TMF flays Bhim Singh for criticizing Apex Court

JAMMU: Expressing his concern over Prof. Bhim Singh’s alleged criticism of Apex Court of the country as reported in a section of media, Vijay Sharma Rtd. DC State Taxes and Chairman of Team Mask Force said we should always have regards for the highest judicial institution of the nation and must refrain from passing on remarks just to be in news to satisfy the whims of political sermons. When the country particularly our JK UT is fighting against the deadly disease amid great difficulties, instead of supporting the cause the learned leader has attempted to condemn the decision of Apex Court. Sharma while addressing media invited the legal luminary to challenge the verdict of the court in the manner called for if he is indeed so much concerned about the migrant labourers or not satisfied with steps taken by administration in mitigating their sufferings. This is a worldwide pandemic and we have to combat it because when Tsunami comes it lays its impact and relief measures are not visible at the first instance. Our country’s approach is being lauded worldwide in the fight against Covid-19 pandemic. Sharma stated that people of JKUT are fully cooperating with the Administration and following the instructions issued from time to time and as such the administrative measures taken by Covid warriors and their claims cannot be belied. He said that the District Administration has already engaged poor and jobless artisans for making masks and thereby creating employment opportunities and source of income which indeed is the most appreciable measure.
