Srinagar: The Employees Joint Action Committee (EJAC) president Abdul Qayoom Wani on Monday said the government’s ‘anti-employee policy’ would cost it dearly. Addressing a meeting of EJAC leaders at Jammu Monday, Wani said; “By maintaining criminal silence on the issues, it is clear that government is hell bent upon continuing with its anti-employees’ policy which will prove very costly for it. The employees have decided to take the movement to its logical conclusion by making all the programmes successful under the banner of JCC and EJAC.” He claimed that thousands of employees are ready to march towards civil secretariat in Jammu on January 30, and “the government would have to face employees’ wrath on that day.” The meeting was among others attended by the leaders including Dr Manzoor Ahmad, Amrik Singh, Ganesh Khajuria, Darshan Singh, Dalbir Singh, Narinder Singh Jamwal, Pir Nisar Ahmad, Rajinder Gupta, Pir Ghulam Rasool, Jagdav Singh, Bharat Bhushan Kotwal, O P Katoch, Satpal Singh, Gopal Singh, Tariq Ahmed, Noor Muhammad, Darshan Kumar, Talib Hussain and Satish Kumar. “The leaders discussed threadbare the anti-employee attitude of government which has imposed draconian and undemocratic laws to crush the genuine and justified movement of the employees of the state. Instead of implementing the agreement signed on the directions of the chief minister, the government is paying deaf ear to the issues,” said a spokesman of the EJAC in a statement today, adding that “EJAC will gear up the movement and will not succumb to any pressure tactics.” “In the meeting, arrangements and other modalities regarding the January 30, secretariat gherao were finalized and the committee was formed for making boarding and lodging arrangements for thousands of employees who will come from every nook and corner of the state,” the spokesman said, adding; “The leaders assured the president that they will leave no stone unturned to make January 30 programme a grand success. They appealed the employee friendly trade union leaders to join their hands with the employees’ movement and give befitting reply to the government for playing with the sentiments of the 5 lakh employees of the state.”
