All Parties Migrants Coordination Committee (APMCC) has strongly condemned the J&K administration regarding “tactics” with PM Package employees with regard to their regular promotions as well as time bound promotions and warned of a bigger agitation than 2016 if things are not sorted out soon.
APMCC leadership said that some top bureaucrats were misleading the Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha on the matters of Kashmiri Migrants in order to deprive them of their equal rights with other employees.
In this regard a meeting was organized by APMCC with the PM Package employees to understand the “tactics” of administration with them after which it was decided to give a final warning to the LG administration to either sort out the matter on urgent basis or face 2016 type agitation for employees’ rights.
It was disclosed during the meeting that some departments were denying the promotion benefits to the PM Package employees on some frivolous plea that they were not the permanent employees of the departments and that their posts would remain supernumerary created under DMRRR who can not be promoted without amendment to the recruitment rules disregarding the reality that they were employed through proper procedure by SSRB.
“It was also disclosed that some bureaucrats were giving it a communal colour by terming PM Package as a package for a particular community which was not the reality” said an official statement by APMCC.
