IOK Civil Secretariat employees to boycott office

ISLAMABAD: (APP) The Civil Secretariat employees in occupied Kashmir have decided to boycott office as security of lives was first priority in the prevailing circumstances.

The employees also staged a protest against what they termed as callous approach of the puppet administration, KMS reported.

The protesting employees said that they were being forced to attend their duties in a situation when an employee was hardly able to move out from his house.

The Chairman of Secretariat Employees Coordination Committee, Ghulam Rasool Mir, along with President of Lower Grade Employees Union, Maqbool Hussain, addressing the employees said that it had been unanimously decided that no employee of the Civil Secretariat, either from occupied Kashmir, Jammu or Ladakh shall attend the office in view of prevailing situation.

The protesters said that security to their lives was first priority and that they could not take risk and put their lives in danger.

It is to mention here that the puppet authorities continue to impose curfew and other restrictions in the occupied Kashmir since July 9, a day after the extrajudicial murder of top freedom fighter, Burhan Muzaffar Wani.
