National Conference confirms participation in Delimitation Commission meet

Published

on

Jammu and Kashmir National Conference (NC) leaders will attend the Delimitation Commission’s associate members meeting in New Delhi next week, party MP Hasnain Masoodi said on Saturday.

He, however, said there was no shift in the party’s stand that the exercise “offends” the spirit of the Constitution.

“Seeing the overall scenario, the party has decided that its MPs will attend the meeting,” Masoodi, the MP from south Kashmir’s Anantnag, said.

He said since the commissions cannot travel to the length and breadth of the Union Territory, they cannot hear what people have to say. “So, we will take the people’s viewpoint to the commission,” he said, adding all three MPs from the party — NC president Farooq Abdullah, Akbar Lone and himself — will arrive in Delhi.

The NC MP said the party had written to the commission seeking its agenda, but there was no response.

“We want to know what their agenda is. We had asked them to submit the agenda of the meeting and the relevant supporting material. But they did not. So, we have to go there to see what their agenda is…,” he said.

Stressing that the party had not changed its stand on the matter, he said, “…This is not something new. The party (had earlier) met the commission on its Srinagar visit and submitted a memorandum saying it is not permissible in the Constitution. We stand by that. There is no shift in our stand that this exercise offends the spirit of the Constitution,” he said.

He said the “right thing” for the government would have been to restore August 4, 2019, position –- a day before the Centre revoked the erstwhile state’s special status — and then proceed with the delimitation.

The NC had boycotted the first associate meeting of the commission in February, saying the exercise was an outcome of the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganization Act-2019, which the party had challenged in the Supreme Court. It said participation in the commission proceedings was “tantamount” to accept the August 5, 2019, changes.

Meanwhile, Peoples Conference chief Sajad Lone hit the NC for “multiple speak”.

“Please at least have the courtesy to show even some pretence and explain how it was tantamount to endorsement then and not now. Digital world. Digital proof. Chit bhi meri patt be meri won’t work. The era of Multiple speeches in Srinagar and Delhi— in multiple places is over (sic),” Lone wrote on Twitter. The remarks of Lone, who was earlier in the separatist camp before switching over to the mainstream in 2009 and grew close to the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the run-up to the 2014 elections, came after his party put out tweets criticising the NC.

“These are the utterances of Dr Farooq Abdullah. What changed between then and now for the NC to now participate. Is it not tantamount to endorsing August 5 decisions now. There is a limit on a monopoly on morality,” the Peoples Conference tweeted, referring to Abdullah’s remarks that the party will attend the meeting.

With the termination of two more teachers of the School Education Department, the government in the past more than two months has sacked at least 28 teachers from the services for remaining absent unauthorizedly.
In an order issued by the Director of School Education Kashmir (DSEK), said that these teachers have been remaining absently unauthorized from their legitimate duties.
One of the orders issued by the DSEK, a copy of which lies with the news agency states that one among the terminated teachers continues to remain absent un-authorizedly for 19 years.
“One of the teachers posted at Primary School Khumriyal in north Kashmir’s Kupwara remained unauthorizedly absent from her legitimate duties from 01-07-2002, and the teacher did not resume her legitimate duties and continued to remain unauthorizedly absent for 19 years,” it reads.
It also states that the teacher was provided with an opportunity to be heard by DSEK on 06-07-2021 wherein she was directed to present herself before the directorate along with a statement of defence within seven days.
DSEK said that the teacher responded the notice on 15-07-2021 but on its examination it was found unsatisfactory and unsubstantiated and could not justify her long unauthorized absence
“The issue was placed before the Designated Committee and pursuant to the decision of the committee, the teacher is hereby removed from the service of the State in terms of Article 113 of J&K Civil Services Rules (Volume I) of 1956 and rule 30(vii) of J&KCCA rules 1956,” it reads.
Likewise, another teacher was also terminated for remaining unauthorized absent from her legitimate duties.
DSEK said that the teacher was absent from 01-10-2014 and had proceeded outside the country without obtaining prior station leave permission or the sanction of leave from the competent authority.
On January-14, the government has terminated three teachers of the School Education Department from the services for remaining absent un-authorizedly.
In the first week of December-2021, the government sacked one teacher followed by six more in the last week of November-2021 for remaining absent un-authorizedly
