A Score of Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) Parks Section workers staged a protest, outside the office of Zonal Commissioner Charminar Zone, GHMC and sought immediate their salaries.
Lady workers reportedly were not being paid of their salaries for the last four months. The matter was taken up with GHMC higher-ups to resolve their problem. But nothing reportedly done to address the issue. So, they have gathered outside the Zonal Commissioner Charminar Zone to register their protest against the apathy of the contractors.
“GHMC Park Section lady workers (who are also called Mali) were not being paid for the last four months. Already, they have meager pay and outstanding salaries, has been a matter of concerned for many workers. Actually, they should have been paid at least Rs 15 thousand, but in return, the contractors and officers not only delay the payment but also paying them insufficient. The officials have assured the workers to resolve the issues, but so far, nothing has been done to address the worker problem,’’ said, Mr. Gopal, Hyderabad City Chairman, BJP Mazdoor Morcha.
He sought GHMC commissioner and Zonal commissioner to take immediate note of the lady workers problem and clear their payment soon. “All the previous contractors must be blacklisted, who are not paying workers on time but even not responding to the higher-ups,’’ added, Mr.Gopal.
