Boycott poll duties: DAK to employees
Supports JCC 3-Day Strike Call
Srinagar, Sep 5: The President of Doctors Association Kashmir (DAK) Nisar-ul-Hassan on Thursday asked the state employees to refrain from election duties so as to send a message across that Kashmir is a dispute and elections are no solution to it.
Dr Nisar also supported the proposed three-day strike call from September 9, given by the Joint Consultative Committee (JCC) of employees.
“Doctors and paramedics extend full support to employees strike call and warn government of dire consequences if employees’ demands are not met. If demands are not met we will be forced to shutdown even hospitals and onus of responsibility will be on government,” said Dr Nisar in a statement.
He urged employees to be conscious of their obligation towards national cause as national cause is paramount and above personal interests. “As intellectuals they have to be role models by leading from front,” he said.
“The government has backtracked from the agreement made in 2010 with employees wherein it was agreed that the demands of employees are genuine and will be fulfilled. By now maintaining a criminal silence on their demands exposes the government’s hypocrisy and cunningness,” said Dr Nisar.
“Employees have every democratic and legal right to protest against the government for not addressing to their genuine demands. Government must understand that they are spending crores of rupees of state exchequer on musical programmes and other events. Government is spending lavishly on luxuries of ministers and babus and depriving employees of their basic and fundamental rights. Government is answerable to people for misusing public money. This is unacceptable while people are dying for want of food and other basic amenities government officials are busy in organizing musical concerts.”
NGEUID BACKS JCC CALL
Meanwhile, Non-Gazetted Employees Union, Information Department, Kashmir Division, at an emergency meeting here, extended full support to JCC programme on September 9, 10 and 11, 2013, urging the employees of the department to make it a complete success.
The employees on the occasion have appealed to the government to fulfill its commitment made with the JCC leaders on different demands including the enhancement of retirement age.
