Bathinda, December 8

As tehsildars have been on mass leave for the last two weeks over the alleged high-handedness of the Vigilance Bureau, residents are perturbed over the suspension of work at the Revenue Department offices.

Tehsildars under the banner of the Punjab Revenue Officers’ Association have been holding protests across the state against the arrest of a naib tehsildar and a registry clerk by the Vigilance Bureau in Hoshiarpur on November 22. Employees of the DC office, kanungos, patwaris and district revenue officers have extended their support to the protesters.

A group of visitors at the Bathinda tehsil office said they had been running from pillar to post, but could not get the registry of land purchased done for the last 10 days. All main tehsil and sub-tehsil offices, including Rampura Phul, Talwandi Sabo, Maur, Goniana, Sangat, Bhagta, Nathana and Ballianwali, have been lying closed. Gurdev Singh, chief, Punjab Revenue Officers’ Association, said, “As long as the Vigilance Bureau does not cancel the case registered against the naib tehsildar and his reader, we will continue our protest.” — TNS
