‘Illegal dismissal of 11 govt employees to deepen unrest in IIOJK’

Srinagar, July 12 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, senior Congress leader and former Indian Minister, Saifuddin Soz has said that illegal dismissal of 11 government employees by the authorities will deepen the unrest in the territory.

Saifuddin Soz in a statement issued in Srinagar deplored that the authorities in IIOJK had arbitrarily and illegally dismissed 11 government employees. This illegal action will not stand the test before any court of law, he added.

He said that the authorities had violated the basic legal requirement of not giving the dismissed employees a chance to explain their position, before their dismissal. “The Lt Governor’s Administration has closed the doors to any conciliation and reconciliation with the Kashmiri employees. This illegal action will necessarily deepen the political unrest in J&K,” he added.

Prof Soz said that the moot point is that the government is seen by the people as an entity that is unreasonable in its attitude and completely hostile towards the civilian population. “The government has shown to the world that it is totally shorn of any commitment to the principles of Governance,” he further said.
