Srinagar, Oct 13, KNT: Casual Labourers working in Jammu Kashmir Tourism Department Tuesday refuted the claims made by Director Tourism that Casual Labourers have been terminated in 2014 and they are no more affiliated with the Department.
Addressing a press conference here in Srinagar, President Kashmir Tourism Department Casual Labourers Union, Kaisar Ahmed said that the Director’s claim is utterly false and far from truth.
