Mandi: MGNREGA workers want dues released

Mandi, September 14

The MGNREGA and Construction Workers’ Union staged a protest march, under the banner of CITU, near the labour office here today.

The workers were demanding the release of their dues that were reportedly pending from the past eight months. The protest was led by Bhupender Singh, district president of CITU.

Bhupender Singh said the payments of workers had been pending for the past eight months. He said application forms of labourers were not being sent to the HP Building and Other Construction Workers Welfare Board at Shimla for the approval of funds for the purpose by the Mandi labour office. He said the labourers were being deprived of the benefits by the state, including scholarship for students and delivery of expectant mothers. — TNS
