Soz to take up job bill with Cong high command
Jammu, Apr 6: The Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) president, Prof Saif-ud-Din Soz would take up the inter-district recruitment bill with Congress high command, sources told Greater Kashmir on Tuesday.
They said in a bid to evolve consensus on the bill the Chief Minister Omar Abdullah chaired a meeting of National Conference-Congress Coordination Committee, here this evening. “The committee members discussed the bill in detail,” they added.
Pertinently, the bill has been moved by the government in the Legislative Assembly and would come up for discussion on April 9. “As some Congress ministers have raised concerns over it. We are trying to evolve consensus on the issue at individual level,” a National Conference minister said.
The two sides, according to sources, put forward their point of views and JKPCC President Saif-ud-Din Soz, was asked to take up the matter with the Congress high command so that it could be resolved before April 9.
“Soon after the meeting, Soz left for New Delhi and is expected to meet some of the senior Congress leaders on Wednesday to discuss the matter,” sources added.
When contacted, Soz told Greater Kashmir that the coalition partners were trying to evolve a consensus on the bill so that “justice is done with all sections and regions of the state”.
“The meeting was held in a cordial atmosphere and both sides exchanged ideas”, Soz said adding, “We want a principal of equity and justice to prevail.”
“As JKPCC president I am duty bound to get the bill passed in the state Legislature, but it should happen in such a manner that feelings of all the sections and regions are addressed”.
The coalition partners, he said, also discussed the need, if any, to bring necessary amendments in the proposed bill.
The meeting, sources said, also discussed the possibilities of postponing the upcoming civic elections in the state. The sate cabinet has already given its nod on the matter and the coalition was trying to evolve consensus over the issue.
