EJAC demands transfer of Dir Edu, stages demo

Employees Joint Action Committee (EJAC) Friday staged protest demonstrations at Press Enclave here, demanding transfer of Director Education Shah Faesal and registration of FIR against him.

Employees Joint Action Committee (EJAC) Friday staged protest demonstrations at Press Enclave here, demanding transfer of Director Education Shah Faesal and registration of FIR against him.

The protestors led by EJAC spokesperson Farooq Trali accused Shah Faesal of "arson, mischief, criminal trespass and theft."

"We are governed by rule of law and not by the rule of man. Everyone is bound to follow the law of land. Shah Faesal has become a dictator. We on behalf of 4.5 lakh employees of the state condemn his criminal acts," he said.

He added that EJAC is going to held massive protests on February 29 to demand transfer of Faesal from education department and registration of FIR against him.

"We went to police under section 156 Crpc with an application for the registration of FIR against Faesal for arson, mischief and criminal trespass. We are also now writing letter to concerned SP under section 156 (1) Crpc. If need arises, we will move to court to seek directions to police for registration of FIR," he added.

"Shah Faesal is behaving like a kid, not as a director or an IAS officer. Yesterday, he barged into Teachers Forum office in DIET Bemina by slamming open the lock and tearing the banners that were hanging on the walls, he opened the locker and burnt our files," said the protestors.

The protestors accused Faesal of violating their fundamental rights guaranteed by the Constitution.

"Right to have unions, associations and offices is our fundamental right. But the Director Education is violating our fundamental rights. He is misusing and abusing his power," said Trali.

"Government has given him power and position. This power and position is trust of people but by misusing and abusing his power and position, Director Education has created criminal breach of trust," he added.

The protestors threatened to intensify protests in case their demands are not met.
