Srinagar, May 17: Former Cabinet Minister and Apni Party senior vice-president Ghulam Hassan Mir Tuesday urged the government to ensure the stalled wages of casual labourers, who are engaged in the Department of Command Area Development (CAD) of agriculture, are released immediately.
According to a statement, a delegation of casual labourers called on Gulam Hassam Mir at the Apni Party headquarters in Srinagar and requested him to raise their issue of halted wages with the concerned authorities.
The members of the delegation informed the AP leader that they along with their families are suffering because of delays in their wages.
Gulam Hassan Mir appealed the concerned authorities to release the pending salaries to these poor workers.
He said that the way other departments are paying the wages to workers without any hindrance, these workers too should be paid their wages on time.
He urged the concerned officials to utilize various government schemes to ensure these poor fellows get their dues.
The delegation informed the AP leader that earlier they too would draw their wages under the projects that are being executed, but now the process has been stopped and casual labourers eventually are forced to suffer.
Mir said that those who are at the helm of affairs must understand that these poor laborers live hand to mouth, and stopping their wages means causing misery to them and their families.
