SRINAGAR: Peoples Conference senior leader Raja Aijaz Ali has expressed concern over contentious recruitment of non-state subjects by defense labor procurement in Uri. “The recruitment of labor by director defense labor procurement has raised eyebrows in Bonyar, Uri as the news of labor being brought in from Jammu and from outside the state is being spread in the area. Unfortunately, the graduates and highly qualified youth of Uri have started looking for such a humble position which otherwise was the only source for school drop outs and unskilled labor”, he said in a statement.
Aijaz said that if the information of persons being engaged from outside the area has any truth, it is going to deprive the local population of its due right, as such may result into agitation by locals and resultantly impacting the synergy between forces deployed and locals. Aijaz said that PC will take up the matter with Div/Corps Headquarters. “It is a matter of concern as, such the senior formation of army in the area must intervene and initiate remedial measures”, he added.
