Daily wagers, casual
labourers seek regularisation

Srinagar, Nov 15: The daily wagers working with different departments on Sunday sought regularization of their
services.

In a statement, the daily wagers urged the Lt Governor,
anoj Sinha for adopting a comprehensive policy for regularisation of daily wagers and
casual labourers employed in various departments.

A group of daily wagers called on the social activist, Inam Un Nabi to seek his support for fulfilling their demand.

Nabi asserted that a good number of daily
wagers have been working relentlessly in various departments for the last over two
decades.

“Unfortunately, the successive governments have
failed to address their genuine demands, compelling them to
go for frequent strikes,” he said.

Nabi said when the whole world was battling COVID19
these temporary employees were engaged in public ser-
vice, risking their lives.

“The government should regularize
their services because majority of them have completed
more than seven years of services,” he said, demanding that Minimum Wages Act should
be implemented in Jammu and Kashmir so that these casual
labourers and daily wagers should get wages.

He demanded that till their regularization, the government
should not only release wages of all such hapless workers but
also enhance the same as per the Act, in vogue across the
country.
