Srinagar, June 27, KNT: MGNREGA Supporting Staff who work in Rural and Development Department are facing severe hardships as government is silent on changing the recruitment rules. This supporting staff is highly qualified, working in the department from past 13 years.
“Even after working from past over a decade, there is no job security for us. Our file of absorption lies in the corridors of power and awaits final touch,” the supporting staff said.
The supporting staff said that everyone is appreciating the hard work they are putting in the department and yet nothing is being done to regularize them.
“We need absorption against the available vacancies and it should be done on fast track basis,” they said.
Lauding the role of MGNREGA supporting staff, Advisor to Lieutenant Governor, Baseer Ahmed Khan said that they will get what they deserve. “We are on it and hopefully their jobs will be secured. We have to follow a mechanism under which this supporting staff will be absorbed,” he said. (KNT)
