Srinagar, Oct 15: The employees of the State Forest Corporation today held a protest demonstration in support of their demands.
Scores of employees under the banner of All J&K State Forest Corporation Employees Union assembled at Pratap Park here and raised slogans against the Government to press for their demands.
Chanting slogans, the protesters were demanding regularization of daily rated workers, protection of State Forest Corporation, release of pending daily allowances and implementation of Seventh Pay Commission.
The protesters said that the employees are being deprived of their legitimate rights by the State Government by not fulfilling their legal demands. “Government has failed to fulfill our demands despite assurances by the higher authorities. Government has announced Seventh Pay Commission for Government sector but the public sector has been deprived of the seventh pay Commission benefits due to unknown reasons. The daily allowances of the employees are pending after Sixth Pay Commission. We are being forced to come on roads due to non-fulfillment of our demands,” they said
The protesting employees requested the Governor administration to intervene into the matter and fulfill the genuine demands of the employees.
