Bathinda, July 6

Members of the palledar unions staged a protest against the new tender policy of the state government which pertains to their wages.

They took out a protest march from Children’s Park, and on reaching the Deputy Commissioner’s office, they handed over a memorandum addressed to the state government to the tehsildar, demanding continuation of the old tender policy.

Kuldeep Singh, Baldev Singh, Gurdeep Singh and Kaka Singh of the FCI Palledar Union said the new policy of loading, unloading and transportation formulated by the Punjab Government for 2020-21 was “wrong”. In the old policy, the increase in the wage rate of palledars would go above 120 per cent, but in the new policy the increase in the wage rate had been capped at a maximum of 75 per cent.

They said under the policy, the salaried workers would have to work hard for meagre wages. Warning against the implementation of new policy, the protesters said they would intensify the protest against the state government if their demand was not met.
