National Conference has raised serious concern over the burning issue of daily wagers who are on a strike for the last more than three months and are lurching for their genuine rights since the past so many years.
In a statement issued in Jammu, JKNC Jammu President Rattan Lal Gupta said that the Modi government, despite giving assurances to the daily wagers community, has done nothing to bail out this unfortunate segment of workers from the years’ long misery.
He said that main issue of regularization must be met immediately. Moreover this hapless segment of society has been victimized by denying the monthly remuneration for months together leaving the workers and their poor families on the mercy of circumstances because under prevailing record breaking inflation, sustaining livelihood without pay and perk is next to impossible.
“Denying timely pay and keeping them in dark on the issue of regularization is nothing but sheer injustice”, he said adding that BJP government has assured that it will ensure the regularization of daily wagers on priority but like all other promises this one also proved out to a big Jumla of saffron party.—KMS
