He alleged that Govt of J&K has appointed lethargic officer as designated authority making the DPs suffer in the hands of unfriendly officers, adding that Additional Commissioner in the office of Div Com Jammu has been creating hindrance in the cause of DPs for last four to five years. He demanded transfer of the above officer.
