JAMMU: National Mazdoor Conference (NMC) urged Governor’s administration to ensure timely disbursement of long pending wages of thousands of daily rated workers working in various departments of the State Government for years together so that this category of working class is in a position to celebrate important upcoming festivals of Navratras, Dussehra, Diwali, Bhaiyya Duj including Karva Chauth and Dhan Teras.
Addressing NMC workers rally here, President NMC, Subash Shastri said that the helpless community of daily rated workers is on the verge of collapse as neither they have been paid regular salaries to look after their families nor in a position to educate their children and provide medicare.
