Subash Rakwal (Gen Secy) Bhanu Partap, Sanjeev Thakur etc participated in the “Jail bharo Andolan “. The protesters were briefly detained by the police. Addressing the leadership during the protest Tanveer Hussain (State President ) said that it is very shameful that daily wagers are on roads for wages of workers since last one week but none of the administrator from the department has shown his concern for our genuine issues. He said government failed to keep their promise of releasing salary on EiD and Raksha Bandan. He said 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.
Tanveer said that government should immediately release all the pending wages of the daily wagers without any delay. He said that during announcement of SRO it was assured that proper wages head will be informed and daily wagers will get regular salaries without any delay but it was just eye wash of government and we are suffering a lot. He demanded government should keep their promise and should release all salaries and we announce clearly that there will be no compromise by association on pending salaries and our strike will continue until all pending wages are released.
