Issue formal order for withdrawal of anti- Jammu employment notification: Harsh

‘Mere tweet of a Minister has no legal sanctity’


JAMMU: Seeking the issuance of a formal order for withdrawal of employment notification relating to posts of Agricultural Production issued by SSB, Harsh Dev Singh, JKNPP Chairman and former Minister, on Sunday said that mere tweet of a minister was not sufficient as it had no legal sanctity.
He divulged that the said posts had been duly advertised by J&K Services Selection Board under a proper procedure after receiving a written requisition from the UT govt.
The said posts had been duly approved by the competent authority in the UT govt before being advertised for filling up by the SSB. They could not, as such, be nullified by a mere tweet of a Minister, said Harsh Dev while addressing a press conference here on Sunday.
Accusing the BJP of cheating the youth of Jammu region yet again, Singh said that such tweets were often made by the BJP leaders to mislead the gullible masses of the region.
The govt must explain, in the first instance, as to why repeated cases of discrimination against the Jammu youth are surfacing post abrogation of Art 370. Earlier also the select list of 690 candidates issued by Fire Services Deptt contained names of merely 70 candidates from Jammu region as against 620 from Kashmir. And in the present notification, there were merely 20 posts of Agriculture Assistants sanctioned for Jammu region as against 136 posts for Kashmir which speaks volumes about the extremely biased mindset of the rulers besides disregard for the aspirations of Jammu youth who are being used only for vote Bank politics by the BJP, said Singh.
Pointing further towards the tweet of Dr. Jitendra Singh, the NPP Chairman said that the former has used the words “deferred/withdrawn” in the said tweet with regard to impugned advertisement notification.
Harsh Dev said that the two words “deferred” and “withdrawn” have different connotations. What exactly Dr. Jitendra means needs to be clarified by him, said Mr. Singh adding that only issuance of an official order by competent authority pertaining to withdrawal of the said notification would satisfy the youth of Jammu.
Ravinder Jamwal, Provincial Secretary JKNPP and Rashpaul Singh, Senior Office Secretary JKNPP were also present in the press conference.
