Scores of contractual employees of Mathma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA) today staged a protest in North Kashmir’s Pattan town for demanding Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti’s intervention to seek regular jobs.
Protesters assembled in premises of Block Development Office, Pattan and protested against what they called ‘Government’s non serious attitude’ towards them.
The angry protestors said they have been serving Rural Development Department from past nine years. They said that the Government assured them job policy from time to time but till date they were not given a single written assurance.
They appealed chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to look into it as according to them the concerned Minister has failed to fulfill their demands.
“We the employees demand intervention of Honorable Chief Minister in our issue, otherwise we will take to streets as the minister has delayed and betrayed us by making fake promises till date”, they said.
They demanded swift and positive action as soon as possible while reiterating serious consequence, if government failed to fulfill their demands. (PTK)
