Rajouri: To promote the ongoing campaign against corruption and champion the cause of transparent and accountable governance, Deputy Commissioner Rajouri, Vikas Kundal on Friday flagged off a grand awareness rally spanning from Rajouri Sports Stadium to the DC Office Rajouri.
This event marked a pivotal moment in the ongoing “Bhrashtachar Mukht J and K Week,” where more than 1000 dedicated participants marched a distance of 2 kilometers on foot, symbolizing their commitment to the cause.
The rally culminated at the DC Office Rajouri, resonating with the overarching aim of creating awareness among the masses about Digital India and “Bhrashtachar Mukt J and K Week.” This week-long initiative, celebrated with fervor, will continue to inspire the people of District Rajouri from September 4th to September 10th, 2023.
Deputy Commissioner Vikas Kundal spearheaded the monumental rally, commencing with a solemn pledge-taking ceremony held at the Sports Stadium in the morning.
This visionary initiative aspired to unite the community in a relentless battle against corruption while simultaneously illuminating the empowerment opportunities offered through the Janbhagidari portal. Its core focus is on involving every stratum of society, with special attention directed towards rural communities. Special Gram Sabha meetings have been organized across all Panchayats in the district to cultivate a corruption-free environment in the sacred land of Jammu and Kashmir.
The campaign delineates key areas of concentration as directed by Deputy Commissioner Vikas Kundal, which includes vital government departments such as Revenue, Rural Development and Panchayati Raj (RDD), Public Works Department (PWD), and Power Development Department (PDD). Priority will be given to addressing grievances associated with the Revenue Department, including matters related to land records, mutations, and demarcations. The campaign ensures that these issues are resolved promptly and efficiently at the requisite levels.
Furthermore, Deputy Commissioner Vikas Kundal has issued directives to all public officers to accord priority to matters of public importance, taking swift and decisive action to redress them. Special emphasis is placed on achieving full household tap connections, resolving electricity-related issues, and tackling land revenue matters. All complaints received during this week-long campaign will be handled on an overriding priority basis.
In a bid to facilitate the reporting and resolution of corruption-related grievances, special counters have been established at the tehsil, block, and district levels.
The participation of common citizens and PRI members, alongside District officers like ADC Rajouri Rajiv Khajuria, ACR Rajouri Imran Malik, CEO Rajouri Sultana Kouser, and others, has been instrumental in driving the success of this campaign.
The “Bhrashtachar Mukt J and K Week” signifies more than just a campaign; it embodies a collective commitment to construct a society free from corruption, characterized by accountability and transparency. Under the unwavering leadership of Deputy Commissioner Vikas Kundal, District Rajouri is resolute in ushering in a new era of transparent governance, steadfastly upholding the cherished values of integrity and honesty.
