GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Feb 24: The FCI employees of district office Srinagar Wednesday protested what they said “wrong policies of regional management, FCI Jammu.”
The employees staged a dharna outside district office and raised slogans against the management accusing it of adopting wrong policies.
The agitation was launched on the notice of BKNK Sang. Munshi Muhammad Rafiq, district chairman, M. M. Pal Singh, district secretary and Muhammad Ayub Bhat, executive member addressed the employees.
The employees decided to continue with the agitation till Feb 28.
The employees alleged that the Valley is being discriminated against by the management. They said the officials posted to the Valley are flouting the orders with the managing not taking any action against them.
They said the FCI in the Valley was facing deficiency of staff yet no fresh appointments are made in the Valley. “Those who are transferred and posted here, don’t bother to honour the orders.”
The employees said: “It is the irony that instead of initiating action against the officers/officials who have disregarded the orders, the Regional Management has showered blessing on them by revoking the orders.”
They alleged that the incentives have recently been given to the Jammu employees only leaving their counterparts in the Valley high and dry.
The employees said over the years there has been tremendous increase in the storage capacity in the Valley, yet “the manpower still remains same as it was years before.”
They said while as the outsiders are reluctant to come to the Valley, “the managing is not interested in appointing the locals.”
The demanded immediate redress of their grievances.
