Recruitment policy: Jammu students boycott classes
Jammu: Students here boycotted classes for
third consecutive day on Thursday and carried out a protest march
against Jammu and Kashmir government`s new recruitment policy.
Raising anti-government slogans, over 300 students of
Jammu University, MAM and GGM colleges boycotted classes and
marched towards Bikram Chowk area.
However, they were stopped midway by police and soon
"We reject this anti-youth policy of the Omar Abdullah
government in the State...The government should reverse this
decision immediately, otherwise, we will intensify our
agitation," ABVP leader Ragav Sharma told reporters here.
Terming the new recruitment policy as "dictatorial", he
said youths in JK have lost faith in Omar`s government.
The Jammu and Kashmir government had recently adopted a
recruitment policy, under which a fresh recruit would get only
50 per cent of basic pay for the first two years and 75 per
cent for the next three years without any allowances.
Opposition PDP and youth activists of Jammu and Kashmir
National Panthers party also took out protest rallies
demanding scrapping of the policy.
