Protest by KP employees enters 93rd dayin Jammu

Press Trust of India  |  Jammu 

The protest by government employees from the Kashmiri Pandit community, who have refused to join their jobs in the Valley after attack on their transit camps, entered its 93rd day here today with the workers demanding release of their pending salaries in the ongoing festival season.

Over 1,500 people from the community, employed under the Prime Minister's rehabilitation package, escaped to Jammu after their transit camps in Kashmir were allegedly attacked by stone-pelting mobs following the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani on July 8.



"The festival season is going on and most of us have not received our salaries since July. We appeal to the government to release our salaries at the earliest, so that we too can celebrate the festivals," President of the All Migrant Employees Association Kashmir Ruban Saproo said.

He claimed that not a single representative from the state or central governments has so far contacted them.

"In the last 93 days, two of our protesting colleagues have lost their lives following cardiac arrest but the state and the central governments have not bothered to listen to our problems," he said.

National spokesman of the All Parties Migrants Coordination Committee King Bharti alleged that government officials were intimidating the protesting employees to return to the Valley and rejoin their duties.

He said some of the protesting employees who have returned to the Valley are feeling insecure.

"There is nobody to look after their security. Who will guarantee the security of the others if they decide to return and join their duties?" he asked.
