Govt disposing off assets of transport corporation – Dhasmana
Alleges that the assets of UTC are being handed over to the urban development department without following the norms and without granting compensation to the corporation.
The vice president of the state Congress, Surya Kant Dhasmana has alleged that the state government is disposing off the assets of the Uttarakhand Transport Corporation (UTC) in violations of norms. Addressing media persons at the state party office here on Wednesday, he said that the assets of Transport Corporation are being handed over to the urban development department without following the norms and without granting compensation to the corporation. He said that the Congress party under leadership of Pritam Singh stands firmly behind the roadways employees on the issue.
The Roadways Karamchari Sanyukt Parishad (UKSP) has written a letter to the PCC chief asking his support on the issue. Dhasmana said that it is very strange that when the roadways employees place their problems before the government they are curtly informed that that the roadways is an autonomous body and they should manage their earning themselves but when it comes to the transferring assets of the corporation, the employees and the board of the corporation are not even asked. He added that a prime land in Dehradun was transferred to the urban development department on the basis of a mere office note.
Questioning the motive of the government he said that if it is really interested to keep the transport corporation alive, it should first construct a new workshop first and a compensation of Rs 100 crore should be provided to the corporation for transfer of its land. President of Roadways Karmchari Sanyukt Parishad, Dinesh Gusain, general secretary Dinesh Pant and others were also present on the occasion.
