Police sabotages meeting of JCC, arrests employee leaders

SRINAGAR, Oct 29 : Police today raided the agricultural complex here and arrested some of the leaders of Joint Consultative Committee (JCC) who had assembled there to chalk out future course of action with respect to the demands of government employees.
Reports reaching here said that Police sealed the entrance of agricultural complex and did not allow any of the employees to enter so that the meeting of JCC leaders could not take place. However, some of the employees managed to give police the slip and reached the venue of meeting from the back side.
The JCC leaders and employees assembled at the park inside the agricultural complex and started the meeting. The meeting had hardly started when the police cops raided the park and tried to arrest the leaders along with the employees. The raid led to panic among the employees and they ran away from the venue of meeting.
Although, most of the employees and leaders of JCC managed to run away some of the JCC leaders were got trapped in the police raid. JCC leaders like Abdul Qayoom Wani, Farooq Ahmad Trali, Mir Shabir Hussain and Mian Imtiyaz Hussain were arrested by the police. The JCC leaders were lodged at Rajbagh Police Station.
"The police action is highly condemnable and it seems that government has decided to take revenge from the government employees. Instead of implementing the agreement the state government is looking towards the other side and denying their due share to the employees.
The government is forcing us to hilt and they would be responsible for the consequences thereof," said Pir Nisar Ahmad, Press Secretary Employees Joint Action Committee-Qayoom, a constituent of JCC.
Nisar said that police cops frisked the employees and did not allow most of the employees to attend the meeting held in the park of agricultural complex. He said if the state government goes ahead with its action then the employees would be forced to launch agitation in support of their demands.
"Over the past three or four offices like that of Directorate of School Education, Public Health Engineering, Labour Department and Agriculture were raided so that the meeting of JCC could not take place. This shows the attitude of the government towards the employees and this should be condemned tooth and nail," said Nisar.
It would be in place to mention here scores of JCC leaders were arrested by the police and lodged at Central Jail and other places as the state government sabotaged their agitation programme recently. These leaders were released only on the eve of Eid and today's meeting was scheduled to chalk out future course of action.
Meanwhile, the arrested employee leaders were released late in the night from the Rajbagh police station.
