SRINAGAR: A high level meeting of Employees Joint Action Committee (EJAC) was held in Jammu on Sunday which was presided over by its president and senior JCC leader Abdul Qayoom Wani.
An official statement said the meeting discussed threadbare the issue of nine terminated employees during 2016 unrest and every leader showed his serious concern on the plight of these “poor” employees.
Wani said that before terminating any employee it is mandatory for the concerned authorities to conduct the departmental enquiry besides listening to the concerned before taking any final decision. “The mere allegations and FIRs against the employees are not sufficient for punishment,” he said.
EJAC president said the families of these “poor” employees have become the worst victims and have reached to the starvation which needs to be considered on humanitarian grounds.
He said EJAC has represented this case before the administration and raised voice for providing justice to the terminated employees. “Now we once again request the chief minister Mehbooba Mufti and chief secretary B B Vyas for their personal intervention, so that their cases may be reopened and departmental enquiry should be conducted to surface out the reality, so that the poor employees may get justice and their families will come out from the situation of starvation,” he said.
Wani said that EJAC has decided to apprise the chief minister about the plight of these employees.
