Srinagar, Nov 06 : The Jammu and Kashmir state road transport employees staged protest in Srinagar on Saturday demanding release of pending dues.
Talking to news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO), the SRTC employees Union President Muhammad Ashraf Khanday said that they are protesting to demand for release of pending dues which they haven’t received since past 11 years.
“Almost 750 employees were appointed under SRTC/VRS, GHS scheme which was provided by government in which it has been stated whosever will be appointed in SRTC/VRS/GHS will get all rights within two months but unfortunately till now we have received only 60% of dues and 40% are still pending. Even bills for the same have been already prepared in SRTC and civil secretariat but it’s very unfortunate that two departments like finance department and department of SRTC sits on this very sensitive issue,” he said.
He said that they had left jobs only after they were promised that their all pending dues will be released. “We request LG Manoj Siinha and Advisor R R Bhatnagar to resolve our issues on fast track basis,” Khanday said—(KNO)
