Excelsior Correspondent
SRINAGAR, Sept 12: The Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) today termed the decision to disengage ICDS Helpers and others as unfortunate and sought immediate revocation of the order.
The party also questioned the move, saying that rather than regularizing the employees, administration is planning to disengage those, who are serving the departments since decades, which is detrimental to the functioning of the departments and livelihood of the employees.
“Unemployment has risen considerably due to the wrong policies adopted by the Govt, the educated unemployed youth are feeling frustrated in absence of the job opportunities, it is very sad and anguishing to observe that JK administration seems hell bent upon to disengages the employees working in different departments since a long time,” JKPCC said.
JKPCC President Ghulam Ahmad Mir and various other senior party leaders and former Legislators have strongly condemned the move to disengage 918 helpers working in ICDS and urged the Govt to revoke the order in the larger interest of the employees and the functioning of department.
“It is very unfortunate to observe that administration is adopting anti employee policies without caring about the service period and the career of the employees, besides their livelihood, which is at stake due to such decisions on the part of the administration,” they said.
Snatching the livelihood of those who are serving the Govt since decades is very unfortunate, deserves strong condemnation, Congress leaders added and urged LG Manoj Sinha to intervene into the disengagement of 918 ICDS helpers and others to ensure that their livelihood is not snatched.
The leaders sought regularization of ICDS Helpers and similarly situated employees serving in different department in Jammu and Kashmir, without any further delay.
