Patiala, December 5

Demanding regularisation of their jobs, contractual employees of the state-owned Pepsu Road Transport Corporation (PRTC) and Punjab Roadways on Sunday called for an indefinite strike from December 7.

The contractual employees union of the PRTC and Punjab Roadways said that the government despite several assurances had failed to fulfill their genuine demands. The protesting employees claimed that Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi and transport minister over the past few weeks had given assurance to regularise their services in the next Cabinet meeting. Cabinet meeting took place, however, nothing happened in the said meeting which showed that the government was not serious and adopting dilly- dallying tactics.

Resham Singh Gill, president, PRTC and Punjab Roadways Contractual Employees Union, said, “We will go on indefinite strike from December 7. Besides, we have decided to stage a protest outside the residence of Chief Minister Channi, on the following day. We will protest wherever the Chief Minister and ministers hold any programme in future.” — TNS
