Delhi government employees protest over salaries

New Delhi, July 7 (IANS) At least 100 Delhi government employees on Tuesday staged a protest inside the Delhi Secretariat demanding clarity on the issue of their salaries, and cadre restructuring which has not happened since 1951.

“We were to get our areas of work in 2006, but have not got it till date,” Deepak Bharadwaj, an upper division clerk said.

They also said there should be no discrimination in the medical facilities provided to Delhi government employees.
