All department casual labor today staged a protest in Jammu with a demand to release their salaries. Last year also they protested and at that time the J&K LG assured them that after the DDC elections the government will release their salaries but till now no one has received a salary.
While talking to the media a male protestor said “last time when we had a meeting with J&K LG in the presence of BJP MP Jugal Kishor Sharma and BJP Jammu Party President Ravinder Raina he assured us that we will receive our salary after the DDC election. Today we have staged a protest at the Press Club to remind the LG of his assurance. And if our demands are not fulfilled by the government then we will celebrate the black day on 26th January when the whole of India will celebrate Republic Day because now we are struggling to look after our family”.
Another protestor said, “from the past 30 years we are struggling for our salaries. Now we will fight for ourselves and now it’s not only the fight of daily workers but also the Junior engineers and executive engineers”.
