JKNPP protests over discrimination with Jammu youth in selections to govt jobs

Early Times Report

Jammu, Dec 13: Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party (JKNPP) activities today staged protest demonstration for what they termed as biased selections to govt jobs made by SSB, PSC and other recruiting agencies.
The protesters were led by Harsh Dev Singh Chairman JKNPP and Yash Paul Kundal State President Young Panthers at exhibition ground, Jammu. The agitated protestors while raising anti-govt. and anti-BJP slogans accused the saffron brigade of selling the aspirations of Dogra youth to the valley centric PDP for continuing in power.
Disconcerted by the extremely biased selection list issued by SSB for the posts of Junior Assistants as published recently, Harsh Dev Singh said that the shocking results of the most glaring selections were still not sinking in the minds of Dogra youth which dished out 27 posts out of the total 28 State cadre posts of Civil Secretariat in the open category to the candidates of Kashmir region where as only 1 post was conferred to the candidate from Jammu region.
He further revealed that out of 9 posts of Junior Assistants in RBA category, 8 candidates were picked up from the valley and just 1 candidate was selected from Jammu region. Regretting that the magnitude of discriminatory recruitment in the BJP partnered Govt had severely jolted and shuddered the youth of entire Jammu province, he accused the BJP of remaining impuissant and criminally silent over the gravest issue of discrimination faced by the young fraternity of the region.
Shameful acquiesce of BJP before the valley centric leadership for the crumbs of power had reduced the erstwhile negligible share of Jammu region in services to merely 2 or 3 percent, said Harsh. He said that a team of JKNPP was leaving for New Delhi today to lodge their protest against highly biased treatment to Jammu region in BJP rule by holding series of protests outside parliament and elsewhere in Delhi.
Maintaining that share of Kashmir region in employment increased manifold in the present BJP-PDP government, Singh said that the Jammu Pradesh was being robbed of its nominal share and apparently divested of govt. jobs in principle. He said that there had been a huge student and youth ruckus and discontent over the selections of Lecturers and Assistant Professors having been made during the last three years by the Public Service Commission as well.
He said that highly biased selection process became evident from the select lists issued by PSC in various disciplines where Jammu region got negligible share in the list despite maximum number of candidates shortlisted from it. He urged the Governor to take cognizance of the discrimination meted out to the youth of Jammu region in employment sphere and initiate a high level probe into the hostile selections of Junior Assistants made by the SSB. He demanded that the respective appointment letters should be kept on hold until the outcome of such investigation.
Prominent among those who spoke on the occasion included Rajesh Padgotra, Gagan Partap Singh, Parshotam Parihar, Shanker Singh Chib, Kapoor Singh, Neeraj Gupta, Rajesh Gondhi, Rashpaul Singh, Mohinder Singh, Stiffness Gill, Ravinder Jamwal, Rohit Sharma, Vikas Bali, Vishav Singh, Udhayveer Sambyal, Lakhwinder Singh, Jackson Gill besides others.
