Jammu & Kashmir Government Directs Kashmiri Migrant Employees not to Leave Valley

Published

The Jammu and Kashmir administration on October 12 directed Kashmiri migrant employees not to leave the Valley as security has been tightened for them, saying absence from duty will be dealt with as per service rules. The authorities also impressed upon officers to preferably post these migrant employees in safe and secure zones for the time being.

Fear psychosis was triggered among over 3,000 Kashmiri Hindu employees living in seven different transit camps in the Valley due to selective and systematic killings of three Hindus and one Sikh teacher by terrorists in Srinagar last week. “The chair directed that no migrant employee needs to leave the district/valley and whosoever will be absent shall be dealt with as per service rules,” an order issued by Assistant Commissioner Aziz Ahmad Rather said.

These directions were issued after a security review meeting of deputy commissioners and senior superintendents of police of the Kashmir valley chaired by Divisional Commissioner Pandurang K Pole in Srinagar.

The divisional commissioner impressed upon the officers to preferably post these migrant employees in safe and secure zones instead of far-flung and vulnerable areas, for the time being, the order said. The authorities said strict vigil had been ensured, and security measures for the migrant employees, Sikhs, Kashmiri Pandits and labourers have been tightened.

Deputy commissioners and SSPs continuously pay visits to migrant colonies and accommodations at Sheikhpora Budgam, Nutnusa Kupwara, Tulmulla Ganderbal, Hall Pulwama, Mattan, and Vessu Anantnag, the order said. Besides, security forces and the police are keeping a constant vigil, the officer said. However, migrant workers are not convinced.

Meanwhile, the government Tuesday also issued a series of directives to district administration officials asking them to ensure strict security measures for elected representatives during their outreach programmes in the Valley. It also asked them to hold meetings with political leaders to address their security concerns and facilitate speedy construction of official accommodation in the Valley.

The divisional commissioner directed the DCs and SSPs that strict security measures be implemented for elected protected persons during their visits and outreach to their respective constituencies. He also demanded that all the deputy commissioners and SSPs ensure a one-on-one meeting with the political parties representatives and leaders within 2-3 days to redress their apprehensions regarding security and accommodation.
