Tarigami criticizes Govt for sacking doc for Facebook post

Senior CPI (M) leader and MLA Kulgam Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami Monday termed the sacking of a doctor in Jammu on the charges of criticizing the government on Facebook against the fundamental rights of a citizen.

The decision to sack a medico for highlighting some issues in the health department is arbitrary. From day one since this Government issued social media diktat under SRO-525, we have been saying it is insult to employees and depicts the regressive mindset of the government. An employee enjoys freedom and speech and expression like any other citizen.

He demanded that the medico should be reinstated immediately.
