Youths can’t accept new recruitment policy: JKDYF
Srinagar: A CPI(M)-affiliated students` body
here on Thursday held protest against Jammu and Kashmir government`s
new recruitment policy, saying it is "unacceptable" to youths
of the state.
Carrying placards and banners, activists of Jammu and
Kashmir Democratic Youth Federation gathered at the Residency
Road here and demanded roll back of the policy.
"Rich people do not want government jobs. This policy is
meant to exploit the poor youths," a JKDYF leader said, adding
that the organisation will not allow the government to
implement this policy.
According to the policy, a fresh recruit would get only
50 per cent of the basic pay for the first two years and 75
per cent for the next three years. No allowances are payable.
The rules cover Class III and IV non-gazetted posts.

carrying placards and shouting slogans demanding "justice".
"We want our right. This EJAC will fight for the right
of the employees. We will not budge before ministers. This is
a fight for justice and we stand for justice," an EJAC leader
