JCC-Government face off: Scene likely to hot up
Employees To Observe Pen Down Strike On December 14/15
Jammu, Nov 8: A day after observing two day strike, the Jammu and Kashmir Government Employees and Workers’ Joint Consultative Committee (JKGEWJCC) on Thursday announced its second phase of agitation, calling for two-day pen down strike from December 14.
“A group of senior leaders of JCC would visit all 22 district headquarters across the state during this month to gear up the employees for next phase of agitation,” senior JCC leader Khursheed Alam told reporters here.
He threatened that the employees would intensify agitation if the state government continues to ignore their demands.
Another senior JCC leader, Abdul Qayoom Wani said that the state government is ignoring the genuine demands of the employees—including enhancement of retirement age from 58 to 60 years, removal of pay anomalies and regularization of all daily wagers—for the past many years. He also resented the implementation of the agreement reached between the employees’ leaders and the state government last year. “Government is deliberately adopting delaying tactics to befool the employees,” he alleged.
JCC leader Muhammad Gafoor Dar said the employees staged series of protest demonstrations during the past three months and presented a many memoranda to the state government “but instead of conceding the demands it resorted to use of force to suppress the voice of employees.”
Others who were present at the press conference included Ganesh Khajuria, Kulwant Singh, Fayaz Andrabi, Ghulam Rasool Butt, Nazir Ahmed Molvi, Shabir Hussain, Amrik Singh and Gopal Singh.
Pertinently, the employees-government face-off has been hitting work in government offices from time to time. The employees have been regularly urging the government to fulfill their genuine demands—something which is not seeing the light of the day.
