Srinagar, July 07 (KNS): Scores of employees of Rural Development Department (RDD) Tuesday  held a protest demonstration here in Jehlum view park and demanded reservation in Accounts Assistant posts advertised by the department.

According to Kashmir News Service (KNS), the Accountant-cum-Data Entry Operators held a protest and were demanding special reservation in newly created Account Assistants posts by the RDD department. The protesting employees said that they are working on the same post since long and instead of adjusting them on the said posts, their services are being ignored, which is sheer unjustice.

They said that there are around 150 employees working in the department and the case is already subjudice. They alleged that the department is not following the guidelines of the court as well and are rulling out our services.

Meanwhile Vice President of employees association Zameer Ahmad told KNS that ‘it is really a grave concern that we are working on the same post and are having five years of experience despite that no relaxation is being given to us at this juncture".

The protesting employees appealed higher authorities to intervene in the matter and provide them special reservation so that their future will be secured (KNS)
