Jammu, 5 May:
The employees of the Municipal Corporation are going on a strike starting today and the protests have started with a bang where major parts of the city have been polluted by residential garbage allegedly thrown on the roads by the Safai Karamcharis.
The employees began with protests outside speaker Kavinder Gupta’s official residence and then marched on foot and two wheelers towards Apsara Road and Gol Market areas.
The employees demanded a re-election of the department. They also want scrapping of the NGO system, deployment of municipal employees in wards instead of parking lots, regularization of contractual drivers and assurance of DPC promotion orders of municipal employees of various cadres.
After the authorities failed to meet these demands, the employees have gone on a strike from today.
