Rana terms revocation of SRO 202 as victory of stakeholders, seeks its retrospective effect

Jammu June 15 (KNS): National Conference Provincial President Devender Singh Rana today described the revocation of SRO 202 as a triumph of those appointed under the provision in Jammu and Kashmir and those aspiring for employment in the government sector.

A statement issued to KNS reads, “Better late than never, the course correction was the only rightful option for the administration as the SRO 202 lacked logic and reason”, Mr Rana said in his reaction to the reported decision of the administration in dispensing with the rule in deference of the wishes of thousands of stakeholders, who were agitated over the period for this injustice.

Rana hoped that the administration will now release all the emoluments to the appointees under SRO 202 which would have accrued to them in accordance with the earlier rules. This will be the least to balm their miseries they and their families have undergone over the years. He said the administration should come up with a road map in this regard and not precipitate the situation to such an extent that the affected employees are forced to press for their dues.

The Provincial President complimented the stakeholders for their resilience and single-mindedness with which they stood firm for their rights. He hoped the employees would reciprocate and redirect their gratitude by rededicating themselves to public service and contributing their bit in resolving the problems faced to the people.

Rana described the step as a big boon for the candidates who have, or are in the process of applying for various vacancies being notified by the recruitment agencies as the sword of SRO 202 would in no way hang over their zeal and zest. He also sought fast track recruitment to all the vacancies, which he believes run in thousands. This will be a major step towards addressing the burgeoning unemployment problem that has pushed the educated unemployed to the wall, more so due to lack of industrial and corporate sectors, which generate employment.
