The employees of State Road Transport Corporation under the Voluntary Retirement Scheme on Monday took out a rally demanding clearance of pending dues and arrears.


The employees attempted to march towards the Civil Secretariat but they were stopped by police, leading to a minor clash.

"We will continue our protest till our demands are met," one of the protestors, Dev Raj Bali, said.

The protesters raised slogans against the government for not clearing their pending dues of cost of living allowance and demanded implementation of Sixth Pay Commission.

They appealed to the state government to consider their demands and said pending dues of all VRS employees should be cleared as soon as possible.
