Everyone On Streets
10/11/2021 12:03:07 AM
During the past few months, everyone including government employees, businessmen, students, doctors, contractors and others are on streets in Jammu to seek redressal of their grievances. The protesters are claiming that they are not being heard and the helmsmen seem least interested in addressing the issues of a common man.
Recently contractors staged a protest in Jammu and stated that after Article 370 has been revoked their problems have multiplied.
They asserted that when the Article was in vogue, they used to get heard and their payments too used to get released. But now the situation has changed and bureaucrats don’t even meet them, listening to them and addressing their issues is out of the question.
Similarly businessmen in Jammu region are up in arms over the government’s decision to scrap 149-year old Darbar Move practice and fear that this decision would have far reaching consequences over Jammu’s economy. The businessmen are of the opinion that many arbitrary decisions taken by the government during the past two years have broken the back of Jammu’s economy.
The Employees Joint Action Committee has organized a Jammu chalo programme on October 13 to press for their long pending demands, which include framing of a comprehensive policy for the daily wagers.
Doctors are staging protests against the government’s decision to join the All India Quota (AIQ) for the reservation of medical seats in the colleges. After the protests by medicos the government deferred its decision to join the AIG by one year, but the doctors are demanding that J&K should not join the pool.
People from different walks of life coming out on the roads and expressing dismay over the style of functioning of the government is not a good sign, the Centre should take note of it and ensure that people get the benefits of J&K’s transition into a Union Territory. The helmsmen should realize that they have to take people into confidence and no government can run without the participation of the common people.
Members of Mahajan, Sikh and Khatri communities have been deprived of buying or selling the agricultural land in J&K. They have been running from pillar to post to get this controversial land law amended but no one within the establishment has paid any attention towards their pleas.
The Centre needs to intervene as things are not hunky-dory in Jammu and people are not that happy. Had they been happy and content they would not have come on streets again and again to express their resentment against the system.
