Srinagar: All Jammu and Kashmir Public Health Engineering (PHE) under the banner of Industrial Training Institute (ITI) trained Workers Association on Saturday held a protest demonstration demanding release of their pending salary and regularization of services.
The protesters first assembled inside the Pratap Park and raised slogans against state government.
Muzamil one of the protestors said, “We are engaged through a proper ordered by the chief secretary. We want justice and are engaged from last ten years. The implementation of this policy is totally not genuine for us. If the government does not revoke this policy, we will come on roads and protest again for it.”
Showkat Ahmad Sheera, president of All JK PHE ITI trained Workers said “we are total against the Bangal job policy in which they have hired an employee for Rs 12000 per month. It is sheer injustice with us.”
However police scuttled their move when they tried to march towards Lal Chowk and arrested scores of them.
