Panthers Party protests in support of workers of tourism deptt

Panthers Party leaders staged a massive demonstration against Tourism Deptt seeking release of long pending wages and regularisation of services of DRWs, Need based workers and Casual labourers working in Tourism Development Authorities (TDAs).
Lambasting the Tourism Department for its nonchalant attitude towards the DRW’s, Need based workers and Casual labourers working in various Tourism Development Authorities in the State, they revealed that the Department of Tourism, J&K being the main developmental, promotional and regulatory arm of the J&K Government had set up Tourism Development Authorities to speed-up infrastructure development in selected tourist resorts Surinsar, Mansar, Patnitop, Parmandal, Utterbehni, Sarthal, Rajouri, Poonch, Bhaderwah, Kishtwar, etc.
He regretted that these Authorities had employed thousands of DRWs(Daily Rated Workers), Need based workers and Casual labourers all across State who were forced to work like bonded labourers without paying their meager wages for the last more than 18 months.
