Dehra Dun: A man, imitating reel character
in the famous movie Sholay, who had climbed a 150-feet high
tower near Vidhan Sabha yesterday in protest came down after
33 hours today following an assurance from the government.
Ratan Singh Rawat, who had climbed the BSNL tower
yesterday morning in support of demand to take hundreds of
employees into Uttarakhand Ayurvedic department, came down
after Dehra Dun ADM Vinod Kumar Suman convinced him that the
government would look into the demand.
He communicated the message of Principal Secretary,
Ayush, Rajiv Gupta that government would soon invite him and
140 other ex-employees for talks with regard to their demands.
Services of 141 employees were terminated in 2007 when
it was found that surplus employees were recruited against the
sanctioned posts. Since then, they have been demanding that
they should be taken back into the job.
