Jammu-Kashmir News: The Jammu and Kashmir administration has issued an order to stop the salaries of the agitating Kashmiri Pandit employees from this month. This decision has been taken to crack down on the employees. In fact, they had issued a warning to intensify their agitation demanding shifting to safer places outside the valley. Most of the workers have already left the Valley.
The employees have been staging a sit-in since May this year, when an employee, Rahul Bhatt, was shot dead by terrorists inside his office in central Kashmir’s Budgam in broad daylight. Kashmir’s Labor Department and Additional Deputy Commissioner Anantnag have issued orders to stop the wages of Kashmiri migrant workers who went on strike in the Valley.
‘September salary will be stopped’
In this order, Deputy Labor Commissioner (DLC) Kashmir Ahmed Hussain Bhatt has directed the Deputy Labor Commissioners in the districts of Kashmir Valley to stop the salaries of these employees for September. He demanded the leave accounts of all the employees of the department and said that further, the salary for the month of September 2022 should not be drawn in respect of those PM package employees who have been absent in the month of September.
Strike continues for 133 days
A similar order has been issued by ADC Anantnag. In 2012, 3,000 Kashmiri Pandit youth were accommodated under the Prime Minister’s special package. Angered by the orders, the striking workers intensified their agitation, which has entered its 133rd day on Thursday. The people protesting say that this is a conspiracy against us.
fear among employees
The question of the people protesting is that what is their crime? We have taught the children of the majority community with utmost sincerity for ten years. Why are we being targeted and killed? At the same time, another employee said that on one hand they are getting death threats from terrorist organizations and on the other hand they are being forced to come to work.
