Protest organised demanding old pension and ₹ 26,000 minimum wage

A protest was organised outside the district collector’s office on behalf of the State Government Employees Central Association and Bhartiya Kisan Morcha on Friday.

Comrade Dilip Powar said, “All the trade unions and farmers’ organizations across the country have come together to expose the govt’s anti-people policies. We are protesting against the policy of oppressing employees, oppressing our peasants, and exploiting the common man.

While one of the protestors, Suvarna Humbekar, said, “We demand that every employee should get at least Rs26,000 minimum wage.

The govt should provide a minimum 9,000 pension and dearness allowance and everyone should be entitled to pension on full salary.”

Central government workers may expect another increase in dearness allowance (DA) based on the CPI-IW published by the Labour Bureau. The calculation is done according to the 7th Pay Commission recommendations. The DA and DR hike will have retrospective effect from January 1, 2024, benefiting over one crore employees and pensioners.

The Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM) condemns the Central Government for excessive use of state power, arrests, and tear gas shells to prevent the Delhi Chalo March. SKM calls for protests against the attack on farmers, demands the withdrawal of forces, and urges the government to engage in discussions.
