PHEAam Aadmi Party (AAP) has strongly condemned the action of senior National Conference leader and Minister for Consumer Affairs, Public Distribution (CAPD) & Transport wherein he assaulted and misbehaved with Chief Engineer of Public Health Engineering(PHE) Department Kashmir. In a statement issued here through AAP’s National Executive Member Dr Raja Muzaffar Bhat , the party has demanded that Chief Minister must seek an explanation from the Minister for using abusive language against the senior Government officer who is known from his good work in the department of PHE.“Leveling personal attack that too in front of PHE & Irrigation Minister and other officials of the department is a matter of serious concern and condemnation. Every civilized person must condemn this kind of action .The present regime in the state lead by National Conference has made such a kind of political interference in our Government and other institutions, that most of these institutions have lost their decorum and have been almost turned into a mess ” said Dr Muzaffar

“ We get so many phone calls from Government officers wherein they tell us that such as such Minister and MLA from ruling party is asking them to appoint party workers in the department through backdoor means , even many engineers have told me that they are been forced to issue tenders for executing illegal works , in such a situation how can we expect the institutional growth in our state “ Muzaffar questioned.
