SRTC employees march towards Delhi
Jammu, Nov 26: A day after talks between officials of the government and members of State Road Transport Corporation employees union failed, the workers on Thursday commenced their march towards New Delhi where they would protest outside Parliament House.
Chairman JKSRTC workers union Shakeel Ahmed Kuchay told Greater Kashmir that the employees started their journey to New Delhi on Thursday.
“Some of the employees have already left for New Delhi in the morning and a large number of employees will soon reach the destination,” said Kuchey.
“We wrote to our managing director that we waited for government’s response after the round of talks with the chief secretary but as no response came from the other side we are forced to proceed towards Delhi,” Kuchay said.
He said the employees have been waiting at the railway station for the communiqué from the government side, but there was no official response.
Young children of the SRTC employees who had accompanied them to Jammu from Srinagar were seen carrying their belongings and marching towards the Jammu railway station to catch a train for Delhi.
