SRINAGAR: The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference on Sunday denounced the termination of employees by the incumbent J&K government, calling the measure blind to justice and arbitrary in nature.
While expressing concern over the arbitrary action of firing the government employees, the party Spokesperson Imran Nabi Dar said the measure is a prima facie case of arbitrariness, where a non judicial entity is establishing the guilt of the accused party without giving the accused a fair chance to contest the charges leveled against him. He stated that the thoughtless measure is also blind to the consequential quandary, which the families of such dismissed employees will face due to blocking of their income sources. The doctrine of pleasure, he rued even snatches the reasonable opportunity to show cause against proposed action to be taken against the accused.
Imran said notwithstanding anything , most of the employees who are being shown the door at the drop of hat were inducted into government service by former JK Governor Jagmohan after he banned various privately run schools and got the teachers affiliated with them adjusted into the government run schools. Now after decades, the employees are being shown the door regardless of their length of service and the resulting impact on their families. Such arbitrary action, he said, has created a fear psychosis among the employees and impaired the work culture in government departments. He demanded that the accused employees be allowed to knock on the doors of courts to contest the allegations legally.
