Srinagar: Reacting over the recent sacking of three government employees, Jammu Kashmir Apni Party Tuesday sought an ample opportunity for the terminated employees to plead their case.
In a statement, Apni Party General Secretary Youth, Muzaffar Reshi expressed anguish over such measures and said that it has the potential to devastate the careers of employees who are yet to be put under legal trial.
“The law should take its course but in the meantime rights of the citizens of this great country need to be secured and decisions made without proper trial should not be refrained from to avoid any flaws,” he said.
Reshi said it is unfair to pass on judgments and not give any chance to these employees to speak up for themselves and plead their case accordingly.
“How can we hold anyone guilty when legal procedures as enshrined in our constitution are not followed in letter and spirit. It also defies reason and common rationale where people are sacked from their jobs without being declared guilty by the courts of law,” he observed.
Notably, Jammu and Kashmir administration yesterday terminated three government employees from their services for their alleged involvement in extending active support to separatism and militancy-related activities.
These three terminated employees are Altaf Hussain Pandit, Professor (Department of Chemistry) in the University of Kashmir, Muhammad Maqbool Hajam, a teacher in School Education department and Ghulam Rasool, a Jammu & Kashmir Police constable. (KNT)
