SC panel summons DC for ‘neglect’


Tribune News Service

Amritsar, June 5

The Punjab State Scheduled Castes Commission has summoned the Deputy Commissioner, Amritsar, to appear before it in person on June 29 owing to his allegedly careless attitude towards the commission.

Stating this here today, the Chairman of the commission, Rajesh Bagha, said the commission had received a complaint from residents of Madan Lal Dhingra Colony on Ram Tirath Road that people of Kale and Ghanuupur villages, who got the sale certificates of plots during 2000, had not got the possession till date.

Bagha said the commission had sought a report from the competent officer till August 3 last year in the matter, but even after repeated reminders, neither any representative of the Deputy Commissioner appeared before the commission nor any report was submitted, which clearly indicated the less than cautious attitude on the part of the Deputy Commissioner towards the commission.

The Chairman also divulged that the next hearing with regard to this complaint had been scheduled for June 29.

The commission had directed the Divisional Commissioner, Jalandhar, to ensure the compliance with the orders of the commission by the Amritsar Deputy Commissioner.
