Manjit urges J&K SSB to postpone scheduled exams


JAMMU, Jan 19: Prov-incial President, Apni Party, Manjit Singh has demanded postponement of J&K Services Selection Board (J&K-SSB) examination which is scheduled to be held in the ongoing covid19 pandemic situation in J&K.
While speaking at a meeting at Apni Party Office in Gandhi Nagar - Jammu, S. Manjit Singh said that the decision to hold examinations for various vacant posts by the J&K-SSB is beyond understanding as the situation is not conducive for the same.
"The decision to hold exams for vacant posts must be reviewed and accordingly be postponed in the interest of safety and security of the aspirants appearing in the scheduled exam," he said while criticizing the SSB for its casual approach towards the covid19 spike.
On a daily basis, he said, the covid positive cases are increasing every day in J&K and the Govt is advising people to avoid crowded places since the cases are coming from every nook and corner.
"In such circumstances, holding of exams by SSB will pose a serious threat to the life of the aspirants. Therefore, the SSB must postpone it as early as possible," he added.
Highlighting various other issues, he also demanded regularization of the daily wagers, and contractual workers in various Govt departments.
"The daily wagers have been serving in various Govt departments from the last several decades, but their services were not regularized," he said.
He said that the Govt must regularize their services.
"The daily wagers who were engaged in J&K's Govt Departments by various political parties like Congress Party, National Conference, PDP and others, yet they were not being regularized," he said.
He further said that they were provided temporary jobs without regularization.
"We believe that services of the daily wagers should be regularized. If the Apni Party comes to power, we will regularize the daily wagers," he added.
He also demanded restoration of Statehood before the holding of assembly elections in J&K.
