To wait for favourable decision till June 26 & boycott all work if demands not met
Protesting against the cabinet sub-committee decision of according six per cent quota to Nayab Tehsildars for promotion to the posts of Sangrah Amin (Bailiffs), members of the Uttarakhand Lekhpal Sangh (ULS) continued their two-hour work boycott on Saturday. None of the demands raised by the ULS has been met in the six-day long protest.
The ULS members, however, ended their protest stating that the employees will wait till June 26 as they have been assured by the officials that something will be done to provide them relief. If the government fails to do so then the employees will undertake a complete work boycott.
Addressing the media on Saturday ULS general secretary Radheshyam Painuly said, “We ended our protest today as decided earlier by us. We talked to cabinet minister Yashpal Arya and others. A meeting is likely to be held on June 26. We will resume work from Monday and will wait for the government’s decision till June 26. If the officials fail to do something about our problem then we will boycott work fully.”
Nearly 2,000 members of the ULS across the state boycotted work for two hours daily for six days in protest. Citizens visiting the Tehsil office for verification of pension, mutation of property and other works faced major inconvenience and delays due to the protest. Many files and works remained pending for a week due to the protest of the employees.
Painuly said, “It is true that people faced major inconvenience all over the state especially elder people as a majority arrived here for pension verification. Considering this, we protested only for two hours daily. As too many people arrived in the office on Friday we completed our protest half an hour early. If nothing is done regarding our demands then we will be left with no other option but to boycott the work fully.”
