Govt prolonging Aasiya’s detention: DeM

Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM) today accused the government of what it termed as "prolonging detention" of its chairperson Syeda Aasiya Andrabi.   

"Aasiya Andrabi was arrested on October 4 from Srinagar and has since been lodged in Baramulla Sub Jail under the Public Safety Act. The government counsel since then has not filed the objections in the court therefore deliberately prolonging her detention," a spokesperson of the DeM, in a statement today. 

Meanwhile, DeM secretary general Nahida Nasreen, said that Syeda Aasiya's younger son Ahmed bin Qasim was operated upon at SKIMS Soura here on late Monday evening. 

"While Ahmad has been operated upon, his father and mother are languishing in jails," Nasreen said, adding that "What could be more inhuman and brutalizing than this?"

Ahmad's father Muhammad Qasim is serving life imprisonment in Central Jail Srinagar.

Incorporate 7th pay commission in upcoming budget: Qayoom Wani to Govt

Srinagar, Dec 13: Employees Joint Action Committee (EJAC), at a meeting held in Jammu today with its president Abdul Qayoom Wani in chair, appealed to the state government to incorporate the seventh pay commission in the upcoming budget.

 The meeting also appealed to the government for revocation of the termination order of employees.  "The government should revoke the termination order of innocent employees, who have been deprived to plead their just cause before the authorities and have been victimized without giving them chance to be heard," a spokesman of the EJAC, in a statement today, quoted  Qayoom  Wani as saying  while addressing the meeting

Wani said, "If the government failed to regularize the services of daily wagers, revoke the termination order of innocent employees , incorporate the seventh  pay commission in coming budget, release  interim relief in favour of the state employees and public sector units , then the employees will have no option but to hit the streets once again."

"The school education department is unnecessarily teasing RET Teachers in the name of so- called exam drama," Wani said, terming it highly condemnable.  He asked RETs not to accept any 'exam drama' as they did in the past. 

Wani said, "The authorities of education department should work out the strategy to regularize the salary of teachers working under SSA instead of conducting so-called exam of ReT teachers.  Teachers working under RMSA and NPS schemes are without salaries for last six months which has put them in mental trauma."

"EJAC will fully support the protest programme of RET teachers forum scheduled on December 15 at Press Club, Jammu, under the leadership of Vinod Sharma against exam drama by authorities of education department," Wani said.
