CPI (M) state secretary and MLA, Muhammad Yousuf Tarigami has asked the government to release wages of the need based workers and casual labourers of various government departments forthwith.
Tarigami in his communiqué said, this hapless lot had been put to tremendous hardships despite toiling hard in pressing circumstances. Voicing concern over their plight, Tarigami urged upon the government to release the wages of these labourers on the auspicious day of Eid-ul-Fitr.
“It was irony of sorts that these workers are not being paid even minimum wages.” He demanded safeguarding their service interests besides timely release of their remunerations.
Recalling the government of its commitment made with the PDD daily wagers for release of their wages, Tarigami observed that it seems the present government believes in making deceptive commitments to buy time and avoid the crisis.
