SRINAGAR: President Employees Joint Action Committee Abdul Qayoom Wani has condemned the attitude of higher authorities of hospitality and protocol Department for ignoring the genuine demands of Employees working in Resident Commission Delhi & JK House Delhi.
In a press statement, he said that these poor employees are away from their families and all the victims of double standard of govt. On one hand govt. has provided 2½ days extra salary in favour of hospitality and protocol besides other departments, keeping in view their working hours but at the same time the employees working in Resident Commission and in JK House have been ignored besides having very difficult schedule of working. The employees working there have unbearable work load because more than 60% posts are vacant there, he said.
The main cause of this problem has occurred due to ignorance of govt. towards recruitments rules formulated in 1971. There is an immediate need in amendment of recruitment rules which can provide more employment to youth and promotional benefits to the employees, he said.
Wani said so far the genuine promotion and DPC is concerned they employed moved from pillar to post bbut no body paid any attention and care about their pain and suffering, besides so many representation have been submitted to higher authorities from time to time.
Wani said that illegally engaged non state subject contractual employees have been provided better accommodation facilities while as the permanent employees of state working in Resident Commission and JK House are moving pillar to post for accommodation and the employees working their from more than 15 years have not been transferred to J&K State.
Wani also said that the pathetic and deploratic condition of infrastructure of JK House also added the difficulties of employees and patients going for treatment at Delhi. He said that some VIPs have taken the rooms of JK House for granted to adjust their kiths and kins, keeping all the rules aside and have made this public property their personal property for enjoyment.
Wani assured Resident Commission Employees and their union leaders who are affiliated with EJAC that we will support their just cause and every step will be taken for redressal of their problems. It was decided that a delegation of EJAC will meet Worthy Chief Secretary and Principal Secretary to Chief Minister and will apprise them about the genuine demands and issues of employees related to Resident Commission and JK House Delhi.
Wani appealed Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti who is also in-charge of this department to consider the genuine demands of employees working in Resident Commission & JK House Delhi, besides to provide better infrastructure and facilities to this important institution, so that the property of J&K State be protected and will be used to provide benefit to the State Subjects of J&K State.
