Er Rasheed asks CB to avoid further delay in investigating Kupwara minor’s killing
Srinagar, July 16: Seeking justice for 8-year-old Umer Farooq who was brutally murdered after being kidnapped from his native village in Gulgam Kupwara last year, AIP president Er Rasheed has appealed for a thorough introspection in the society to get rid of criminal elements.
Speaking on functions at Gulgam organized to pay tributes to Umer Farooq on his first death anniversary, Er Rasheed said. “While it is encouraging that sources within the crime branch claim to have reached very close to the culprits, it is need of the hour to avoid further delay in resolving the mystery. Crime branch must come out with its findings and take the investigation of the barbaric incident to its logical end so that trial in a fast track court is initiated.” Rasheed further added that while entire humanity within and outside state got shocked after the incident but we all need to have a sincere introspection to find out the reasons behind such sick and barbaric mentality that can turn humans worst than the wild beasts.
The society needs an introspection to find out reasons that why it is losing moral values and a huge chunk of youth are becoming drug addicts. Parents, teachers, religious clerics and common masses need to unite and ensure that the entire society is made de-addicted from the menace of drugs, he said.
Non-implementation of ACP has demoralised engineering cadre: Shah Faesal
Srinagar, July 16: Reacting to one day mass casual leave of graduate Engineers, President JKPM Shah Faesal has expressed his solidarity with them and impressed on the state government to fulfill their demands immediately.
“Engineers are the most hard-working people of the State and the brightest of the students would opt for engineering streams. However it is shocking to look at the level of stagnation in the Engineering sector and no serious effort has been made so far to address the career related issues of Engineers,” Shah Faesal said in a statement issued .
“It is a tragedy that even Chief Engineers are working in the pay scale of AEEs and the OPG promotion syndrome has destroyed the Engineering cadre completely. After 30 years of service officers are retiring with the same pension that their fellow employees with one third of their service,” Shah Faesal added.
Shah Faesal lamented that Assured Career Promotion scheme approved by the Government after years of hard work of engineers has not been implemented so far.
He called upon the Government to fulfill its obligations towards engineering cadre immediately and implement the ACP scheme in letter and spirit.
“Engineers are the primary movers and shakers when it comes to developmental activity. A demoralised cadre cannot effectively lead the infrastructure development in the state and therefore Government should immediately take cognizance of the issue,” Shah Faesal argued.
