Tarn Taran, May 31
On the call of state employees’ association, members of the District DC Office Employees’ Association organised a protest against the state government at the District Administration Complex (DAC) here on Monday. The employees of the DC, SDM, and tehsil offices on Monday went on a mass casual leave for an indefinite period.
The employees were on protest for the last 10 days. Karwinder Singh Cheema, district president; Sukhwinder Singh, Rajwinder Singh, Beant Kaur, Harjit Kaur, Kiran Bala and other leaders of the employees, while addressing on the occasion, condemned the state government for not implementing the accepted demands of the employees.
The leaders demanded implementation of the pay commission report, departmental promotions and early release of DA allowance.
The leaders alleged that the indifferent attitude of Manpreet Singh Badal, Finance Minister, was the main hindrance in the implementation of the demands.
