Employees joint action committee (EJAC) today expressed concern on condition of families of nine terminated employees during 2016 unrest saying they are on the verge of starvation.
A meeting under the chairmanship of senior JCC leader and president EJAC Abdul Qayoom Wani was held. In the meeting, the issue of nine terminated employees during 2016 unrest was threadbare discussed and members expressed serious concern on the plight of these employees.
"Before terminating any employee, it is mandatory for the concerned authorities to conduct the departmental enquiry besides listening to the concerned before taking any final decision and the mere allegations and FIR'S against the employees are not sufficient for punishment. Families of these poor employees have become the worst victims and have reached to the starvation which needs to be considered on humanitarian grounds," Wani said.
"EJAC has represented this case before the administration and raised the voice for providing the justice to the terminated employees. Now we once again request the Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, chief secretary BB.Vyas for their personal intervention so that their cases may be reopened and departmental enquiry should be conducted to surface out the reality. This way the poor employees may get justice and their families will come out from the situation of starvation," he said.
Senior leaders of EJAC including Fayaz Ahmad Shabnum, Khursheed Ahmad Bhat,Shabir Langoo, Haji Bashir Ahmad,Syed Wajahat Durani, Abdul Salam Rajpori also spoke on the occasion.
