SRINAGAR: Former Minister and chairman Democratic Party Nationalist Ghulam Hassan Mir has asked state government to release the pending salary of employees working under SSA, Aaganwadi workers, casual workers and other daily on Eid-ul-Fitr eve.
In a statement, Mir also condemned the use of force by police on the protesting employees “who are without salaries for many months. “This government highhandedness is unacceptable.”
Mir said that on one hand state government is making lofty claims of receiving huge funds from Central Government but on the other hand are making the employee suffer in want of salary. “Why doesn’t the state government release pending salaries of the employees when it claims to have received money from New Delhi,” he said, adding the poor employees are made to suffer unnecessarily, that too on the eve of Eid
