Reasi: Apni Party Vice President Aijaz Ahmed Khan on Thursday urged the Govt to release pending wages of 66 PHE daily wagers in Reasi district’s Dharmari Division.
In a statement to the press, a deputation of PHE daily wagers led by Dhani Ram called on Aijaz Ahmed Khan. The deputation appraised Khan that the wages of 66 PHE daily wagers have not been released by the department concerned.
The deputation alleged that these 66 daily wagers have not received their wages from the last two months.
“The fault of department officials should not be fixed on the daily wagers. The Govt should immediately release their pending wages,” said Aijaz Khan.
He said that “The hard work of these daily wagers make the schemes of the Govt successful on the ground.
If they are ignored, and their salaries are withheld, it is not possible to function properly for any department.”
He also sought intervention of Lt Governor Manoj Sinha and appealed that the daily wagers should be regularized, minimum wage act should be implemented in J&K for the welfare of the daily wagers.
“The Govt should consider the regularization of daily wagers on propriety,” he demanded.
