SRINAGAR: Scores of youth belonging to Gujjar-Bakerwal community of Kashmir Province staged protest demonstration on Wednesday against JKSSB, for allegedly selecting fake category candidate in the selection list of Math and Science Teachers.
The Candidate belonging to Gujjar Bakerwal Community assembled here in Press Encalve Srinagar, under the banner of Jammu and Kashmir Gujjar Bakerwal Youth Conference and started an agitation against JKSSB.
They alleged that Board on Tuesday declared a list of Math and Science Teachers for various District of Kashmir Division in which maximum candidate having fake Schedule Tribe Certificates got selected despite their castes are Dar, Lone, Mir and so on but in Gujjar Bakerwal Community there is no such Castes exist, they alleged.
They demanded that their rights are being snatched by these candidates having fake ST Certificates which is surprising for us.
“When we saw the list of Math and Science teachers declared by Board we found majority of fake ST Certificates candidates selected. It disappointed us,” agitating candidates said.
They said it is surprising for them how come they managed Schedule Tribe Certificates and who issued them and demanded an enquiry through Crime Branch and Vigilance organization.
They said that in Budgam, Srinagar and Bandipur District majority having fake Schedule Tribe Certificates candidates have been selected and genuine ones have been dropped.
“ We have already protested and demanded that STGB Quota should be Separated from STO, because Gurezi falls in STO and Gujjar Bakerwal who fall in STGB should be differentiated by Board authorities like BOPEE,” candidates said,
They were demanding separate STGB Quota for Gujjar Bakerwal Community because according to them, the candidates from their community are not getting benefit from Schedule Tribe Category.
