Srinagar, May 22: Many political parties in Jammu and Kashmir Sunday took a strong exception to the administrative decision on re-advertisement of Rehbar-e-Janglat, Rehbar-e-Zirat, and Rehbar-e-Khel posts henceforth, by the JKSSB.
Apni Party (AP)president Syed Mohammad AltafBukhari observed that such arbitrary orders question the legitimacy and mandate of the successive elected governments in Jammu and Kashmir.
Reacting to the media reports suggesting that the posts of Rehbar-e-Janglat, Rehbar-e-Zirat and Rehbar-e-Khel would be now abolished, referred to, and re-advertised by the Jammu and Kashmir Service Selection Board (JKSSB), Bukhari said that such a decision would have serious ramification if not rescinded, immediately, in the larger public interest.
Apni Party (AP)president observed that the popular governments in any democracy work on the public mandate and hence they are answerable to the people for the commitments made with them. 
“These schemes framed in view of the rising unemployment of technically qualified youth were launched by the successive governments of which the BJP has been once a coalition partner in J&K,” he observed.
Apni Party President said that the latest decision taken by the LG led administration on the referral and re-advertisement of the posts earmarked for these schemes is a complete breach of the commitments made by the erstwhile elected governments in J&K.
National Conference (NC)also denounced the decision of disengaging Rehbar-e-Khel, Zirat, and Janglaat employees, saying the undemocratic action will further deepen the employment crisis in J&K.
NC state spokesperson, Imran Nabi Dar said that the decisions are indeed a grave injustice with thousands of professionally trained youth, who worked on meagre salary just relying on the hope of regularisation after stipulated time frame of five to seven years.
Questioning the claims of the government on ushering employment bonanza in Jammu and Kashmir, he said that far from enhancing the employability of the region and it's youth the incumbent government is leaving no chance to wean off the region and it's youth from the already decreasing employment avenues. 
Peoples’ Conference (PC) termed it absolutely wrong and unjustified."We are totally against this decision. Governments are about consistency and continuity. The soul and essence of governments in any democratic setup is a continuous chain of decisions which are carried on by new governments in the interest of the people. If every government is to challenge and undo the actions and decisions of the previous governments then it would certainly be a recipe for disaster," the party spokesperson Adnan Ashraf Mir said in a statement.
It is unfortunate government is playing with future of youth of the state by re-advertising the Rehbar-Khel, Janglaat, and Zirat Posts. These “arbitrary decisions” are going to only distance youth from mainstream. This order should be immediately revoked.
People's Democratic Front (PDF) chairman and former Minister Hakeem Muhammad Yaseen said that the decision would mentally, psychologically and financially devastate the future of educated youth already working against these vacancies. 
Apni Trade Union president, AjazKazmi said that the decision has put the future of daily wagers in darkness as they were expecting their regularization.
He said that the government should reconsider its decision and regularize all the daily wagers as well as Rehbar-e-Janglat, Rehbar-e-Zirat and Rehbar-e-Khel.
