright officer," he said.
Mohmmad Abbas Zargar, who was posted as TSO Pahalgam few months ago, claimed that kerosene oil dealers lobbied for his transfer in civil secretariat Jammu.
"Deputy Commissioner Anantnag held an Awami Darbar few weeks ago in Aishmuqam wherein a group of people from Grend village complained that they haven't received kerosene oil. I was directed by the SDM Pahalgam to look into the issue. I conveyed to kerosene oil dealers to distribute kerosene oil transparently," he said.
Zargar said he wrote to Assistant Director Anantnag and requested him to direct all the kerosene oil dealers to stock supplies during daytime in presence of Tehsil circle officers so that black marketing is stopped once for all.
"My letter to AD Shab offended kerosene oil dealers who later threatened me and told me that they will get me transferred to some other place within a week and surprisingly they did it within nine days," he said, adding that the department should have probed the allegations if any before issuing order.
"It signaled that kerosene oil mafia is ruling the department," he said and sought the intervention of Chief Secretary of Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir.
Important to mention here, Anantnag district of Jammu and Kashmir Three lakh sixty thousand liters of kerosene oil (360000) each month for distribution among consumers however most of the people in far off as well as in town areas complaint of not having received the supply.
