Srinagar, May 8 (UNI) Urging employees unions to use democratic means of dialogue to settle issues, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Secretary B R Kundal said redressal of genuine problems confronted by the employees was under active consideration of the government.
However, all the factors including financial constraints had to be weighed before giving the final shape to such considerations, he said.
Scores of employees were injured when police resorted to baton charge to disperse them during the two-day strike from May 5, when offices of Chief Minister, his cabinet colleagues and bureaucrats were reopened in the summer capital.
The Employees Joint Action Committee (EJAC) had given 20 day ultimatum to government to concede to their demands or face indefinite strike.
Addressing a farewell function organised by the Civil Secretariat Non-gazetted Employees Union to bid adieu to the outgoing Director Estates B A Roniyal and welcome the new Director A R Kuchay, the Chief Secretary asked the unions to follow the footprints of those which make their view points felt in an amicable manner.
Mr Kundal said instead of resorting to the undemocratic means of violence and street fighting, employees unions should use democratic means of dialogue to settle issues.
He said the government always focused on mitigating the problems of the employees and their welfare.
