Establish two separate branches of CAT both in Srinagar and Jammu: Vakil

Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Conference Senior Vice President and former minister Abdul Gani Vakil expressed concern over establishing of Centeral administrative Tribunal (CAT) in Jammu only and ignoring Srinagar. Vakil strongly demanded setting of separate Centeral Administrative Tribunals both in Srinagar and Jammu in the interest of the employees from Kashmir too.

In a statement to KNS, Vakil said that it is an act of discrimination by the Govt. as it ignored Employees of Kashmir Division outrightly and there by ignoring geographical composition as well as compulsion of erstwhile J&K State.
During the harsh winter Kashmir based employees will never be able to travel to Jammu and will tantamount to injustice to employees fraternity and thereby will be deprived to redress their grievances or file a petition.Vakil added.

Vakil said keeping the CAT branch in Jammu only will leave lakhs of employees from Kashmir valley to lurch.Vakil asked to Government.
"Why do you want employees' to travel hundreds of kilometers to redress their grievances. There should be two branches of Tribunals both in Srinagar and Jammu," he said.

Vakil said what stops the govt from establishing two tribunals one at Jammu and another in Srinagar for the aggrieved employees of J&K UT in the interest of welfare of employees and unemployed youth of Jammu and Kashmir. (KNS)
