New Delhi /July, 30 : National Conference MP has given “ Zero Hour” notice to raise issues of grave concern to people of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh. The issues relate to plight of eighty thousand daily rated, casual, need based Workers that constitute backbone of key departments like PDD, PHE, Forest, Wildlife, Fisheries etc. Masoodi has stated that the Workers are waiting for their regularisation for decades and forced to live on meagre wages that also remain in arrears for months together. Masoodi has also highlighted the uncertainty faced by 172 CIC operators of Rural Development Department and demanded their regularisation at the earliest.
NC MP has also raised issue of manpower deficiency in healthcare care institutions across Jammu and Kashmir and in particular South Kashmir. Making pointed reference to the instances of deficiencies in Hospitals at all levels, Masoodi has stated the PHC Kapran, Verinag, and Covid Hospital at Check Wangnoo Qazigund are without services of a single doctor.

The situation is no different elsewhere. He has demanded fast track recruitment at all levels. Masoodi has drawn attention of the LG and Chief Secretary to plight of hundreds of trained unemployed dental surgeons protesting at Jammu for months and exhorted the LG administration to clear the proposal for sanction of more than 500 dental surgeon vacancies, so that their services strengthen the healthcare system.
