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.

In another agitation in the city, a faction of Employees Joint Action Committee held a demonstration demanding release of their salary arrears and regularisation of all daily wagers and ad hoc employees.

Scores of employees gathered at the Residency Road 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 said.
