SRINAGAR: The PHE Joint Employees Association held a protest here on Tuesday demanding release of their wages and regularisation of services.
Scores of casual labours, dailywagers and land donors working with the Public Health Engineering department assembled at the Pratap Park and marched towards the Press Enclave.
The protestors held placards reading “Amend SRO 520″, ” Release our pending wages,” “Regularise our services,” “Consider working months instead of payment months,” and chanted slogans against authorities for not releasing their wages.
Chairman of the association, Sajad Ahmad Parray said their wages were not being released by the department.
“We are facing financial problems due to which the studies of our children have been worst affected. We are unable to pay the coaching fee of our children,” Parray said.
He added that they are also demanding the regularistion of services under SRO 520.
The protesters requested the Governor Satya Pal Malik to look into the matter.
