Srinagar, May 01 (KNO) : Scores of casual labours under the banner of J&K Agricultural Casual Labours Association held a protest at Press enclave Srinagar on Wednesday. The protesters demanded regularization of their jobs and also release of their pending wages. Mohammed Yousuf Wani, State President of the Association told KNO, the government was playing delaying tactics regarding settlement of SRO-520 and release of wages on monthly basis. Yousuf said that regularisation policy for all casual labours under SRO-520 should be implemented on fast track basis. “SRO 520 must be reviewed. Besides, wages of our casual labours are pending since last three years the Governor administration is failing to release our wages,” he said, adding that wages should be release on monthly basis. “We have already given sufficient time to Governor Administration for consideration but unfortunately no one is paying heed,” he added. They urged Governor Administration to release their pending wages and regularize all casual labours. (KNO)
