Deputy Mayor should stick to his domain, SMC not paying us: DAK

Kashmir, smc deputy mayor, kashmir news

Condemning what he termed as deplorable behaviour of Deputy Mayor Sheikh Imran who has reportedly misbehaved with the doctors, Doctors Association Kashmir (DAK) on Wednesday said that he should stick to his domain.

DAK president, Dr Suhail Naik  said that such interference is a common phenomenon and “we warn them to mind their own work. The hospitals are working round the clock through every situation.”

“He should have learned morals before talking to a doctor. It does not seem that he has taken education from a foreign country. We want to tell him to learn from Rural educational institute so that he can get some manners to behave with doctors, ” he said while condemning Imran’s behavior.

“It is not SMC that is paying us; we are being paid through the taxes of people. He should return the money that he owes the bank, rather than telling doctors that he is paying them,” he said.(KNO)

Kashmir needs independent journalism…

…now, more than ever to give a voice to the voiceless. The press in Kashmir has operated under tremendous pressures of reporting from a conflict zone but since August 2019 we find ourselves in unchartered territory. The Kashmir Walla is among the oldest independent media outlets in Kashmir and has withstood successive lockdowns as well as attempts to suppress us, fighting back with authoritative ground reports based on facts.

We believe in making the powers that be accountable to their actions but to also hold the mirror to the society. We believe in covering all sides of the story and that empowerment in essence means the ability to make informed decisions. As such we have not allowed our journalism to be influenced by the pressures.

Despite the new and still unknown pressures, we are all the more committed to keep informing you of events and stories that matter. Our recent coverage of events has brought us an increased readership. However, the coronavirus pandemic and resultant economic crisis has affected our operational capabilities. We are facing an existential threat but only your support can help us withstand this and maintain our editorial independence.

We need your solidarity to keep our journalism going. Your contribution will empower us to keep you informed on stories that matter from Kashmir. Show your solidarity by joining our members community. Kashmir thanks you.
