NC leaders denounce termination of 5 govt employees


In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, National Conference leaders and Members of Indian Parliament, Muhammad Akbar Lone and Hasnain Masoodi, have strongly condemned the termination of five government employees.

The NC leaders in a joint statement issued in Srinagar termed the action deplorable and callous. They said such off-hand dismissals smack of injustice and vengeance.

They said the action should not be seen in isolation, and that such terminations on one pretext or another are part of a larger design to purge the presence of Kashmiri people from the government services to achieve the much-anticipated extinction of locals from the administration.

The NC leaders deplored the action and said that the order had left no scope for the affected parties to challenge the action in the court of law. “Executive decisions can in no case be substituted by the judiciary. The implications of such measures also come at a huge cost of disturbing work ambience in government departments and consequently affecting the work out-put as well. In the shape of such diktats, it goes without saying that the executive has overstepped its authority and undermined the due rights and privileges of employees,” they said.

The NC leaders also denounced the use of brute force by the authorities on the protesting employees at Srinagar the other day. The protest march was held under the banner of the Jammu and Kashmir Daily Wagers and Casual Laborers Association (JKDWCA).—KMS
