Srinagar: The daily rated consolidated paid workers of Municipal Councils and Committees on Wednesday staged a protest in Press Enclave of Srinagar demanding their inclusion under SRO 520 on humanitarian grounds.
The protest was organized by Urban Local Bodies Employees United Forum with the support of EJAC and was led by Forum president Manzoor Ahmed Pampori.
“Government under SRO 520 have excluded us, despite the fact we have rendered more than 15 to 20 years of service in our institutions,” the protesters said.
