In Jammu and Kashmir daily wagers of different departments continuously raising their voices for their demands but till date their demands are unsettled
While talking to JKnewspoint, PHE Employees Unite Front Member HoshiarChib said we have four main demands firstly it is regularization, secondly implementation of minimum wages act in J&K on central pattern, third is release of pending wages and lastly 12 vouchers rider.
We have clearly told to administration that we are working from past 25 years and these are our main demands that govt should take it seriously. We have given memorandum to all the govt timely which came in power and gone but still our demands areunresolved he added.
If we see conditions of daily wagers 25 years back it was still far better, but today we are at our worst.
People who are giving their duties in these departments from past 25 to 30 years have not been given any policy. From past 25 years they have constituted committees to look into matter but they have just used us for the vote of bank and still our issues have not been addressed by these committees, HoshiarChib added.
He further added that few days’ back Lt Governor gave a statement that militants who will do surrender will be given benefits and jobs but what about us who are serving in department from last 25 years. It seems like Lt. Governor Manoj Sinha wants to give a new track to us to hold guns in our hand as well.
We request to Lt. Governor to take our demands seriously because now it’s about the future of our children. If govt. Keep on showing such ignorance then we will come on roads with our families and will boycott services if our demands are not fulfilled, he said.
JammuAndKashmir Casual labours United Front, President TanveerHussain told us that “we are those Warriors that are working for people and giving them basic facilities like water electricity since from 1994 but when it comes to think about our policies and wages then no one comes forward to talk about that.
He further added that during this pandemic,administration has just given us Corona passes and instrument in our hands but no safety gadgets have been provided to us.
We never wanted to do agitation in this pandemic but govtattitude towards our demands is forcing us to do.We only want that policy makers should sit and think about us, he added.
Few days back in Samba also PHE daily Wagers staged protest for their demands, one of daily Wagers said we are not able to give school fees of our students. It’s are last warning to the administration to look into matter otherwise we have to come on roads with our families.
