NC denounces new set of rules for IIOJK employees

Srinagar, September 18 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, National Conference has denounced the latest vigilance clearance rules for government employees in the territory, terming them arbitrary and dictatorial.

The NC spokesman calling the new rules an upfront against the rights and privileges of the employees in a statement said the new government order is yet another set of arbitrary decisions that undermine the perception of natural justice, and basic human rights.

The latest order, he said, is another addition to the “laws of exception” being forced upon the people of IIOJK. He added that the new set of rules has tightened the juggernaut around the necks of the government employees pushing them towards a state of despondency.

The NC spokesman maintained that these rules also infringe the fundamental rights of employees, who as per the new rules are liable to punishment if they fail to report their any relative’s offenses, if any.

Similarly, he said, denying passports to employees based on vigilance cases cannot be a substitute for being proven guilty by the court of law. He demanded immediate roll-back of the latest rules.
