As the Jammu and Kashmir Cements Limited is in dire strait with Rs 150 crore liabilities, the employees of the corporation Wednesday held a protest demonstration demanding the release of their five month pending salary. The protestors under the banner “JKCL employees union” assembled at press enclave here and raised slogans in favour of release of their salaries withheld for past 5 months.

“We have been pushed to the wall by the management of the company. For last five months our salaries are pending,” said general secretary of the union, Javid Ahmad.

 “We are facing worst crisis. Some of us have raised loans that we are unable to pay,” he said. On Tuesday, Greater Kashmir had reported that the government has asked JKCL management to come up with a revival plan for the corporation within a week.
