Srinagar, May 27 (KNO): After repeated allegations by the doctors about harassment and misbehavior by the police men on ground, the J&K government Wednesday formulated a strategy to ensure all the officials associated with the essential services including health officials are facilitated on roads especially at check points and barricades. Official sources told news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO), that in this regard, a crucial meeting was held under the chairmanship of Deputy Commissioner Srinagar Dr Shahid Iqbal Choudhay where a Coordination Committee was constituted for immediate redressal of grievances during travel on roads. Officers from essential services departments including from the Health department and those from the police department attended the meeting, officials said. “Extensive discussions were held in the meeting on issues surrounding movement of essential services officials and possible solutions to them in order that movement of the said officials can be further facilitated during the ongoing restrictions,” officials told KNO. SSP Srinagar Dr Haseeb Mughal along with SP East Sheena Nabi and SP South Sajad Shah were also present in the meeting. Dr Haseeb Mughal while speaking on the occasion said that besides ensuring enforcement of restrictions and prevention of movement that is prohibited the police is also ensuring that movement of all essential services officials is facilitated. He said that being the most critical in the current times the health department is being prioritised among the essential services departments as far as facilitation of movement is concerned. He said movement of all officials and staff of the health department is being allowed without movement pass and will continue to be across the district. He said the two recent incidents wherein it was alleged that health officials were not allowed movement should be treated as aberrations assuring that all such instances are taken a serious note of and corrected wherever it is found to be genuine and required. Dr Shahid while speaking on the occasion said the district administration is available round-the-clock to redress all issues and concerns—(KNO)
