J&K state government anti-employees: BJP
Talking to reporters in Jammu Manhas said that the democratically elected government in this border state has miserably failed at all fronts and at all levels. In order to shield its failures, undemocratic means are being adopted against those seeking justice or demanding what they deserve.
He said that it has become a matter of routine for Omar Abdullah government to misuse the police to supress any voice which is raised by any individual, organisation or association against the discrimination, injustice and step motherly treatment. He said the employees of different departments have been agitating for their genuine demands and by doing so they are not indulging in any criminal activity or causing any communal and social problem.
Manhas said that the demands like release of arrears of 6th Pay Commission, regularisation of daily wagers who have been putting their services since 1994, removal of pay anamolies and release of 10 per cent DA are quiet genuine and any people-friendly and employees- friendly government will never hesitate in conceding them.
Here in J&K, the attitude of the government so far has been anti-employees and it has always adopted supressive measures to silence the voice of employees, Manhas said . It is not only the serving employees, the pensioners, who ought to be treated as senior citizens and respected as elders, too have been subjected to police brutalities. They have been agitating, holding protests demonstrations and sitting on fats at an age when they needs care and soft touch. It is indeed a matter of shame for Omar Abdulah led coalition government.
Manhas advised the State Chief Minister not to act as dictator and treat the peace loving, nation loving and democracy respecting people as respectful citizens. He said the voice of the masses can not be suppressed by use of force. The genuine demands should be met with immediately so that normal functioning in the offices resumes, Manhas said and warned that use of brutal force by the state against agitating employees may result in serious repercussions.
