Dr Shazad Ahmed Malik, Chairman of the BADC and former Vice Chancellor expressing his disappointment over the attitude of the district administration of Poonch in their dealing with illegal occupants demanded that immediate legal action should be initiated against all occupants of government accommodation in the district.

Dr Shazad alleged that several politicians and former legislatures are illegally occupying government accommodation including government guest houses, tourist reception centers, Dak Bugalows and even government employees Quarters without any authority.

He said many of these illegal occupants even do not pay any rent for the accommodation being used by them.

He asked the Deputy Commissioner Poonch to publish the list of all illegal encroachers on the official website of District Poonch and also in newspaper and take all legal means to evict them including recovering all the dues from them.

He informed that some former legislatures are even using illegally occupied govt accomodation as their party office.

The BADC Chairman said that real deserving government officers do not get the government accommodation in Poonch town and Mendhar whereas these politicians have occupied the government building without any allotment and without any fear of law.

He also stated that if the district administration Poonch does’nt get the government buildings vacated from these politicians then his organization may move to court of law to ensure that loss to state exchequer is not continued .
