Says decision reeks of utter disregard for decisions made by elected J&K governments

Srinagar, 22 May (KNS) : The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference on Sunday denounced LG administration’s decision of disengaging Rehbar-e-Khel, Zirat, and Janglaat employees, saying the undemocratic action will further deepen the employment crisis in J&K.

Reacting to the government's order of disengaging Rehbar e Khel, Ziraat and Janglaat employees, JKNC State Spokesperson Imran Nabi Dar said that the decisions are indeed a grave injustice with thousands of professionally trained youth, who worked on meagre salary just relying on the hope of regularisation after stipulated time frame of five to seven years.

He said the scheme was framed by the elected governments keeping in view the alarming rates of unemployment rates in J&K. “Undoing of the decisions taken up by democratically elected governments by a bureaucrat setup is unfair and unjust. Such decisions have no parallel in democracies and nowhere has this happened that a few bureaucrats have usurped a decision duly approved by the state cabinet which ahd the sanction of the people of J&K. What this makeshift administration has done is that it has completely disregarded the decision which had people's mandate behind it,” he said.

“The decision has raised a big question mark on the entire exercise. Behind the fig leaf of promoting transparency, it seems that the incumbent administration is working on a plan to engage outsiders in J&K and keep the youth of J&K out of such job opportunities. By disengaging these employees at this juncture the administration has put them, their families to undue duress and sufferings,” Imran added.

Questioning the claims of the government on ushering employment bonanza in Jammu and Kashmir, he said that far from enhancing the employability of the region and it's youth the incumbent government is leaving no chance to wean off the region and it's youth from the already decreasing employment avenues.(KNS)
