Another set of arbitrary decisions: Tarigami on new passport rules in J&K
CPI(M) general secretary Mohammad Yusuf Tarigami on Friday said the latest orders of J&K administration on employees is another set of arbitrary decisions.
Tarigami said that the latest orders of the Jammu and Kashmir administration that employee’s alleged involvement in terrorism, subversion will lead to his termination and no passport will be given to employees till they get vigilance clearance are another set of arbitrary decisions which need to be reconsidered.
“A government employee is a tool to implement policies of the government. If the same employee is made a suspect and put in the basket of suspicion repeatedly, it will adversely affect his working and in turn affect overall functioning of the government,” Tarigami, who is the spokesperson of the People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD), added.
