JAMMU/BARAMULLA, May 27: Rehber-E-Khel teachers took out a protest rally in favour of their demands wherein they demanded regularisation of ReK teachers as well as roll back of General Administration Department (GAD)’s order over re-advertisement of the posts, here today.
In Jammu, hundreds of ReK teachers assembled outside BJP office Trikuta Nagar and took out a protest rally under the leadership of Dheeraj Salarial, vice president of the Association. They were chanting slogans in favour of their demands and appealed to the public to support their demands.
The rally started outside BJP office which passed through Bahu Plaza, Panama Chowk, Railway Station Chowk and finally culminated at outside BJP office where they have been protesting for the last five days.
In Baramulla, the protestors staged the protest under the leadership of Syed Aijaz, which was joined by hundreds of Rek teachers against the Govt’s decision to re advertise the posts, saying that the move would reduce the chances of regularisation of employees recruited under the schemes.
A protestor said that the order issued by GAD has shocked the employees’ fraternity and jeopardized the services of employees who were engaged on merit in various departments and said that the Govt should have regularised us because we are working in these departments for many years.
The protesting employees said as per the policy we were supposed to be regularised after serving the probation period of 7 years but Govt’s decision to de-freezing these posts is unjustified and unfortunate as these employees have worked in the department for a long time and were waiting for redressal of their legitimate and genuine demands.
Moreover, EJAC urged LG Manoj Sinha to formulate a comprehensive regularization plan in favour of these employees so that they can live a dignified life.
