Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) on Monday described the recruitment scheme in J&K Bank and Reliance Health Insurance Scheme as ‘big scams’ and sough action against the people behind.JKPCC in the backdrop of these scams staged sit-in protest at M.A. Road, Srinagar and demanded that judicial probe in to the J&K Scam and Reliance Health Insurance be ordered forthwith to unearth the corruption and favoritism, which is at peak in the State.Senior party leaders and workers of Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) according to a statement issued to KNO while protesting raised slogans against the recruitment scam in J&K Bank and urged upon the Governor to “order judicial probe into the scam to ascertain as to why blue-eyed person of PDP and BJP were adjusted and deserving youth were ignored.”The party rejected the claim of higher authorities of J&K Bank that there was no tinkering with the selection list, but at the same time JKPCC emphasized that there should be impartial probe to find out as to what has gone wrong.
The previous PDP-BJP Govt on whose behest the recruitment were made in the prime financial institution cannot escape the responsibility of corruption and favouritsm in the J&K and demanded that probe by sitting High Court Judge be ordered to fix responsibility, as that the corruption has marred the important Institutions in the State, as a result people have lost faith in the system.“Ironically there are tough rules for the J&K Bank Consumers, but no rule for blue eyed persons leading to the large-scale resentment among the people,” they said, adding that the helmsmen in the J&K Bank are living a luxurious life at the cost of the local consumers and it is the responsibility of the Government to look into the frauds done in the Bank and act against the responsible persons in order to restore the confidence among the people.Referring to Reliance Health Insurance Scam, they said “the same Company that has been established seven days before cracking Rafael Jet Deal to benefit Ail Ambani & Company, astonishing, the same company with the help of some people in the Administration in the State misled people especially employees of the State on Health Insurance Scheme”.The party also demanded that those responsible behind Reliance Health Insurance be identified and brought to book.The protest was led by General Secretary Surinder Singh Channi, DCC resident Irfan Naqib, Shameema Iqbal, G.A.
