Jammu ,6 Jan :- JD(U) State President G M Shaheen Strongly condemning brutal lathicharge on Rehbar-e-khel teachers protesting for their genuine demands, He said that the action of the cops on peacefully protesting Rek Employees, including females, is indication that LG Administration in J&K is shamelessly adopting oppressive means to stifle voice of the people.
Yesterdays gruesome lathicharge on ReK teachers including females is an indication that LG Administration has decided to snub voice of the workers through force and brutality.
Vivek Bali State General Secretary said that it is really shameful and inhuman that instead of listening the grievances of the aggrieved Rehbar-e-Khel teachers authorities directed cops to use brutal force against agitating workers who were protesting peacefully. The use of police against the work force is no solution to the long imminent issue as it would only lead to turbulence in the state.
Vivek Bali said that “They are working on a very small amount which is insufficient to even by one day’s meal. The Govt should also enhance their monthly wages so that they can live a respectable lie and provide better education to their children.”
JD(U) Leaders urged upon the LG Administration to address the genuine demands of REK teachers on priority as lakhs of family members were dependent upon such employees for sustenance and livelihood.
