The Government today made it clear that no lists of casual labours, daily wagers & other such workers have been finalized for regularization yet and all such lists being circulated on the social media are fake and bogus.
Jammu and Kashmir finance Minister Haseeb Drabu on Friday rejected the reports that the government has issued any list of the daily wagers who have been regularized, terming such an act a handiwork of some mischievous elements.
On Social media on Friday, a list of the regularized daily wagers was posted which became instantly viral in Kashmir. Same created abuzz in both urban as well as the rural areas of the state with people in a fix over the authenticity of such a list.
He clarified that no such official lists have yet been formulated or finalized by the Government at any level as the extensive process for regularization of these workers has just been rolled-out.
Terming the list posted on Social Media as baseless, he said that some rumor mongers in a bid to create chaos have uploaded the list of regularized daily wagers of the state. “I have already mentioned that the department is examining the cases and only after the budget session is over, the government would initiate the process of regularization,” Drabu said.
He said the law enforcing agencies have been asked to identify and initiate strict action against these mischief-mongers.
The finance minister added further that strict action will be taken against the person who has done the mischief and that the government has initiated the probe into the matter.
“However, I would like to suggest people not pay any heed to the rumor mongers and wait for the government process to finish vis-a-vis the regularization of the daily wagers in Jammu and Kashmir,” Drabu.
