Baramulla: JK teachers forum has demanded immediate issuance of appointment orders in favour of empanelled ReTs.
In a statement to Kashmir Reader president EJAC and chairman JK teachers forum Mohammad Rafique Rather said that scores of candidates who were empanelled in 2015-16 as RET’s are suffering the worst as the government has failed to issue appointment orders in their favour.
Rather said, these aspirants are suffering as they got their selection on merit after proper procedure but the issue of screening test in 2016 threw up a new challenge and they faced unprecedented situation by the government’s delaying tactics in issuance of appointment orders.
They moved to the court and filed a petition vide 176/2016 where the honorable court in its ruling issued clear cut directions of issuing appointment orders after proper scrutinizing of their testimonials, but unfortunately government failed to adhere to court orders and trying delaying the issue on one or the other pretext and nothing concrete has come out other then hollow assurances. This attitude of concern authorities has made them to suffer the worst with none of their fault.
Rather while expressing dismay on the working of authorities which have made these qualified and unemployed youth to suffer for want of their appointment orders and added that these candidates have suffered badly through the hands of all respective dispensations.
Rather expressed serious concern over the government’s apathy towards this grave issue and called it injustice and against the court ruling. Ironically, many of these candidates have crossed the age bar required to get an opportunity of any other job, he added.
He urged upon LG Jammu and Kashmir Manoj Sinha to fix the responsibility and initiate the action against those responsible for unnecessary harassment by halting the appointment orders of these candidates.
Rather expressed hope that secretary education and DSEK will take the issue on priority and will redress it at an earliest to relieve these aspirants from mental trauma.
