Casual labours associated with Kashmir PHE Joint Employees Association on Monday held a protest demonstration in Srinagar demanding a release of their pending wages.
Chanting slogans, scores of the casual workers and daily wagers assembled in Partap Park to protest against the delay in their wages. Holding placards that read “release our pending monthly wages”, employees sought early redressal of the “grave concern”.
The protestors said that the protest is to remind the promises which the government had made with the labours and daily wagers working in the department. “Our job is to provide clean drinking water to the people and it is the job of government to release our monthly payment on time,” one of the protesting employees said.
