Dehradun, September 4
A day after Uttarakhand government tried to come up with a compromise formula over the vexed issue of quota in promotions in state government jobs, Uttarakhand Adhikari Kramchari Shikshak Sanyukt Morcha, opposing reservation in promotions, pledged to continue with it's stir till a government order was issued by the state government of completely doing away with quota in promotions in Uttarakhand. The employees observed a strike today, crippling government work.
Uttarakhand Chief Minister Vijay Bahuguna, however, appealed to the striking employees to return back to work. He said the employees must wait for the Centre’s decision over the issue of quota in promotions. “We have also constituted a committee headed by High Court’s retired Judge, Justice Irshad Hussain, which is looking into the matter and will submit it's report in three months,” the Chief Minister pointed out.
The Chief Minister met a deputation of Uttarakhand Adhikari Kramchari Shikshak Sanyukt Morcha and urged them to end their stir. Later, employee leader GS Bakhuni from Uttarakhand Adhikari Kramchari Shikshak Sanyukt Morcha disclosed that they would only end their stir after a GO was issued by the state government of completely doing away with quota in promotions in Uttarakhand.
Meanwhile, striking employees today boycotted all work. Uttarakhand secretariat and all the state government department offices today gave a deserted look due to the stir. The protesting employees also organised a meeting at the parade ground, Dehradun, where Samajawadi Party’s national president Vinod Barthwal assured his party’s support to the striking employees.
On the other hand, Uttarakhand Scheduled Caste Scheduled Tribes Employees' Association members today staged a protest at Clock Tower followed by a protest rally. The protesters alleged that they would not tolerate any disturbance in the existing SC/ST quota in promotions in government jobs provided to them by the country’s Constitution.
