AAP concerned over high-handedness with daily wagers in Jammu

Accusing Bhartiya Janta Party of cornering poor daily wagers of different departments and killing their voice using sticks of police, Aam Aadmi Party has expressed serious concern over high-handedness with the protesting daily wagers in Jammu terming it a clear sign of dictatorship.
The party further promised that all the daily wages in Jammu and Kashmir will be regularised on the pattern of Punjab if the Aam Aadmi Party is voted to power.
In order to step-in for support of poor daily wagers on protest in Jammu, besides other employees of different departments, a delegation of AAP visited the dharna site of Jal Shakti Department daily wagers in Jammu and assured the protesters on strike that party stands with them in this tough time and will make all possible efforts to help them.
AAP later held a press conference in which DDC member and party’s senior leader TS Tony told media persons that a clear picture of dictatorship is going on these days on the roads of Jammu where Government is using police to corner poor daily wagers and killing their genuine voice.
“BJP earlier showed them castles in air and it’s leaders were seen making big statements in media in favour of daily wagers and now BJP leaders are missing from scene and poor daily wagers are cornered and are getting sticks of police and are thrashed, manhandled, choked on the dictation of BJP Government which is now hell bent to crush the voice of their poor workers.” Tony said.
He added, “Daily wagers are not asking for something out of this plant. They are demanding things under the moon and which were promised with them and is this a fault of a poor worker that he is demanding handsome honorarium for his work and to live a life where he can ensure the study of his children and manage three meals for them.”
Tony further said that there are thousands of daily wagers in different departments who are performing their duties with dedication since decades and are in the aged period of life and expect things from this Government which however is looking the other way and is putting police in front of protesting workers.
He said that people of Jammu and Kashmir should understand that the daily wagers on the roads are the workers who provide basic facilities like electricity, water on a daily basis and it becomes the responsibility of every citizen to extend moral support to them.
He further said that Aam Aadmi Party is always concerned about daily wagers and this can be gauged from the party’s decision to regularise daily wagers in Punjab and we promise that in Jammu and Kashmir, Aam Aadmi Party will regularise all daily wagers if voted to power.
