Act against striking employees: court tells J&K

Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir High Court on Tuesday directed the State government to take legal action against the agitating employees and said ‘it was not a fundamental right to go on stir.'

“We feel the State must take all necessary steps to take legal action against the employees who have proceeded on strike,” a Division Bench of justices Hakim Imtiyaz Hussan and Muzaffar Attar said on a PIL. The court said a “disturbing situation” has arisen due to the strike of the employees.

“The strike has adversely affected functioning of the government. It has created numerous problems for common man so far as medicare, education, supply of rations and other essential supplies are concerned,” the bench said.

About 4.50 lakh employees have been on stir since April 3 demanding release of arrears as per the 6th Pay Commission report and raise in the retirement age from 58 to 60. — PTI
