Ganderbal to observe shutdown
Ganderbal, Apr 8: Anti Inter District Recruitment Forum (AIDRF) Kangan has called for shutdown and peaceful protests in Ganderbal district on Friday to press for imposing a ban on inter-district recruitment.
The Forum has assured the Kupwara Bachao Committee, spearheading the agitation to seek ban on inter district recruitments, of its full support.
Various NGOs and social organizations, including Youth Power, Association of Educated Unemployed Youth (AEUY) Ganderbal, Public Welfare Council Kangan, Public Welfare Committee Gund, have supported AIDRF’s call and urged the people to make it a success.
“The government should ensure that legislature passes the bill banning inter-district recruitment in the ongoing session,” representatives of various organizations told Greater Kashmir.
They said that Ganderbal district had suffered a lot due to this “discriminatory policy.”
“Candidates from other districts have always got a lion’s share while the candidates from our district have always remained on the back foot,” said Muhammad Ashraf of Safapora.
“Out of total of 229 teachers selected in Open Merit category recently, 119 candidates were selected from other districts by the Service Selection Board (SSB),” Ashraf added.
The chairman of AIDRF Kangan said, “Previously Govt advertised 402 posts for Ganderbal district out of which 82 were reserved for RBA category. However, only 16 candidates were selected from Kangan while others were from other districts.”
