Redress genuine demands of striking patwaris: Tarigami
Srinagar: While urging the government to redress genuine demands of striking patwaris, CPI (M) leader, Mohamad Yousuf Tarigami, on Tuesday said that the strike of patwaris has paralyzed the working in the revenue department.
In a statement issued here, Tarigami said: “The administration has been giving assurances and making promises that their genuine grievances would be redressed, but nothing seems to be happening on the ground, forcing them to go on protest.”
“The demands include an increase in the grade pay of graduate patwaris, timely departmental promotion of patwaris, girdawaris, rent for Patwar Khanas (private accommodation), construction of new Patwar Khanas, creation of new patwar halqas and Girdawar circles are all genuine demands, which must be fulfilled without any further delay,” said Tarigami.
“The Government must talk to the representatives of the Association and take effective steps to settle their genuine demands,” he said.
