‘Withdraw new recruitment policy’
Srinagar, Dec 8: Hundreds of students and activists Thursday staged a demonstration here against government’s new recruitment policy.
Raising anti-recruitment policy slogans, the protestors carrying banners and placards marched from Pratap Park to Clock Tower in the city center here and staged a sit-in at Press Enclave here.
“New recruitment policy is a blow on the job aspiring educated youth, who are already disillusioned by the anti-youth policies of the State Government,” president of Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Youth Federation (JKDYF federation Muhammad Iqbal Wani told Greater Kashmir.
He said the government had already done away with the pension scheme since January 2010 and the new arrangement will have adverse repercussions on the delivery mechanism due to distress among the new incumbents.
“Paying mere salaries to the prospective employees for five years is unreasonable and unjustified and even humiliating those competing for the jobs through recruiting agencies,” said a student Basharat Aziz.
Another student Iftikhar Gul said such a situation had arisen due to unemployment and lack of a ‘healthy industrial base’ and ‘profitable public sector’. “Maximum educated youth get Government jobs at the age of 37 or more and are left with just 15years or less permanent service in their entire career under new arrangements,” he added.
