Cutting across the party lines, members of district development councils in Jammu & Kashmir, on Tuesday, staged protests against the government’s orders about their honorarium and protocol at Jammu where they had gathered to attend a training programme organized by the Rural Development Department.

Elected DDC members from BJP, NC, PDP, Congress, PC and other parties staged protests outside the convention centre over their honorarium and protocol, saying it was humiliation to them.

“This is our insult and humiliation,” Shabir Ahmad Lone, DDC member from Rohama Rafiabad told the news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO)

He said that they will resign en-masse if the government will not revoke the orders. 

Muzaffar Ahmad Dar, DDC member from Tujjar Sharief said that all the DDC members have gathered outside the Jammu convention Centre to protest against the government’s orders about  their protocol and honorarium.

“We were told that DDC members will be given powers at par with the MLAs, but the bureaucrats don’t want it to happen. They have issued orders without consulting us,” he said.

The administration of Jammu & Kashmir Union Territory amended its warrant of precedence yesterday, placing chairpersons of district development councils equivalent to administrative secretaries and inspector generals of police. (KNO)
