Jammu: In the backdrop of rising prices of essential commodities, the National Mazdoor Conference on Monday demanded a special package of Rs 5,000 crore for Jammu and Kashmir from the Centre and sought Dearness Allowance (DA) for central and state government employees.

Addressing a rally here, NMC President Subash Shastri said the salaried class was facing a lot of economic hardship due to high inflation and price rise and the release of DA would be a genuine measure to provide some relief of them.

Shastri also demanded a special package of Rs 5,000 for Jammu and Kashmir for implementation of the Sixth Pay Commission's recommendations for state government employees and pensioners.
