Jammu: Engineer-turned-lawmaker, Sheikh Abdul Rasheed on Monday asked PDP-BJP government to fulfil its duties towards people of J&K and resolve the issues of unemployed technocrats.
The MLA Langate said that these unemployed technocrats are suffering because of arrogant and irresponsible attitude of babus and Ministers.
A statement issued by Rasheed said that while interacting with un-employed veterinary doctors, who were on protest outside public service commission office Jammu, Er Rasheed said that while there is a capacity of some four hundred doctors and surgeons but the government has preferred to give excuses and has referred just 24 posts to PSC, which had put these posts for written test on Monday.
However, majority of the students boycotted the written test and said that the limited number of posts have been advertised only to accommodate the blue eyed persons and near and dear ones of ministers, Rasheed alleged.
He, however, assured the protesting doctors of his full support and said he will convey their concerns and grievances to Chief Ministers office and other concerned officials personally.
The statement said that Rasheed expressed his displeasure for delaying the clearance to creation of posts in Animal Husbandry Department and not holding the departmental promotion meeting to create more vacancies.
Rasheed also met Chairman PSC and expressed his displeasure over conducting the written test without considering the genuine reservations of these doctors.
Rasheed sought cancellation of the written test, as it has been conducted without addressing the grievances of majority of the candidates.
