The plight of the district cannot be ignored and compromised at the level of discourse until our genuine demand is respected and obliged, added the release.
Further, the unions stated that the state government has tested the patience of the public enough and if the government is still convinced to play the same game, the public shall take its own course of action. If any untoward incident happen in future, the government is responsible for it.
The unions also reiterated that it will continue to endure the struggle till the government answer it’s demands.

The organisation stated that they are not willing to withdraw the ultimatum to the government, citing various grievances and dissatisfaction with government’s response, and that any further talks will only be held at the state government level, wrote the DC of Peren.
