Daily wagers forum threatens assembly gherao on Jun 17

All Jammu and Kashmir Casual and Daily Wagerís Forum on Tuesday decided to gherao the state assembly on Jun 17 against the alleged regularization of some blue eyed candidates.

General Secretary of the forum, Nayeem Rizwan Bhat said that the association has decided to protest against the government for ìregularizing the causal and daily wagers who were appointed in the year 2007 and 2010.

He said that daily wagers and casual labourers who have been appointed since 1994 have not been regularized so far while the government has decided to regularize those who are affiliated with PDP or BJP thereby leaving 60,000 families in the lurch.

Bhat urged state government to not to take any discriminative step, which would force the employees to take to streets.

Pertinently, PHE daily wagers held a protest on Monday against what they termed as governmentís ëimminent decisioní during which police used water cannons to thwart their protest march.

Scores of protesting daily wagers were also detained by the police during the protest that was held outside the PHE head office at Exchange road.
