NPP alleges discrimination with Jammu youth, stages protest
2/17/2017 10:17:43 PM
Early Times Report

Jammu, Feb 17: Coming down heavily on the State Government for perpetuating discrimination against the educated youth of Jammu while divesting them of their due share in employment besides adapting the policy of 'use and throw' against them, scores of aggrieved educated youth led by Harsh Dev Singh Chairman JKNPP along with several Panther activists staged a furious protest demonstration at Exhibition Ground Jammu today.
Dubbing the State government's announcement of ex-gratia and jobs to NOKs of slain militants and stone pelters as highly obnoxious and insane, Singh lampooned BJP's claims of "Achey Din" as mirage for the educated youth. He said that the ruffians, vandals, hooligans and illiterates were glorified in Kashmir while the nationalists and patriots were discriminated, exploited, suppressed and quelled. He regretted that the people who had ransacked the valley followed the doctrine of secessionists, endorsed Burhan Wani's ideology, attacked Army camps, pelted stones on the security forces, snatched weapons from the defense personnel, torched schools and public property, unfurled Pak/ ISIS flags, shouted anti -India slogans and incited sedition were extended olive branch by the unholy alliance. And contrarily, the State government continued to dole out bouquet of 'deprivation and biases' to the educated youth of Jammu, Harsh lamented.
Dismayed over the deprivation of Jammu youth in selections to govt. services, Mr. Singh made a shocking reference of the recently published select list of Asstt. Professors in the discipline of Education issued this week in which mere 10 posts went to Jammu region out of 58 and the rest were ladled out to Kashmir. Likewise, 7 out of 10 posts in the discipline of Business Studies also released during current week were gifted to the candidates of the valley, he divulged. He regretted that earlier select lists also figured that out of 58 candidates in Commerce, 13 belonged to Jammu region, 9 candidates out of 34 in History, 7 candidates out of 26 in Physics, 9 in Psychology out of 27 and likewise in other subjects. He further unveiled the highly biased selections in Economics and Statistics Directorate, wherein out of 26 candidates selected for Junior Statistical Assistants only 1 belonged to Jammu region.
And in Health and Medical Education department, out of 123 selections of consultants in Radiology, Medicine, Ophthalmology, ENT, Orthopaedics, Gynaecology, Pathology and Paediatrics only 23 belonged to Jammu region, Harsh divulged. Maintaining further, he also referred to the recent select list of constable operators published a couple of days ago in which out of 642 candidates selected in the General category from the entire State, only 103 candidates were selected from Jammu region and the rest 539 from Kashmir which was highly shocking and prejudicial in nature. Unprecedentedly, 10000 posts of SPOs sanctioned by the Govt. of India for J&K earlier were out rightly assigned to various districts of Kashmir region with full consent of BJP justifying that the decision had been taken in national interest, disconcerted Singh regretted. He said that the alleged bias and prejudice in the selections had not only demoralized the aspiring Jammu youth but sparked anger among them which could prove fatal for the dispensation.
He sought a policy of regularization for all such highly qualified lecturers who had always been the assets to the otherwise sick educational system in the State. Prominent among those who spoke on the occasion included Rajesh Padgotra, Sham Gorkha, Purshotam Parihar, Nirmal Kishore, Raj Kumar Arun Khajuria, Udhayveer, Mohinder Singh, Anil Rakwal, Narinder Sharma, Shankar Singh Sanju, Sansar Chand besides others.
