Seeking immediate implementation of the agreement signed between the employees' body and the state government on June 21, the state government employees on the behalf of the Jammu and Kashmir Joint Consultative Committee (JCC) on Friday staged demonstration outside the divisional commissioners office, Jammu.
Led by senior JCC leader Gafoor Dar, hundreds of employees gathered outside divisional commissioner office raised anti-government slogans and warned the government not to test the patience of the employees.
Dar stressed upon the state government not to delay the implementation of the agreement which will ultimately compel the employees to launch decisive agitation to get the demands fulfilled.
"Similar protests were being organised at districts and division level all over the state on Friday. On June 22, state government employees would be observing complete pen-down strike", he said.
He announced that if government fails to announce the implementation of the agreement by June 22, JCC will meet in Srinagar on June 24 to chalk out the future course of action.
Employees are demanding enhancement of retirement age from 58 to 60, regularisation policy for all daily-rated workers, casual labourers engaged after 1994, removal of pay anomalies of clerical cadre and budgetary support to all public sector, corporations to release their salaries and other pending arrears.
