He added that later, he submitted the Aadhar card copy before the concerned authorities in forest department. “But authorities in forest department are telling that they are unable to forward my Aadhar number to authorities concerned as the deadline for submitting the same has expired,” he said.
He added that he was mentally disturbed as finance department uploaded the list in which his name didn’t appear. Deenda is presently engaged as need-based worker at Raiyar Tangnar falling under Raithan range in Budgam. The department has also issued him identify card and engagement letter.
Similarly, a group of casual labourers alleged that they have found some of the names in the uploaded list whom they don’t know and who have never worked in the department.
Some of them also claimed that they could not submit copy of Aadhar card earlier as it was then not generated.
“There is lot confusion and the uploaded list has given us reason to worry. There are names of some persons in the list, who have never worked in the department, while as among those who are working in the department but have failed to submit Aadhar card copies earlier have been left-out in the uploaded list,” they said adding that the government must come clear on the matter.
When contacted, principal secretary finance, Navin K Choudhary told Greater Kashmir that he had already spoken a lot on this. “I have nothing to say on this (now). The departments have forwarded lists, the onus lies on them (If anyone has been left-out in profiling). The (uploaded) list is yet to be verified (by the government),” he said.
“We will take call when departments will come up with such proposal (that some casual labourers have been left-out),” he said while replying to a query.
