JKNPP protests against discrimination with Jammu region in SSB selections


Katra, Dec 6: Alleging unprecedented bias with Jammu region in the process of selections conducted by SSB, PSC and other recruiting agencies for govt jobs in the incumbent BJP-PDP Govt, scores of Panthers Party activists led by Mr. Harsh Dev Singh Chairman JKNPP and Former Minister held a massive protest demonstration at Exhibition Ground, Jammu today. The agitated protestors while raising anti-govt. and anti-BJP slogans set ablaze the "25 headed monster" of Saffron brigade symbolizing the same number of BJP MLAs for its despicable surrenders before the Kashmir centric leaders to enjoy the crumbs of power.
Expressing indignation over the highly biased selection list issued by SSB for the posts of Junior Assistants as published recently, Mr. Harsh Dev Singh pointed out another glaring example of most hostile discrimination administered to the youth of Jammu Pradesh with 27 out of the total 28 selected candidates in the open category for the said state cadre posts in the Civil Secretariat belonged to Kashmir region and only 1 candidate from Jammu region. He said that the magnitude of bias in BJP partnered Govt against Jammu had sent shock waves all across the province. He further divulged that out of 9 posts of Junior Assistants in RBA category, only 1 candidate from Jammu region was selected and the remaining 8 candidates were picked up from the valley thereby causing serious embitterment among the young fraternity of Jammu province. While accusing BJP for shamefully surrendering itself before the Kashmir centric leadership for the power avarice, Mr. Singh said that the BJP had not only bartered away the pride and honour of the people of Jammu region but also their erstwhile negligible share in services for loaves of power. He said that since the BJP had been exposed for its perfidious and double faced character, it had lost the moral right to continue in the government.
Maintaining that share of Kashmir region in employment increased manifold in the present BJP-PDP government, Mr. Singh said that the Jammu region was being divested of even the nominal share which it got earlier. He said while PDP manuvred loins share in Government services for Kashmir youth, the BJP was shamelessly flaunting a consolation prize in the form of crumbs for Jammu region. He said that there had been a massive student and youth uproar over the selections of Lecturers and Assistant Professors having been made during the last three years by the Public Service Commission.
He said that highly biased selection process became evident from the select lists issued by PSC in various disciplines where Jammu region got negligible share in the list despite maximum number of candidates shortlisted from it. Now SSB towing the lines of PSC in prejudiced selections had further added to the woes of Jammu youth, Harsh rued.
Prominent among those who spoke on the occasion included Balwant Singh Mankotia, Rajesh Padgotra, Gagan Partap Singh, Parshotam Parihar, Shanker Singh Chib, Shyam Gorkha, Shakti Singh, Neeraj Gupta, Rajesh Gondhi, Raj Kumar Jandial, Rashpaul Singh, Mohinder Singh, Sansar Chand, Shankaar Singh Sanju, Rohit Sharma, Capt.
