Bungling allegations in J&K Cooperative Housing Corporation

BLAME GAME and the motive behind the Jammu and Kashmir Cooperative Housing Corporation was in the news a couple of weeks back when allegations of large scale bungling and irregularities were leveled. The Board of Directors was dissolved and the government handed over the reigns to the Deputy Commissioner, Jammu.
There were, however, voices against the actions taken by the government and subsequently a Sessions Judge was appointed by the Court to supervise the functioning and the process of elections to the new Board. This then led to follow-ups and people’s confidence in the organisation was shattered to a considerable extent. Notifications to holding of elections appeared in the print media in an effort to keep up the image of the corporation.
As a sequel to it, a section of press also published this item in its issue at the close of the year making it an important event of the year. What was in fact observed in the series of events is that after a sudden spurt, there was a complete break and the issue began to die its own death. By going deep into what is happening around in the organisation, it transpired that the head of a subsidiary housing corporation who might have felt ignored was all fire and chose to agitate by approaching the media and even the concerned ministry.
He used his resources to malign the organisation without considering that people are attached to it and have invested huge sums with the agency for getting land for raising shelters for them. Now that the election is round the corner and the agitating members have been taken into confidence with promises to accommodate them either in the coming Board of Directors or in some else manner, things have begun to settle down.
All misappropriation and bungling seems to have settled down. This is the way how transparency is projected now a days. If at all this remains the practice, people are sure to loose faith and will be thinking over approaching the organisation to refund their deposited money with interest rather than plunging into dirty games where ethics and principles have no values.
