PHE daily-wagers stage protest in Bandipora
Demand release of wages
Bandipora, June 14: Daily-wagers of the Public Health Engineering (PHE) department staged protests here on Tuesday to press for release of their pending wages.
Hundreds of PHE daily wagers boycotted their work and staged demonstrations in front of the PHE sub-division office demanding release of their pending wages for past six months.
“Due to inordinate delay in payment of our wages, we are on the verge of starvation. We had apprised the senior PHE officers of the matter but they failed to come to our rescue,” they said.
The daily wagers said that due to non payment of wages their families are also suffering. “During past few months, I had to borrow money from a relative to pay school fees of my children. I have exhausted all my financial resources and have no money now to finance my children’s education due to indifferent attitude of the PHE authorities,” Abdul Hameed, a daily wager said.
The Executive Engineer PHE, Mukhtar Ahmed said the records pertaining to the daily wagers is under the investigation of the Crime Department.
“Though the Department has received the funds for the wages, we can’t make the payments without permission from the Chief engineer,” he said.
