NMC urges Par­lia­men­tar­i­ans to raise is­sues of daily rated work­ers

The Northlines - - STATE - NL Cor­re­spon­dent Jammu Tawi, Jul 23

Na­tional Maz­door Con­fer­ence (NMC) on Sunday urged to raise issue of reg­u­lar­iza­tion of nearly sixty one thou­sands daily rated work­ers work­ing in the var­i­ous de­part­ments of the State gov­ern­ment in cur­rent mon­soon ses­sion of par­lia­ment. So that work­ing class could get sigh of re­lief. Ad­dress­ing the meeting, Subash Shas­tri, pres­i­dent NMC ap­pealed to these par­lia­men­tar­i­ans to raise the issue of grant­ing of special pack­age to tune of Ru­pees 9000 cores to ward off ex­penses on ac­count of reg­u­lar­iza­tion and pay­ment of ar­rears of 7th pay com­mis­sion to the em­ploy­ees of the state Govt. and pen­sion­ers in one go. He sug­gested that a del­e­ga­tion of par­lia­men­tar­i­ans from Jammu & Kash­mir should visit Prime Min­is­ter res­i­dence to draw home the point be­sides Union Fi­nance Min­is­ter.

He re­minded these par­lia­men­tar­i­ans and rep­re­sen­ta­tives that sixty one thou­sand daily rated work­ers, nearly 4,50000 state gov­ern­ment em­ploy­ees and 1,00000 pen­sion­ers gave a clear man­date on this and other issue which paved the way for them to get elected to par­lia­ment. They should not ig­nore these sen­ti­ments. The work­ers and em­ployee con­stituency com­mands nearly 80% of the to­tal elec­torate, he added.

Shas­tri also pleaded the cause of both centre as well as state gov­ern­ment em­ploy­ees and pen­sion­ers, de­mand­ing at least 7% DA due from July 1,2017 to be re­leased in fa­vor of the em­ploy­ees of the state gov­ern­ment and pen­sion­ers in view of sharp in­crease in the prices of es­sen­tial com­modi­ties and in­fla­tion.
