SRINAGAR: The Government today ordered the attachment of Executive Engineer PHE, Division Poonch with Deputy Commissioner, Poonch till further orders.
The order has been issued following act of non-compliance of the directions of Minister for PHE, Irrigation and Flood Control, Sukhnanan Kumar.
The Charge of the Executive Engineer PHE Division Poonch shall be held by the Executive Engineer I&FC Poonch, an official spokesman said.
Meanwhile, taking a serious note of the fake engagement of 260 unpaid need based causal labourers in the PHE Mechanical Division North, Sopore, the Minister has ordered the suspension of the then concerned Executive Engineer.
During a preliminary inquiry it came to fore that the Executive Engineer had prepared a list of 260 workers and furnished the same to Superintending Engineer, PHE Mechanical North and when the latter sought clarification as to why in January 2014, when the physical verification of the need based / causal workers was conducted, these 260 workers were not shown to which the Executive Engineer did not give any reply. This was viewed seriously by the Minister who ordered action against delinquent Xen.
