Cabinet to meet on May 11; BJP to oppose amnesty to stone pelters

SRINAGAR, MAY 9: After opening of the Civil Secretariat in state’s summer capital Srinagar on Monday, the Cabinet is all set to meet on May 11.
After killing of Chennai youth in stone pelting incident, coalition partner BJP, which now has new faces in Government, is in no mood to support Mehbooba Mufti’s amnesty policy. According to sources BJP will counter PDP’s decision of healing touch to the stone pelters.
Sources said that post induction of the new ministers in the state cabinet and opening of offices in Srinagar, the cabinet is all set to meet in the afternoon of May 11 and the meeting will be chaired by Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti.
The cabinet, as per government sources, will announce the removal of pay anomalies in the cadre of clerks, a demand due to which the offices were locked down for more than 15 days across the state.
Furthermore, the cabinet will also take final call on the regularisation of more than 60 thousand daily wagers in the state.
Earlier, it was informed that apart from giving an approved roadmap, the cabinet will also consider whether the daily wagers would be regularized in a phased manner or in one go.
There were reports coming to fore earlier that the daily wagers and other adhoc employees would get regularized in a phased manner, with land donors being given preference.
