Srinagar: Doctors Association Kashmir (DAK) today questioned government on return of Dr Saleem ur Rehman and posting him as Director State AIDS Control Society despite his involvement in serious corruption charges.
President DAK Dr Nisar ul Hassan said that return of corrupt official has exposed government and its slogan of eradicating the menace of corruption.
On one hand government claims to weed out corruption and show door to corrupt officials, on the other hand tainted officials are called back.
There is a deep rooted nexus between corrupt officials and some unseen forces and corruption seems to be a state backed phenomenon.
Corruption is a political concession in Kashmir and is promoted at highest level.
It is a conspiracy in Kashmir where even loyalties are bought.
Corruption has not only destroyed our institutions but has eroded our culture and tradition.
The virus of corruption has spread the length and breadth of valley and the bug has enslaved our conscience.
