Bathinda, November 22

Contract staff from various government departments, under the banner of the Theka Mulazam Sanghrash Morcha, today protested the non-fulfillment of their demand for regular jobs, besides announcing full support to farmers’ nationwide protest call on November 26.

Holding black flags and donning black clothes, protesters marched through the city. “It’s ironical that the state government claims to provide one lakh jobs when it’s privatising and restructuring government departments and reducing posts on a large scale. The Congress came to power promising regular jobs to contract workers in government departments. However, it has failed to honour its pre-poll promises,” said Jagrup Singh, a union leader.

Union leaders said they would lend support to farmers by participating in the protest in New Delhi.
