Srinagar, Oct 29: Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) on Monday staged a protest against the alleged fraud in recruitments in J&K Bank.
The state congress leaders headed by party’s General Secretary Surinder Singh Channi assembled at party headquarters here at Srinagar and raised slogans against the alleged fraud in recruitments in corporations like JK Bank and Jio Health Insurance scam.
Protesting congress leaders said that those who are involved in this alleged fraud should be brought to book according to the law.
They urged upon the Governor Satya Pal Malik to order judicial probe into the scam to ascertain as to “why blue-eyed person of PDP and BJP were adjusted and deserving youth were ignored.”
The protesting leaders also rejected the claim of higher authorities that there was no tinkering with the selection list, but at the same time JKPCC emphasized that there should be impartial to find out as to what has gone wrong.
They said that erstwhile PDP-BJP regime on whose behest the recruitment were made in the prime financial institution cannot escape the responsibility of corruption and favourtism in the J&K. “We demand a probe by sitting High Court Judge be ordered to fix responsibility, as that the corruption has marred the important Institutions in the State, as a result people have lost faith in the system,” Channi said.
Ironically there are tough rules for the J&K Bank Consumers, but no rule for blue-eyed persons leading to the large-scale resentment among the people, they said, adding that the helmsmen in the J&K Bank are living a luxurious life at the cost of the local consumers and it is the responsibility of the Government to look into the frauds done in the Bank to restore the confidence among the people.
Referring to Jio Health Insurance Scam, they said “the same Company that has been established seven days before cracking Rafael Jet Deal to benefit Ail Ambani & Company, astonishing, the same company with the help of some people in the Administration misled people especially employees of the State on Health Insurance Scheme.”
They also demanded that those responsible behind Jio Health Insurance be identified and brought to book.
