JCC to stage protest on April 10
Srinagar, Apr 6: The Joint Consultative Committee (JCC) - an amalgam of various state employees’ unions - has decided to organise a protest demonstration on April 10, Tuesday, in the premises of the directorate of food and supplies here to kick-start its proposed agitation program. JCC is pressing for fulfilment of employees’ demands including enhancement of retirement age.
The leaders of all constituents of JCC and employees are scheduled to participate in the proposed protest demonstration on Tuesday, a statement issued by the amalgam said.
The decision to this effect was taken at a meeting of JCC chaired by its senior leader Abdul Qayoom Wani and attended among others by Muhammad Khursheed Alam and Rafiq Ahmad Khanyari. The meeting appealed to the state employees to make the proposed strike and protest programme on April 17, a complete success.
The government was asked to desist from playing politics with regard to enhancement of retirement age and others demands. “On the one hand, government is not in a position to initiate steps for filling up the lakhs of posts lying vacant in the departments and, on the other, it is pursuing dillydallying policy with regard to enhancement of retirement age. It is also pursuing the policy of divide and rule to create distrust between people and employees in the state,” JCC spokesman said.
Meanwhile, EJAC (Q), at a meeting today, nominated the chairman of School Education Non-Teaching Employees’ Forum Nusrat Ahmad Beigh as its vice-president and Imtiyaz Ahmad and Farooq Ahmad Hakim as the members of general council.
