Srinagar: A huge protest demonstration on Monday was held by daily-wagers demanding their regularization and release of pending wages.
“We want to be regularized as per SRO-381 rather than SRO-520,” said Abdul Hameed Khanday, Union Spokesperson. “We do our duties round the clock but still our wages are not paid regularly every month. Our wages are not released by the department on time,” he added.
The protesters don’t want implementation of SRO-520 in the regularization case rather they demanded their regularization process should be covered under SRO-381, as the concerned PDD has done for the previous daily wagers in regularizing them after being daily wagers for seven years in the department.
The protesters claimed that the concerned PDD is implementing SRO-520 by force on the daily wagers; despite they have been serving the department for seven years, which is mandatory for their regularisation under SRO-381.
The protesting daily wagers claimed that despite having SRO-381 in the PDD and PDC, the administration is implementing SRO-520 forcibly. The protesters said that the Department is doing total injustice with them.
The protestors said that they are made to move from pillar to post for fulfillment of their long pending wages.
They appealed Governor NN Vohra to intervene and take a decision in favor of daily wagers.
The protesters threatened to go for indefinite power shut strike if their demands are not met at the earliest.
