Bathinda, July 20

Members of the Theka Mulazam Sangharsh Committee (Powercom zone Bathinda) have threatened to launch demonstrations against the state government over non-fulfillment of their long-pending demand to regularise their services.

In a press release, Gurvinder Singh, president of the union, said: "Despite rendering their services on meagre salaries for the past many years in the powercom department, their jobs were not regularised by the state government. During the previous SAD-BJP government, the Welfare Act, 2016, was framed, but never implemented owing to the model code of conduct ahead of the election."

"Besides regularisation of jobs, we demand that the government ensures that every contractual worker has a health insurance cover in the wake of Covid-19. If the government fails to fulfil our demands, we will intensify our stir in the coming weeks," added Singh.
