Bathinda, February 11
Members of the MNREGA Employees Union on Tuesday staged a protest over their pending demands outside the Bathinda Zila Parishad office. The protesters demanded regular jobs under the Panchayats Department.
Varinder Singh, state president of the union, and Sukhvir Singh, district president, in a joint statement, said the members had been demanding regular jobs under the Panchayats Department for long.
They stated that the SAD government had sent a file to the Personal Department, asking it to give the employees regular jobs under the Welfare Act 2016 but after the coming of Congress into power, no attention was paid to their demand. “After we protested against the delay, a committee was constituted by Cabinet Minister Tript Rajinder Singh but it was done only to pacify them,” they said. A protest would be staged at Vikas Bhawan in Mohali on February 26, they said.
