Hamirpur, HP, Jan 8: In response to two-day Bharat bandh call given by the left parties and their affiliated employees organisations, thousands of men and women took out a massive procession and held a rally here at the Gandhi chowk in support of their various demands and against the BJP-led Central Government.
Carrying banners and placards in their hands, the agitators were raising anti-central government slogans.
State President of CITU, Comrade Kashmir Singh Thakur said that the protestors marched from hospital chowk and reached the Gandhi chowk through main bazaar.
Raising slogans against the Centre, they demanded ending of contractual system in services and regularisation of services of adhoc and daily paid workers.
At a rally, the CITU leaders lambasted the central and the state governments both for not giving any heed to the problems and difficulties being faced by the workers all over India.
They warned the BJP government that if they didn’t accept the demands of the striking employees whose strike entered first day today, they would be forced to convert into an indefinite one. (UNI)
