Tarigami demands framing of regularization policy for NYC volunteers
Srinagar: Expressing serious concern over the plight of protesting NYC volunteers, CPI (M) leader Mohamad Yousuf Tarigami has asked the administration to shun its insensitive attitude towards them.
In a statement issued here, Tarigami said “these youth have been serving the various government departments for years together. The Administration must come out with a comprehensive plan and frame policy for their regularization.”
“This scheme was framed in view of the rising unemployment for qualified youth. These youth had been appointed on a merit basis through a proper recruitment process and work in different departments to the satisfaction of their respective departments. Most of them have now crossed the age limit and are not in a position to compete at this stage with the fresh pass outs in their respective fields,” Tarigami said.
“Unfortunately, the present dispensation has failed to absorb these NYC qualified youth. They worked as frontline workers in battle against COVID pandemic and instead got peanuts as wages,” he said.
Tarigami urged the government to take a decision in order to end the suffering of the families directly or indirectly dependent on the volunteers.
