PHE daily wagers/casual workers here on Wednesday sat on dharna in front of tehsil office Majalta and were demanding release of their 48 months pending salary.
The workers during dharna raised slogans against the government and warned that they will continue to sit on strike till demands are fulfilled.
The workers also said that authorities are acting as mute spectators without understanding our requirements especially on the eve of Diwali festival.
While hearing about the new of dharna by PHE workers , Ranbir Singh Pathania, MLA Ramnagar rushed to the dharna site and assured the striking employees that they will get their salary by today evening.
While striking the chord with the employees, Pathania also assured them that in the ensuing Legislative session, he will again raise their issues regarding timely release of monthly salary and other related issues and will ask the government to immediately frame a policy regarding the regularization of casual labourers and daily wagers.
After the assurance of Pathania, the employees later lifted up the dharna.
