Pakistan Observer - - NATIONAL - SHER GONDAL

MANDI BA­HAUD­DIN—A state of dis­or­der pre­vails in the district and it seems that con­trol­ling au­thor­i­ties have com­pletely fail to con­trol the sit­u­a­tion. Cor­rup­tion con­tin­ues in ev­ery gov­ern­ment depart­ment in­clud­ing ju­di­ciary as well. Non-state ac­tors in dif­fer­ent groups of mafia are loot­ing pub­lic.

Trans­port ad­das are run by pow­er­ful peo­ple who ex­tort money from pub­lic in the name of Adda fee. Sim­i­larly there is an­other mafia that ex­torts money from pub­lic visit­ing District Courts and DHQ Hos­pi­tals and other pub­lic places like rail­way sta­tions. It is very sur­pris­ing this ex­tor­tion takes place be­fore po­lice­men de­ployed there on duty.

Wheat pro­cure­ment sea­son has set in and dis­tri­bu­tion of gunny bags is in progress. Pro­ce­dure for pro­cure­ment is not be­ing fol­lowed trans­par­ently spe­cially in dis­tri­bu­tion of gunny bags among the farm­ers. Some farm­ers said that food con­troller was not is­su­ing gunny bags to them on their turn de­spite their sev­eral trips to pro­cure­ment cen­tres.

They al­leged that one has to grease palm of food of­fi­cials to get the bags. They also al­leged list of farm­ers with de­tails of num­ber of wheat crop acres are false. They said rev­enue of­fi­cials never visit fields but pre­pare list­ing their of­fices. Th­ese lists in­clude fake per­sons hav­ing no crop on ground.
