Scores of the employees who assembled in Press Enclave Srinagar alleged that Education Department miserably failed to address their genuine grievances.

“We are being directly recruited under SRO 308 but only a few reap benefits under it. Since 2011, we have not been provided wages under Minimum Wages Act,” they said.

The protesting employees said that they have served the department day in day out and even during the crisis the government avails their service.

They appealed the higher authorities to look into the matter and address their problems. (CNS)
