Jammu, October 03 (Scoop News)-There is need to resolve various demands raised by agitating State Government employees led by the leaders in the Joint Consultative Committee (JCC) amicably, said BJP State Spokesperson Dr. Nirmal Kamal. Exhibiting concern with the non-gazetted employees who are on the roads since long protesting for their genuine demands, Dr. Nirmal Kamal said that the NC led ruling government in the State has adopted undemocratic way to crush the genuine protestors by slapping Essential Services Maintenance Act (ESMA) and lashing lathees.
The NC-Congress leaders have the distinction of issuing Hippocratic sermons using euphoric terminology like commitment to public welfare, public empowerment and equal development etc. etc. contrary to the ground reality and trap public, with intention to swell vote bank in the public meetings. Their claims of commitment to such statements are exposed when they deal atrociously with aggrieved protestors demanding their genuine rights.
Strangely, if Rahul Gandhi abuses entire Union cabinet including the Prime Minister, he is termed as true leader and his demand is met (though dramatic), but protestors raising their demands are met with ESMA. The agitating employees resort to extreme step of protests to come on the streets only when they are not heard and so they are not issuing diktats but are making government listen to them.
Dr. Nirmal Kamal further said that the government should adhere to concede the demands of regularization of contractual wagers, timely payment of wages, correct the pay anomalies and payment of pending arrears. In today’s period of very high inflation, it is extremely difficult for a common man to survive with symbolic wages and so they deserve to avail their rights. By not conceding their demands the government is exploiting this class which again is anti-constitutional and against the established principles of democracy. It appears that there is wisdom deficit on the part of the government when after the announcement of sixth pay commission all Central government employees received benefits within hours but the State not only delayed the benefits but also adopted a mock formula of stretching over the benefits to the employees over a long span of life. This is clearly a case of treachery, timid policy leading to exploitation of man power in the State. The NC leaders should shed off this Hippocratic public statement and fulfil the genuine demands of the protesting employees said Dr. Nirmal Kamal.
