Conditions not conducive for KP employees to join back: Ambardar
STATE TIMES NEWS
JAMMU: BJP MLC Surinder Ambardar said that conditions are not conducive in Kashmir for KP employees to join back who had gone back to Valley for employment and had to flee to Jammu due to lack of security after the Kashmir unrest started in early July this year.
Speaking at the sports competition meet organised by BJP Kashmir Displaced District in memory of Pt Prem Nath Dogra here, Ambardar said that Pt. Prem Nath Dogra was a leader from Jammu and Kashmir who worked for total integration of the State with India. “Known as Sher e Duggar, Pt. Prem Nath Dogra formed the Praja Parishad party in 1947 along with Balraj Madhok and shared a close proximity with Syama Prasad Mookerjee the founder of Bhartitya Jan Sangh, who sacrificed his life for integration of Jammu and Kashmir with India”, he said.
Citing about Khelo India Scheme launched by the Union Government, he said that sports helps in building strong character and should be pursed religiously along with studies. Ruing that students in Kashmir have not gone to school for the last three months due to certain elements who are hell-bent to destroy the educational edifice, he said that under such circumstances when even school buildings are not spared how one can expect from KP employees to return to Kashmir and join duties. “The matter has been put before Dy CM Nirmal Singh who has assured that no one will be forced to join duties till normalcy returns back”, he added. MLC said that there are over 1200 over ground workers who are helping militants in logistic support and close to 235 terrorists active in Kashmir and under such circumstances no one expect KP employees to join back duties and carry out their business as usual.
“Let there be normalcy and then any decision about the employees can be taken”, he added.
Ashok Khajuria BJP MLC, Chand President BJP Displaced District, Moti Koul Vice President State BJP and Vijay Raina BJP Mandal President were also present.
