Jammu, Nov 21, Jammu: Making a joint appeal to the government that it may not force Prime Minister package employees to join their duties at the prevailing circumstances, various leaders of the community urged upon the government to attach them with Relief and Rehabilitation organisation till restoration of normalcy in the valley.
They also said that it would be unfair to ask employees to work in the valley when terrorists and their sympathesizers daily uploaded threatening notes against them on social media.
These leaders also unanimously extended their full support to the ongoing struggle of the employees while calling their demand as justified in view of the target killings of minorities in the valley.
The prime minister package employees under the banner of All Migrant (Displaced) Employees Association Kashmir organised a one day convention here wherein employees and community leadership participated and expressed their dismay over the callous attitude of the government in addressing their demand.
These leaders also appealed to the government to release withheld salaries of employees without any further delay.
Those community leaders and social activists who attended the convention and spoke included President KPS K K Khosa, Academician Prof A N Sadhu, Social Activist Rakesh Koul, President TRT Buta Nagar Ashok Dhar, President YAIKS R K Bhat, APP Leader M K Yogi, President Vijayeshwar Devasthan Trust, Bijbehara Sanjay Tickoo, President JTC Shadi Lal Pandita, JK Thinkers Forum M L Raina, President ASKPC R K Wangu, Secretary PNBMT Sundari Lal Koul and Ex President TRT Muthi T N Koul. While speaking on the occasion, President KPS K K Khosa said that under very odd circumstances their children worked in the valley and never left. He also said that these employees can not work in the present scenario in the valley where the government can not ensure their security. He advised the government to initiate a dialogue with the community leadership to find an amicable solution to the package employees’ issue. Academician Prof A N said that they supported the package on the grounds that it will address the economic issues of the KP families but never thought that it would be made a part of the rehabilitation. “The logic behind KP youth going to gone valley was only to avail jobs and they served there but now the situation is not favourable for them so their demand is justified and must be addressed,” he further said.
President YAIKS R K Bhat said that his organisation is well aware of the situation in Kashmir and therefore he stood with the demand of the employees. He also suggested formation of a joint action committee of KP leadership to solve the issue of employees. “We should refrain from playing politics over employees’ issues and help them to solve their miseries,” Ashok Dhar, president TRT Buta Nagar said.
APP leader MK Yogi suggested to the gathering that they must cut their party lines at this time and put their efforts so that the demand of package employees get addressed. JTC president Shadi Lal Pandita appealed to the government to release immediately pending salaries of employees along with addressing the demand.
The AMEAK (D) also presented a resolution regarding their demand of relocation which was passed unanimously by the employees. The employee leaders who spoke during the convention were Rubon Saproo, Ranjan Jotshi, Yogesh Pandita, Rakesh Pandita Bla, Rakesh Pandita Kup, Neha and Kanchan.
