As many as 1207 Tourist Facilitators stage protest in press enclave in Srinagar, demand regularisation.
Younis Wani, President Tourist facilitator Srinagar, said, “We had completed our training in 2016, under a government scheme for tourist facilitators. The then Div Com Srinagar, Bashir Ahmed Khan had promised fastrack recruitment for us. It is 2019, and our issue still remains.”
“We are not backdoor entries, but have done proper training from Institution of Hotel Management. We were assured of jobs immediately after training. We have been waiting for 3 years for our files to be processed,” said another protestor.
They warned the state administration to redress their issue at the earliest, or they’ll be forced to some other means of protest.
