SRINAGAR — Despite clear and repeated directions from Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha, Tehsildars and other Revenue officials are seen harassing only poor and common people across Kashmir Valley and the influential land grabbers are still enjoying their approach and special treatment from concerned officers.

As per the reports of the news agency CNS, officials while using full media coverage were seen demolishing sheds and walls of the common man but on the other side, the main land grabbers in different Tehsils of Kashmir Valley are still enjoying approach, influence and special treatment from the officers.

The news agency CNS also reported that these officers are trying their best to save these influential people.

Earlier, LG Manoj Sinha, while talking to the media, assured that the government will not touch poor people and directed for retrieval of ‘state’ land from those who have grabbed it under some influence or by misusing their power and position. However, some Revenue officials on the ground are still harassing poor people.

“Some officers are trying their best to save these big fishes by diverting the attention of higher authorities from these names but the truth is that these big fishes are linked with some political parties or have some other influence. Is this law only for the poor and common man,” asked a local resident, without revealing his name.

Meanwhile, the general public has requested the LG administration and Chief Secretary to restrain these Revenue officials from harassing only the poor people and letting the influential ones go scot-free.
