Srinagar, July 17: MGNREGA Contractual Employees Association who demand absorption in the Rural Development Department has extended their protest till July 23.
The Spokesperson told CNS that a committee under Commissioner Secretary had been constituted that pitched for the changes in recruitment quota. “Those recommendations clearly indicate that there is a job absorption proposal for us. But the callous attitude of the government have been forcing us to protest on daily basis,” he said.
The spokesperson alleged that government wants a temporary resolution to our problems but we want Government to find a permanent solution and get all the contractual employees absorbed in the department. “We deserve other benefits that permanent employees reap under service rules,” he said and urged upon Governor Administration to look into the matter.
