Veterinary workers detained

Police detained several workers of the state animal husbandry and veterinary department at the dharna site on Monday while they were holding protest in front of the directorate office demanding government steps to regularize their jobs. They alleged that despite repeated appeal the governmenthas been failing to address their issues. Their salary amounts are inadequate and that too is irregular. They further alleged the Government has been lacking a specific policy to end their issues. When the authority tired to disperse them, they refused to leave the spot forcing the police to arrest and detain them at the dhanra site. Notably, the workers recruited from 1986 have not been regularized. The striking workers further declared that they would go for an indefinite strike if the Government fails to listen to them.
