JCC calls for strike on August 5, 6
Rather misguiding Omar: Employees' leaders
KASHMIR NEWS SERVICE
Srinagar, July 19: State government employees on Tuesday threatened to expose ‘corrupt’ ministers and bureaucrats in Jammu and Kashmir, if their demands weren’t fulfilled immediately.
“If our genuine demands are not met we will launch a campaign against corrupt ministers, bureaucrats and advisors of the state government. We have details how these people have embezzled massive wealth through unfair means,” leaders of Joint Consultative Committee Abdul Qayoom Wani and Khurshid Aalam told a news conference here.
The employees are demanding release of pending arrears of the sixth pay commission, regularization of dailywagers, enhancement of retirement age from 58 to 60 and enhancement in wages of Anganwari workers.
The JCC leaders warned the coalition government to desist from what they called anti-employees policies and path of confrontation. “The government has backtracked from the promises and agreements made with the employees from time-to-time,” they alleged.
Wani and Aalam alleged that some of the senior cabinet ministers including Finance Minister Abdul Rahim Rather were misleading the Chief Minister Omar Abdullah regarding the demands of the employees.
“JCC leadership has been trying for amicable settlement of the issue through negotiations. Instead the government has always tried to suppress the employees’ movement by force,” he asserted.
The JCC leaders alleged that Jammu and Kashmir had become a ‘hub of corruption.’
“Ana Hazare should come here and five lakh employees will follow him,” they said.
Wani said despite the cabinet order, regularization of contractual, daily wagers and adhocees has not been done till date.
