Jammu Region Protests Against Inviting Outsiders For Local Jobs In J&K

Published

on

Jammu and Kashmir High Court has withdrawn an advertisement inviting outsiders to apply for judicial jobs in the region. This was the first attempt to get non-J&K residents to apply for jobs in the region after the abrogation of Article 370. 

Minorities, Intellectuals Opposes Modi’s Hindutva Ideology – Pakistan

“The advertisement where applications were invited for different posts in non-gazette category in the High Court of Jammu and Kashmir stands withdrawn with immediate effect,” an order issued by high court registrar-general Sanjay Dhar says.

The order gave no reason for the withdrawal. The Hindu-majority districts of Jammu, which had vehemently supported the abrogation of Article 370 have been aggressively opposing the advertisement.

The high court had on December 26 invited applications from all over the country to fill 33 vacancies in the district courts of the newly created Union Territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh. The last date for submission of applications was January 31.

The 33 vacant non-gazetted posts include those of senior and junior stenographers, typists, compositors, electricians and drivers. Until the special status was revoked, the state’s permanent residents had exclusive rights to government jobs and land.

The Narendra Modi government had said the decision to revoke the special status had been taken for “integration” of the region with the rest of the country, sparking fears in Kashmir that it would be flooded with outsiders.

But it is Jammu that is taking the lead in seeking job reservation for permanent residents of the erstwhile state. The high court advertisement triggered vociferous protests from the Opposition in the region. Panthers Party chairperson Harsh Dev Singh termed it “unacceptable”, saying it would imperil the job prospects of educated youths of Jammu and Kashmir.
