The president of Urban Local bodies employees united forum, Manzoor Ahmad Pampori said: “We are working in the department from last 20 years on meagre wages. We have been requested the government from time to time for regularisation but the government has never paid any attention towards us.”
A protester said the state government is going to permanent the services of all those daily wagers and casual labourers who have completed 15 years of service in any department. “We are demanding the state government to permanent our services us under our department’s own SRO 64,” said Fayaz Ahmad, one of the daily wager working in Municipal Committee Tangmarg.
