Srinagar: Pleading for regularization, casual labourers working under Urban Local body of Municipal Corporation on Wednesday assembled at Press Enclave here and held a protest demonstration.
“We are working in the corporation for the last 14 years on meager wages. We have been requesting for regularization but the government has not paid any heed so far”, the protesters told media persons.
Abdul Hamid Peer while carrying a broom in his hand said that “We are poor people working day and night in extreme conditions but the government has never taken us seriously.”
He also said that the wages they are being provided are not sufficient for their livelihood.
“We are around 3500 workers, despite working round the clock . Our services were never acknowledged by the government,” said Shabir Ahmed. (Kashmir Wire)
