All Jammu and Kashmir PanchayatConference (AJKPC), an amalgam of various panchayat bodies, on Sunday claimed MGNREGA workers in the state have not got their dues and warned that they will hit the street if wages, which are "running into crores", are not paid in 15 days.

"Omar-led JK coalition government has failed to clear liabilities under Mahatama Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA)," president, AJKPC, Anil Sharma told reporters here today.

Sharma said this is not only violation of MGNREGA guidelines and Labour Laws but also amounts to human rights violation.
