‘RECENT ORDER ILLEGAL’
Baramulla, Jan 13: The employees of health department have termed the recently issued order by the DHSK as unconstitutional and illegal.
A group of aggrieved employees told Greater Kashmir that before issuing such an order, the DHSK should have given stipulated time to all such employees whose appointment was described as fictitious. “We have a right to defend ourselves. So we should have been given time to do so,” they said.
They said the law is clear that to receive salary is a fundamental right of the employees under article 226. “Withholding salary without any reason or due to administrative difficulties amounts is a violation of rules and constitution,” they said.
The Department recently issued an order wherein the monthly salary of around 2400 employees was stopped and their appointment was described as fake/illegal.
The order evoked strong criticism.
Around 20000 employees of health and medical education departments suspended their work on Saturday and held massive demonstration at the old secretariat Srinagar.
While criticizing the Director, Health Services, for issuing the order without keeping in view the legal repercussions, the aggrieved employees said the order has been issued to hush up cases of “employees who are really appointed illegally.” “Now that the DHSK has constituted two committees to look in the genuineness of the list at district and divisional level, it naturally indicates that the order of withholding the monthly salary of employees was taken in haste,” they said.
