Bureau Report

Srinagar: The Jammu & Kashmir Police on Wednesday thwarted the attempt of government employees to march towards the Civil Secretariat in Srinagar, the summer capital of Jammu & Kashmir by using water cannons to disperse them.


JK Government employees were sprayed with purple colored water by police to disperse a protest in Srinagar.


Police detained dozens of government employees, used water cannons and resorted to baton charging the employees during the protest.


The government employees were demanding an increase in the retirement age from 58 to 60 and the release of arrears.


Government offices wore a deserted look across the state since yesterday with the commencement of two-day strike called by employees’ Joint Consultative Committee (JCC) to press for their demands including enhancement of retirement age.


While talking to Agence India Press JCC leader Khursheed Alam said that, we are being forced to go on strike. Government is responsible for the problems being faced by the public.


He further said that government has failed to keep its promises regarding the agreement with them.


“Earlier the administration said that they will implement it on March 30 but not a single word is coming from the government,” he said.


“We wanted to draw the attention from the highest corridors of power. But it seems there is no seriousness in the government for resolving our issues. Why the Chief Minister is not directing his officials to implement the agreement, he added.


Reports said that more than three lakh government employees boycotted work across the three regions of the state to press for the implementation of September 2010 agreement with the government on their demand. Besides enhancement of retirement age from present 58 years to 60 years, the employees are demanding release of pay arrears and regularization of daily wagers and contractual staff working since 1994.
