“We are demanding regularisation since 2005, as huge number of seats are vacant in the department and all of us are engaged on contractual basis. During the protest at Jammu on Dec 2017, we were assured about fulfilment of all over demands by the government very soon but nothing happened so far,” Shanwaz said.
The protesters have threatened to intensify the strike if their demands are not considered by the government. Their demands include regularisation of services,filling up of vacancies and other government benefits.
