Harassment of Jammu based employees is unacceptable: Ch Lal Singh

Jammu:

Dogra Swabhimaan Sangathan party has strongly condemned the decisions of the LG Government of J&K Union Territory, which have potential to risk the lives of youth of Jammu.

Addressing a press conference, Ch Lal Singh, founder Chairman of DSSP said that the safety and security of its people should always be the top priority of the state.

“But this Government, instead of providing some kind of relief to the agitating employees, has started threatening them of stopping their salaries which DSSP will never tolerate and hence we are firmly with the genuine cause of these employees including Kashmiri Pandit migrants,” he added.

Lal Singh said that these employees have rendered their best services in Jammu and Kashmir since long but now political mishandling of the situation and increasing polarization in the country have brought these Jammu based employees under grave situation resulting in a threat to their lives.

“Jammu is reeling under financial distress. Every section of the society including youth, farmers, labourers, employees, students, unemployed and even businessmen, all are feeling a sense of insecurity under the present dispensation and nobody’s there to listen to the public grievances. Corruption is at its peak as not a single file is cleared without charging hefty amounts. All decisions taken by the present bureaucracy is to promote the interest of the outsiders whereas locals are being treated as second fiddle. All contracts in the JKUT are being manipulated to give outsiders and all positions of the officers are being strategically given to the outside officers ignoring the local potential,” he alleged.

Chairman DSSP, who was flanked by General Secretary Dr Hari Dutt Shishu, Sr Vice President K D Singh Jamwal, Vice president Balbir Singh Azad and Treasurer Prof H R Sharma, reiterated that DSSP would take its fight to logical conclusion till Jammu, from Lakhanpur to Banihal and Kishtwar to Poonch Mandi is declared as a separate State with Article 371.

He further appealed to all sections of the society to support DSSP which is the ultimate solution to all the miseries of the people of Jammu and a panacea to end once for all the draconian orders of Government like recently issued against the SPOs, whose salaries has been reduced.
