Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir family welfare, Mother and Child Health (MCH) and Immunization employees on Monday staged a protest demonstration in this capital city seeking release of their long pending wages.

The employees under the banner of Female Multipurpose Workers Association  assembled at Press Colony here this morning and staged anti-government demonstrations, witnesses told Kashmir Reader. Apart from demanding pending salaries of last six months, the protesting employees also sought merger of plan (technical) employees of central sponsored scheme with the non-plan(non-technical) central sponsored scheme.

The protesting employees allege the administration of “favouritism” regarding the release of salaries of non-plan employees and holding the salaries of plan employees of the same department.

“The salaries of non-plan employees have been released while our salaries are still held because we are women employees,” Association vice president, Mehmooda Begum said.
