Srinagar: Public Health Engineering employees protests to release their salaries

Srinagar: Daily-wages workers of Public Health Engineering department on Thursday staged a protest against governer administration to press their demand for the release of their payment.

The protest was unique as the protesters were joined by their kids who carried banners in their hands and some of those reads: “we want justice,” “pay our fathers so that they can send us to school’s” and “Please release pending wages of our fathers.”

The protesters alleged that the PHE department has held their salaries from more than two years and are fooling them by claiming that the file of their salaries is lying in the finance department.

They said that their wards are being rusticated from their schools since they failed to pay their tuition fee, now they are with no option except keeping their children at home and deprive them schooling.
