Srinagar: Public health Engineering (PHE) Joint Employees Association held a protest at PHE office on Thursday, demanding release of their pending wages and regulations.
Employees while talking to media said, “daily wagers and casual labourers are used as scapegoats by the Chief Engineer for his post as he wants to sacrifice innocent PHE employees.”
In an official statement the protesters said that this is the first phase of their protest to demand release of our pending wages.
“The funds which have been approved by J and K government for clean drinking water for the people have not been utilised as it should be due to incompetent Chief Engineer,” they said.
The protesters appealed to the government to make a commission to check the utilization of funds.
“If government will not take any action and will not release our wages within a week we will come on roads with our families and continue our protests,” they said. (KNO)
