SAS NA­GAR: With no re­lief in sight, two of the 134 sus­pended clerks of the Pun­jab School Ed­u­ca­tion Board (PSEB) sat on hunger strike de­mand­ing re­in­state­ment.

While in­ten­si­fy­ing their protest al­leg­ing that the Pun­jab gov­ern­ment had failed to give back their jobs de­spite prom­ises made in this re­gard, Rekha Rani and Ra­jan Bala started their hunger strike on Mon­day.

Around 130 dis­missed clerks sit­ting on protest raised slo­gans against the gov­ern­ment and board man­age­ment.

Pres­i­dent of the 134 dis­missed clerks’ union Ragh­bir Singh Rana said, “We are tired meet­ing se­nior of­fi­cials and po­lit­i­cal lead­ers for be­ing re­in­stated as they failed to hon­our our com­mit­ments. Even Pun­jab chief min­is­ter Parkash Singh Badal had agreed in prin­ci­ple dur­ing the cab­i­net meet­ing held on Jan­uary 3 last year but noth­ing has been done since then.”
