Dharna demanding 33 months arrears pay

The Assam government employs roughly 500,000 people in its administrative structure that includes state run education institutions, public distribution system, health care and other departments. The workers association Sadao Asom Karamchari Parishad (SAKP) Dima Hasao district branch staged a dharna from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on December 17 infront of the Deputy Commissioner office at Haflong demanding the State Government for immediate release of 33 months revised arrears pay. A recent status issued by SAKP activists said that their employees have not received the arrears pay for the past 33 months and SAKP have been raising these issues with the government but the government has turned a blind eye to their demands. The large turnout at the protest outside the Deputy Commissioner office have witnessed against the light of these circumstances. Though the exact reason for delay in payment of arrears was yet to be ascertained.
