Jammu, Sept 7: All Jammu and Kashmir PHE ITI Trained CP workers and Land Donars Association today staged protest demonstration, demanding pending wages.
The protest was led by Tanveer Hussain and the rally was attended by various division/district presidents and general secretaries along with the central committee including Deepak Gupta (V.President), Subhash Rakwal (Gen Secy), Bhanu Partap, Sanjeev Thakur etc.
Addressing the workers Tanveer said that wages of workers have not been paid since last many months and PHE daily wagers are struggling very hard to meet their both ends. He said government failed to keep their promise of releasing salary on Eid or Raksha Bandan because of which we are left with no other option than to go for "Kaam Chodo Hartal" from today.
He said that they have given so many ultimatums to government but nothing has been done for them. He said that everyone need wages to do work, we and our families are starving but department has no seriousness towards our issues. He said that now when we are left with no option other than "Kaarn Chodo Hartal" our department and government will be completely responsible for this.
