Early Times Report

Jammu, May 4: Kishtwar administration reinstating only 11 terminated NHM employees and leaving more than 150 in lurch has raised many eyebrows. Stakeholders have alleged that on only influential employees have been reinstated.
As per the details available with "Early Times", on the recommendation of Deputy Commissioner Kishtwar vide order No. DDCK/Plg/NHM-560/FY20/802-3 Dated 26-04-2019, 11 terminated NHM employees were reinstated and were asked to resume their duties, but contrary to this order, more than 150 terminated NHM employees of Kishtwar district are still awaiting for the orders to join back.
Speaking to "Early Times", the terminated NHM employees rued the indifferent attitude of the government towards the Jammu region including Kishtwar district as the employees working under NHM in Kashmir and Ladakh divisions, they said, were reinstated soon after the agitating employees decided to end the strike.
They said that despite them approaching everyone, including Governor Satya Pal Malik and his Advisors, no one has listened to them.
The J&K High Court in a major relief to National Health Mission (NHM) employees of not only Kishtwar district, but across the entire state asked the state government to have a uniform policy to deal with NHM employees who were be terminated by their respective district societies for remaining absent from the duty in connection with the strike.
The 29 petitioners approached the High Court through advocate Faheem Shokat Butt through the medium of SWP No. 850/2019 wherein they pleaded that their termination order has been issued without complying with the procedures established under law and moreover in some other districts, the termination orders of NHM employees were revoked--- thus there is no uniform policy and the petitioners cannot be discriminated with.
Similarly in another petition the Chief Justice Geeta Mital had observed that government has adopted selective approach in revocation of NHM employees' termination and had issued notice to the state seeking reply in 2 weeks time.
The fresh directions were issued on Friday in a petition filed by NHM employees Rohit Seth, Shabnam Saini, Jasmail Singh, Dr Jogesh Kumar, Dr Snober Singh and Mukesh Singh, highlighting selective approach of the state administration in revocation of termination orders of the NHM employees. After hearing advocate ND Qazi for petitioners, the High Court issued notice to the State which was accepted by Senior Aagha Siddiqui.
"Senior AAG is granted two-weeks time to file objections, indicating clearly as to whether the respondents have any uniform policy to deal with the NHM employees, who were terminated by their respective district societies for remaining un-authorizedly absent in connection with the strike", High Court observed.
"It has been brought to the notice of the Court that three of the Societies i.e. District Health Societies Samba, Leh and Kupwara have already recalled the termination order. This aspect also needs to be clarified and dealt with by the respondents by filing reply", the High Court said.
