Police foils EJAC’s attempt to gherao secrerariat
SRINAGAR, Aug 9: Police on Thursday foiled Employees Joint Action Committee (EJAC) Secretariat gherao against the government’s failure to release seventh pay commission arrears of SSA teachers.

Dozens of teachers including EJAC President, Abdul Qayoom Wani who attempted to march Civil Secretariat for its gherao were taken into preventive police custody.

Police also resorted to lathi charge and used coloured water canons to disperse off the protesting SSA and RMSA teachers who had assembled in hundreds at Srinagar Municipal Park here this morning.

The slogan shouting teachers who had carried placards in their hands which read “release our arrears and de-link SSA teacher’s salary with state exchequer” amid sloganeering took out a protest rally towards Civil Secretariat.

Deployed police barred them to move ahead near Residency Road, however the agitating teachers offered stiff resistance that prompted police to use force against them.

Police bundled dozens of employees including EJAC President, Abdul Qayoom Wani into already awaiting vehicles and detained them at Kothibagh police station. Employees were also showered with colour water.

Talking to reporters, EJAC President, Abdul Qayoom Wani warned intense agitation by five lakh state employees if the government does not consider genuine demands of SSA teachers.

He said the government has left the SSA teachers with no other option than to come on the roads as a mark of protest.

“We have been and will continue to support SSA teachers whose seventh pay arrears are pending, we demand their salaries should de-linked with state treasury. This was a token protest in case the government fails to consider their demands employees will hit streets again,” he added.
