JAMMU, Jul 2: The leaders of Joint Consultative Committee (JCC) today announced to hold protest/demonstration at all district headquarters and one day “Kaam Chhod” strike on July 8 to press the state government to implement the agreements signed between JCC leaders and government on September 15, 2011 and July 8, 2012.

JCC leaders, while addressing a joint press conference at Jammu and Kashmir Tourist Reception Centre (JKTRC), appealed the government employees throughout the state to observe one day “Kaam Chhod Hartal” and hold protest demonstration at all district headquarters on July 8. They also informed about the schedule of the protest demonstration for both the regions of Kashmir and Jammu.

The leaders further said, “In Kashmir region, the government employees would observes strike inside the Civil Secretariat whereas the other public sector employees including teachers and workers will organize a big rally and move towards Civil Secretariat to express their resentment against the state government for not implementing its agreement signed between JCC leaders and government.”

“Similarly, in Jammu region, the government employees, public sector employees, teachers and workers will also organize a rally in front of Divisional Commissioner office, Panama Chowk and will hold protest demonstration against government apathy towards their demands like regularization for the daily rated workers, casual labourers and need based workers engaged after 1994, removal of pay anomaly of clerical cadre (pre-revised Rs 6500-10500) and ICDS Supervisor, enhancement of retirement age from 58 to 60 and budgetary support for public sector,” they added.

Castigating the state government for, what they said, “adopting dilly-dallying tactics vis-à-vis promises made to the employees’ leadership”, JCC leader Mohammed Gafoor Dar while addressing the reporters said, “The political leadership was creating hurdles in fulfillment of employees’ demands. We will not give up our agitation till our demands are not conceded. The employees would in no way step back from their resolve and would intensify the strike if their demands were not met and the agreements were not acted upon. We will not step back even if we would have to launch continuous strikes. The government is pushing the employees to take extreme steps.”

“If the government fails to implement the agreement inked with the employees on September 15, 2011, JCC will again intensify its agitation and government will be forced to take a decision on our demands,” he warned.

Meanwhile, the leaders appealed to rank and file of their respective organizations in all the districts to prepare themselves for a decisive struggle in near future for the implementation of the agreement signed between JCC and state government.
