Don’t send weapons to JK: Tarigami to Delhi
‘Redress issues of labourers’
Srinagar, May 1: State Secretary of Communist Party of India (Marxist) and MLA Kulgam Muhammad Yusuf Tarigami on Tuesday said New Delhi should provide employment to the educated youth and redress the issues of labourers in Jammu and Kashmir “instead of sending arms and ammunition”.
Addressing a protest demonstration in city centre here, Tarigami stressed upon the Government to fulfill the promises made over the years to the working class. He demanded that the workers should be provided job, security and proper wages.
The protest rally was held to commemorate International Labour Day or May Day. Tarigami minced no words in castigating the State Government over what he termed as “its anti-labour policies and programs”.
“While corrupt government is looting the state exchequer, woes of labourers, who are engineers of economic prosperity, are on the increase. Government is not bothered about welfare of labourers,” he said.
Tarigami also called for broader unity among the work class to fight the “neo liberal economic policies”.
“There is no room for any illusion, only united struggles of the toilers can force the government and employers to concede the genuine demands of the working people,” he added.
The CPI (M) leader said International Labour Day is observed to remember the Chicago martyrs, who sacrificed their lives for the struggle to regulate working hours.
