SRINAGAR, Oct 21: The top notch bureaucrat of the union territory of Jammu & Kashmir dropped a bombshell few days back when he said that it would be virtually impossible to regularize the services of the people wwho have been working in the different government departments under separate arrangements.
The bureaucrat said that since one and half lakh people are vying for regularization it is not possible for the dispensation to go ahead with the process of regularization. He also accused the previous dispensations of Jammu & Kashmir of playing with the future of these people after employing them in different government departments.
The bureaucrat while referring to the example of Haryana said that 50,000 adhoc, casual and consolidated workers were terminated from the services by the state government. He said the Jammu & Kashmir administration would not take such a drastic step and it would carry on with the present system of governance.
It would be in place to mention here that the previous National Conference-Congress government at the fag end of its tenure had prepared a list of more than 60,000 employees working on different arrangements in government departments who were to be regularized. The then government just prepared the list and did not issue any formal order in this regard.
The number of employees vying for regularization jumped to one lakh and five thousand during the Peoples Democratic Party-Bharatiya Janta Party government in 2015. Accusations were leveled against both these parties that they have included names of their workers in the said list and it was due to this reason that number has risen. This government too did not issue any formal order for regularization.
The latest statement from the top notch bureaucrat has no less than come as a shock for the employees who are working on nominal wages under different arrangements for decades together.
Some of them have been working for the past 30 years on daily wage basis with the hope that they would be regularized at any point of time in the future.
The top notch bureaucrat also said that these people were employed by the politicians for their own means and they have been ditched by the successive governments. He also said that if these people are regularized then the government would not be able to advertise fresh posts in government departments up to 2032.
The employees may have been deceived by the politicians but that does not mean that government would shut doors for them vis-à-vis regularization. The people at helm need to be sympathetic towards the genuine demands of the employees and that they are not pushed to the wall. At the same time it is also important to enhance the wages of these employees.
