Alleging discrimination and suppression of agitating daily wagers by Congress-National Conference (NC) coalition government in Jammu and Kashmir, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) workers today burnt the effigy of Chief Minister Omar Abdullah.
Led by party candidate from Samba constituency, Sunny Sangral protesters alleged that poor daily wagers who are not being paid for months are being victimized by the state government. He blamed government for the crisis forcing people to face drinking water shortage for last 72-hours across Jammu and other major towns of the region.
Sangral expressed his anguish against the anti-people policies being followed by the State Government and failure to start regularization process of the daily wagers who were promised regularization in the department. Sangral has warned to block National Highway if government fails to solve the issue of the protesting PHE daily wagers and ensure that people get drinking water supply.
“People are suffering because of the policy of government. We demand that Omar government should fulfill the promise made to the PHE daily wagers for regularization”, Sangral said.
PDP has demanded early solution to the problems of the daily wagers so that people don’t face problems as most of the residential colonies are not getting water for last two days, which has created worst situation for the common man.
Sangral said that problems of daily wagers are genuine as for several years thousands of youth are working on meager payment to ensure the masses get water supply. PHE workers union president, Swarn Singh was also present on the occasion.
