JAMMU, Dec 1: Aam Aadmi Party’s State Coordination Committee in-charge and former minister Harsh Dev Singh said that clear reference of high-headed approach of Jammu and Kashmir administration is that it is not even listening to the repeated requests made by Bhartiya Janta Party which is xerox copy of this administration.
In a press statement, Harsh Dev Singh said that grievance of Kashmiri Pandit employees and reserve category employees serving in Kashmir valley is finding no takers in Government setup and these employees are regularly on protest putting forth their genuine grievances.
He said that it is due to high headed approach of J&K administration that no one in the ruling quarters is even meeting these employees leaving them in a state of helplessness.
Singh said that Aam Aadmi Party has time and again raised voice in favour of these employees but there is not even a bit of response from J&K Government which is dominated by bureaucratic setup who are ruling the Union Territory through dictatorial attitude. “Irony of the situation is that even ruling BJP is finding no takers of its request in Jammu and Kashmir Government, which otherwise is a xerox copy of BJP,” he added.
“In last one month it has been seen that BJP has time and again raised demand for release of salary of these employees and for redressal of their grievances but there is no response to these demands.” said Singh.
Harsh Dev Singh also pooh-poohed BJP move of constituting teams to look into the grievances of these protesting employees and issuing media statements, which are merely an eye wash before public and have no practical solution to the problem.
“Aam Aadmi Party once again raises the issue of employees with an aim to get their grievances resolved as they are demanding everything within the ambit of the Constitution and none of their demand is illegal or out of the constitution,” he added.
Reiterating AAP’s commitment, Harsh Dev Singh said that employees welfare is one of the top priorities of AAP Government in Delhi and Punjab and the model of welfare for employees will be replicated in Jammu and Kashmir once AAP is voted to power here.
