Baramulla: Scores of contractual employees working under Saakshar Bharat Mission staged a protest at Carraippa Park Baramulla on Saturday demanding their regularization.
The protesting employees working under central project sought “sympathetic consideration” from government similar to those of state daily wagers and casual labourers.
Stating that there was no clear job policy for them, the employees said that besides performing their legitimate duties, they have been “supporting” various government departments.
“Government ignored us completely as there is no job policy for us. From six to seven years we are serving the department by various means like academic support in schools, Aadhar duty, Election duty, CAPD duty and BLO duty, besides our legitimate duty,” president of the SBM employees said.
The protesting employees later submitted a memorandum to Deputy Commissioner Baramulla Nasir Ahmad Naqash who assured them to take up their matter with higher authorities.
