Srinagar: Jammu Kashmir Fair Price Employees from Consumer and Public Distribution Department Wednesday staged a protest in support of their multiple demands at Press Enclave Srinagar.
The protesting employees raised anti-government and anti-CAPD Minister slogans. They alleged that CAPD Minister Chowdary Zulifkar Ali is the biggest hurdle in implementing the cabinet order which will pave for their regularization.
The protesting employees told news agency that they will not allow the Department to open up new Fair Price shops until the government doesnt implement the Cabinet order.
If our demands are fulfilled and we are not regularized, we will hit to roads on daily basis, they said and added that the Fair Price employees will stage a massive demonstration against the concerned Minister on May 10 this month.
