Srinagar, May 22: A delegation of inter district employees association called on the National Conference (NC) president and MP from Srinagar Dr. Farooq Abdullah here at his Srinagar residence.
A party statement, said that among others YNC provincial president Jammu and former MLA PoonchAijaz Jan was also present on the occasion.
The visiting employees apprised the NC president about various issues concerning them. They said that they were appointed as inter-district employees association in Kashmir division by JKSSRB since 2007 onwards. After serving in Kashmir division for more than fifteen years, being the residents of J&K, their transfer has not been ordered till date. "We have already sent representation to the government, regarding a suitable development policy but unfortunately nothing has been done in our favour. Our fate has been left in the lurch. It is difficult for us to live away from our homes for so long. We have applied for inter-district transfer as per directions of various departments in ATD in the month of February 2021, but there is no outcome till date,” they said.
They further stated that they have been moving from pillar to post but all that have been of no avail. Dr Farooq was all ears to the visiting delegation members and assured them that he will take up the matter at all appropriate levels, the statement said.
