J&K government must reconsider Order on terminating officials with links to terrorism: CPI(M) leader Tarigami


PTI, Sep 17, 2021, 5:25 PM IST

CPI(M) leader Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami on Friday said the latest Orders of the Jammu and Kashmir administration regarding termination of a government employee’s service for alleged involvement in terrorism and subversion and mandating vigilance clearance for getting passports were arbitrary decisions that are not good in a democracy.

“A government employee is a tool to implement policies of the government. If the same employee is made a suspect by doubting him and putting him in the basket of suspicion repeatedly, it will adversely affect his working and in turn affect overall functioning of the government,” Mr. Tarigami said in a statement.

He said there was already a procedure laid down to deal with any employee involved in anti-national subversive activities and issuing new orders only created an atmosphere of suspicion.

“It seems, because of some ill advice, the J&K administration is resorting to such an unwarranted course and to targeting its employees and thereby putting them under constant fear. If an employee is violating the law, he must be dealt with according to the already laid down procedures, but this type of arbitrary approach is not good in a democracy,” the former MLA added.

Mr. Tarigami said denying anyone a passport based on a vigilance case cannot be a substitute for being found guilty in a court of law.

“One of the most sacred principles of the justice system is that a person is innocent until proven guilty. How can the government deny a passport to an employee on mere registration of a case by vigilance?” he asked.

“The authoritarian orders issued by the administration are against the interests of the people of all the regions and communities. Instead of issuing such orders, the government must ensure that the rights of the people and their livelihood are protected,” the Communist leader added.
