The PHE daily wagers are on strike for the more than a month in support of their demand of releasing pending wages of daily wagers.
PHE workers in Kathua have announced that from 15th October they will sit on strike along with their family members and protest against the failure of Government to fulfill their demands.
The workers said that the Government has fooled us and our wages have been withheld for past few years. We are at the verge of starvation. Our kids are forced to drop out of schools because we are unable to pay the fees. We are forced to lend money from other people, thus are under severe debt.
The protestors appealed the Governor to realize their suffering and fulfill their demand at the earliest. They also threatened to intensify protests in case their demand is not met forthwith.
