Criticizing the state government for its inability to regularize the contract staff of the Municipal Company (MC) and the lathi accusations by the police against the sanitary workers in Moga, the employees of Ludhiana MC under the banner of Municipal Karamchari Dal have Burned the effigy of Punjab’s Deputy Chief Minister Sukhjinder Randhawa at the Jagraon Bridge on Thursday.

A protest march was also organized from MC Zone-A’s office to the Jagraon Bridge, as their demonstration entered its sixth day on Thursday. Protesters said the Moga incident would be the final nail in the state’s Congressional government coffin and alleged Randhawa was responsible for it.

Accusing the government of discriminating against MC contract workers by not including them in the list of 36,000 employees to be regularized in the state ahead of the legislative elections, union leaders said the protest would continue until their request be satisfied.

Union president Vijay Danav said the accusation of lathi on employees demonstrating in Moga revealed the true face of the Congressional government. “Chief Minister Charanjit Channi is trying to woo the SC community, but on the other hand, MC employees are being denied their rights,” he said.

President Chaudhary Yashpal said that health workers are the real hero who keeps the city clean, but they receive meager salaries. He added that their protest will continue until the government regularizes them and the effigy of MP CM OP Soni is burned on Monday.
