Srinagar, Feb 18: Kashmir employees in Jammu Monday boycotted their duties to press the Governor led administration over their demands.
The employees boycotted their duties from today and said they will continue to boycott their duties until and unless their demands are not met.
The Darbar Move Employees Federation (DMEF) has been demanding safety of their families.
DMEF president, Owais Wani said the government sent vehicles for the employees today to ferry the employees to Civil Secretariat and other government offices but they refused to join their duties today.
“The employees demand complete security to their families and want their families be sent back to Kashmir safely,” Wani said, adding that their families especially are scared while as there is shortage of essential commodities as well, therefore the employees are not able to feed their families as well.
He said amid curfew, the petrol bomb was hurled in one of the government quarters here. “I want to ask what kind of curfew is in place in Jammu as the youth are openly coming and attacking the employees,” he said.
“I also urge the authorities to provide curfew pass to me so that I can visit the employees who are staying in Jammu,” he said. (KNS)
