National Conference provincial president (Jammu region) Devender Singh Rana on Thursday said his party will fight and oppose the ‘politicisation and commercialisation’ of jobs in the new recruitment policy.
“The very intent of the policy is malicious. It’s for this reason governor NN Vohra has returned the draft ordinance, after appreciating its fallout on the future of the youth and in deference to the concerns expressed by the NC,” said Rana at a felicitation function to honour Dharamveer Singh Jamwal as district president Jammu urban of the party.
He said the PDP-BJP government is an alliance of convenience and not conviction.
“The alliance having failed on deliverance and realising the political uncertainty ahead because of their inherent contradictions, wants to derive as much as it can by resorting to destabilisation of well established intuitions to further their agenda,” he said.
The new recruitment policy which stipulates seven-year probation period has been criticised by opposition parties. The government has though, said it is for the recruitment of 15,000 posts not referred to recruiting agencies in far-off places.
Rana alleged that recruitment is a measure to indulge in favouritism and nepotism. He said the political class as a whole must rise above politics and find ways and means to secure the future of the educated unemployed.
Rana said the peaceful atmosphere created by the outgoing NC-Congress government is being vitiated by the wrongful policies of the new government.
