CITU district president Narender and union president Jan Muhammad jointly led the rally. They warned the government that they would to sit on ‘dharna’ if their demands were not accepted soon.

The union raised their main demands which included timely payment of salary, regularisation on the basis of seniority, regularisation of employees who had completed their tenure, issue of muster-roll every month and implementation of labour laws.

These leaders said the Forest Department had not paid salary to any of their employees since March 2021, due to which they were facing financial problems. They opposed the move of the department for retrenching the employees working for 20 years. — OC
