Chaibasa: Nagar Parishad president Nila Nag led a demonstration at the Municipal Office compound on Thursday. After the agitation, the protestors sent a copy of memorandum to the Urban Development and Housing Board Ministry of Jharkhand.
The president while addressing the staff of Municipal Council, Chaibasa, said that Swachh Bharat campaign was launched by the Government of India in the year 2014. She said that the staff implementing the campaign was forced to go to an indefinite strike every year for not getting grant of pension benefits after retirement as all the sections of municipality are not self-reliant so that the retired staff could be paid their pension.
Nag asserted that practically the success of Swachh Bharat campaign was solely dependent on the shoulders of Municipal staff. ďMost of the employees working under the campaign are poor people. We appeal to the state minister to resolve the long pending demand of the staff otherwise it would have adverse effect on cleanliness drives during Durga Puja vacations.
The meeting was attended by Kashinath , Hardev Yadav, Mahesh Prasad, Sunil, Pawan, Kushal Tirkey, Dinafi Das, Lauky Charan Karwa, Shanti Tigga, Banmali Karwa and other staff of the municipality.
