Sopore, Dec 08 (KNO): With the post of Assistant Regional Transport Officer (ARTO) Baramulla vacant for the last eight months, transporters as well as people have been going through the miseries and are facing immense hardships.

On April 23, the government transferred and attached ARTO Baramulla Jamshed Rasool to Regional Transport Officer Kashmir while Anis Ahmad Wani, ARTO Kupwara was asked to hold the charge of ARTO Baramulla in addition to his duties.

Showket Ahmed, a resident of Sopore lashed out at the authorities and said that by giving additional charge to the ARTO Kupwara, the authorities have made both the offices defunct.

As per news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO), the driving licence trials often gets delayed due to the late arrival of the ARTO, even at times he fails to turn up because of his busy schedules, said a resident of Pattan.

Similarly, Mudasir Ahmed, who is a driver by profession, said that the worst affected community is the drivers community as the documents of their vehicles do not get renewed on time due to the absence of the official.

The transporters urged the administration to appoint the ARTO at the Sopore office so that people would not have to suffer—(KNO)
