JAMMU, July 14: Ashwani Kumar Chrungoo, senior BJP and KP leader today said that the recent order of GAD 586JK (GAD) of 2021 dated 07/07/2021 making S.O.194 applicable to all those recruits who joined or are going to join on or after17/06/2020 is completely arbitrary, full of contradictions and irrational.
Since, the selected candidates under the PM package are a specific class of recruits under the scheme of the Government, applicability of S.O.194 is the antithesis of the Recruitment scheme, he said while talking to media persons here today.
It doesn’t provide any rationale for issuing such an order as it alters the position of the last 10 years in respect of the PM Package recruits by introducing a cut in their Salaries while asking the employees to give a number of undertakings at the time of recruitment which differentiates them from the general recruits in Jammu and Kashmir.
It is astonishing to note that a section of the administration and bureaucracy in Jammu and Kashmir seems hell bent upon to create misgivings against the BJP Government at the Centre headed by PM Narendra Modi. All those forces in the administration who want to damage the cause of the minorities of J&K and particularly the displaced Kashmiri Pandits are cautioned not to hurt and injure the interests of the Government they serve.
“We appeal to the Lt. Governor of Jammu and Kashmir and the Chief Secretary to intervene in the matter as it hampers not only the career and future of 3,000 employees but also their 3,000 families; and thereby the intent and purpose of the Government of India in regard to the Kashmiri Pandit resettlement in Kashmir.
The order should be revoked and cancelled with immediate effect which otherwise is tantamount to bias, apartheid and discrimination, he added.
