STATE TIMES NEWSJammu: Describing the new recruitment rules 2020 as a cruel joke with the educated unemployed youth of J&K, Harsh Dev Singh, Chairman-JKNPP & former Minister, on Saturday torched the effigy of the government and sought modification of the new rules with repeal of SRO-202. He said that the government notification of 4th June notifying the special recruitment rules had come as a bolt from the blue for the aspiring candidates who had pinned high hopes from the govt. “The educated youth had been made to wait for long by the present dispensation on the assurances that an employment bonanza was in the pipeline that would address the concerns of the unemployed and redress all their past grievances. The tall claims of ending unemployment were being made since August 5th, 2019 with repeated statements of creating 50,000 new jobs besides filling up all vacant positions in various government departments. The recently issued SO 184 however has spilled the beans and revealed the BJP led government in its true colours, said Singh. “The very fact, that all such selections would be held as per special recruitment rules of 2015 i.e., SRO-202, has come as a shocker for the lakhs of unemployed youth and exposed the government for its haughty and supercilious claims and lofty slogans of youth empowerment being made ever since the saffron regime ascended the throne of power”, said Singh. Pointing towards the salient features of the new recruitment rules, Singh said that all such appointments shall be on temporary basis with the new appointees getting barely the minimum of scale of pay and no increments, no DA, no HRA and no CCA. After five years of probation, the government would decide whether to give them a test or further training before taking a decision with regard to their regularization, revealed Singh. “Not only that the new rules provided that candidates of one district could apply in other districts and even applying in other division was also permissible in the new rules. The freezing of district level and division level posts by opening them for competition at UT level would operate very harshly against the candidates of remote districts”, added Harsh. Describing the new rules as unconstitutional and anti youth, Singh said denying the legitimate remuneration to the appointed youth amounted to grave injustice besides violation of the principle of “equal pay for equal work”. Seeking the withdrawal of the SRO-202 and modification of new rules, Singh cautioned the govt to refrain from testing the patience of the teeming unemployeds of the UT. With the heat fast turning into a furnace, the raging tempers amongst the youth could lead to earth shaking consequences, warned the NPP Chairman.
