#ByeByeJKBank campaign sends tremors to JK Bank
Jammu — Amid rising controversies of alleged discrepancy in the selection process for the post of Relationship Executive (RE), the anguished candidates have drafted a case and presented before the Legal Services Committee, J&K.
U4UVoice talked to the candidates who informed that a collective case of Jammu will be drafted, followed by prosecution of the JK Bank in the Court of Law.
One of the candidates whose selection was arbitrarily reduced to the post of ‘Clerk’ said, “The candidates are disappointed and distressed. After 2 years of conduction of the examination, the declared results are dubious.” He added, “We are going to pursue this case as the candidates have been blatantly harassed by the manner in which the JK Bank has responded.” The J&K bank has sent caveat letters to the candidates warning them to not involve in the legal procedures prosecuting the bank for its discrepancies. The candidate added, “This shows the impact of the voice of the mass that J&K Bank is now resorting to placate candidates individually by sending caveat letters.” He said, “It’s difficult to identify one bank authority that can be held accountable for the malpractices as they maintain no transparency and fall out of the ambit of the RTI.”
The candidates have demanded that the J&K must adhere to its promises and absorb all the selected candidates for the post of Relationship Executive ‘only’.
Another candidate said, “The senior candidates in their late 20s have suffered the most.” The 2-year waiting period seems an inordinate duration as many candidates virtually crossed the upper-age limit for the desired post by the time of the result declaration. She adds, “This movement is not about me or any individual. This has become a matter of injustice, so noticeable in our State which needs a correction now.”
The J&K Bank faces pressure as the #ByeByeJKBank campaign gains momentum. The campaign has set a chain reaction as the people are closing their JK bank accounts permanently in a way to protest. The students are determined to drag the alleged ‘corrupt’ J&K bank to the Court of Law and pursue the case until justice is delivered.
