Stop strike, serve people: Abdullah to employees
Srinagar: Union Minister for New and
Renewable Energy, Farooq Abdullah, on Monday appealed to the
striking government employees to call off their stir for the
sake of people.
"The people are suffering because of the ongoing
strike, which needs to be called off as the government is
promise-bound to address the grievances of its employees," he
told party workers here.
Abdullah, also the president of ruling National
Conference, asked party leaders to take up services to the
people as a religious obligation. "Treat it (helping the
masses) as your religious duty," he said.
Government employees in the state are on a strike for
over one week demanding arrears as per the 6th Pay Commission
recommendations and raising of retirement age.
