JKLF(R) condemns formation of NCTC
Srinagar, Feb 20: Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (R) Chairman, Farooq Ahmad Dar alias Bita Karatey Monday strongly condemned the formation of National Counter-Terrorism Centre (NCTC), warning that it would have deleterious impact on the situation in Kashmir.
“The people of Kashmir have already been victimized with the enforcement of draconian laws like Disturbed Area Act, TADA, POTA, AFSPA and PSA. Now the formation of NCTC would lead to further persecution and victimization of the people in Kashmir,” said Karatey in a statement today.
Karratey alleged that the Chief Minister Omar Abdullah had issued some press statements against AFSPA only to mislead the people. “Had he been sincere in his assertions, he would have taken effective steps to revoke the AFSPA,” he said, adding that seven Chief Ministers had already raised their voice against the implementation of NCTC in their respective states “but it seems that Omar Abdullah will not have courage to speak against its implementation in Jammu Kashmir”.
Teachers appeal Chief Minister
Srinagar, Feb 20: A group of teachers (PG masters) Monday said that state government was yet to issue formal orders for their appointment as in charge- lecturers.
“Last year in August government issued orders for our elevation as list of in-charge lecturers. We were asked to produce documents within a week’s time before Commissioner Secretary Education and subsequently we deposited them. But till date formal orders have not been issued,” said a group of Chemistry teachers.
They said that 94 candidates are running pillar to post to get promotion order but of no avail.
“We appeal Chief Minister Omar Abdullah to intervene in the matter so that academic session doesn’t gets disrupted,” they added
