It was decided that this core committee under the name of “Lak Lehar-Punjab for second freedom” will work collectively. The demands of the committee included filling up the vacant posts in various departments, to regularise the employees providing services from long, and to increase the pay scale of the contractual staff.
Piramal Singh said, “If chief minister will not call the union for meeting, and will not assure to fulfill their demands, then they will launch an intensified protest.”
