Jammu: Demanding payment of arrears on account of implementation of the Sixth Pay Commission, the strike observed by Jammu and Kashmir government employees entered the third day Thursday as they staged demonstrations in various parts of the state in support of their demands.

The three-day strike call was given by the Joint Consultative Committee of employee associations after their two rounds of talks with the government failed to break the deadlock. The impact of the strike, however, was normal today.

Employees of various educational and other institutes staged demonstrations and took out rallies here in support of their demands.

Similar protest rallies and dharnas were witnessed in Kathua and Udhampur districts.

However, essential services including health, power and water supply were kept out of the purview of the strike.

JCC is also demanding increase in retirement age from 58 years to 60 years.
