Jammu cries discrimination over pellet victim jobs, want eye infections included

Jan 16th, 2018 | By | Category: New

Srinagar: Stating that jobs for pellet victims of Kashmir were another discrimination with Jammu region, several social and political organizations are seeking a share in the policy.

“This is another discrimination with Jammu. First they use pellets in Kashmir and let them steal the limelight. They dominate the news, and now they are stealing jobs too,” Harsh Dev Singh, a senior leader of  Jammu based, Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party said.

At a joint press conference of various social and political organizations, Singh demanded that the government should include eye infections in the policy to create a balance.

“We don’t have pellet victims here but that doesn’t mean our youth will be rendered jobless in this category,” said Singh. “We have number of eye infection diseases due to dust storms here.”

Singh threatened his party would call for a Assembly gherao, if government fails to come up with a notification in this regard.

“Eye are precious, whether lost by pellets or infections. And jobs are precious too,” Singh said.”So we demand that for every pellet victim rehabilitated in Kashmir, one victim of eye infection in Jammu should be given a government job.”

Meanwhile, Jammu Mukti Morcha (JMM), an organisation demanding statehood for Jammu province have called for Jammu bandh on next Monday to protest the alleged discrimination meted out to Jammu people.

The organization has appealed Jammu people to wear black goggles as a mark of protest  against state’s government job disparity policy.

“Market me ek bhi kala cheshma nahin rahe ga, tab Mehbooba ji to pata chlaga (We will not leave even a single black google in the market, then Mehbooba Mufti would realise,” JMM president Virender Gupta told Dapaan.
