JAMMU, May 26: Ashwani Kumar Chrungoo, senior BJP and Kashmiri Pandit leader, met Chief Secretary, J&K, BVR Subramanyam, at Civil Secretariat, here today and discussed a number of important issues with him. Chrungoo also presented books titled, “A Saga of Sacrifice- Praja Parishad Movement” and “Adv. P.N.Bhat-Symbol of struggle & sacrifice” to him.
Chrungoo said that the recruitment of youth in the Government and semi-Government jobs in the UT is of paramount importance. The process should start in the month of June this year and the results should also come out in a stipulated time.
Chrungoo said that there was a great potential for reform in the Relief Organisation which ahs been responsible for registration displaced people. This process of registration has been going on for the last three decades. Due to the positive changes that have taken place over the last one year, the issue of forcible migration stands ruled out. Keeping the issue of “migration and registration” open goes against the fundamental spirit of the policy drafted and evolved three decades ago, he added.
He said “time has come to review the policy and the issue of “registration” of the “migrants” be stopped forthwith.
Chrungoo also suggested framing of a ‘Citizens Charter’ for the RC Department that would publicly declare the duration in which the cases would be resolved and finalised by the office and also display the relative departmental head responsible for the decisions.
The Health Insurance Welfare Scheme in the UT may be initiated for the general public now which was delayed due to the COVID lockdown situation keeping in view the PM Narendra Modi’s vision in regard to “Aushman Bharat” to include all the “registered migrants” in the scheme irrespective of their family income and current location.
Chief Secretary, BVR Subramanyam made it clear that the recruitment process will have a timeline and the Government proposes to initiate and process the recruitment during this year in all circumstances. The PM package recruitment for the displaced Kashmiri Pandits for the remaining posts will also be completed by August 15 this year. Interviews for all categories of class 3 posts will also be done away with. The reform process in the RC office will be put on priority and things will move to bring succor to the people. He said that the Health Insurance Scheme for all the residents of J&K will be implemented soon once the Pandemic situation is brought into near control.
