Must read

Tura, Feb 26: After waiting for weeks to get a commitment from the authorities on their pending salaries, and with no positive response forthcoming, hundreds of employees of Garo Hills Autonomous District Council staff began three days of strike from today.

Under the aegis of the Non Gazetted Employees Association, the employees gathered at the Tura Government College field in Teteng A’ja to launch the protest.

Displaying banners and placards calling for the release of 32 months dues, NGEA leaders pointed out that they had repeatedly approached and interacted with the Council Executive Committee seeking the release of their pending salaries but failed to get a positive response which has compelled them to go on a work strike from Monday.

The NGEA president Brithin M Sangma addressed the protesters and said that they are ready to meet with the council authorities if called for talks to resolve the matter.


The employees will hold the sit in demonstration from 10 AM to 4 PM for three consecutive days.

Their strike has led to all work paralysis in the council with working tables empty, rooms vacant and impacted revenue collection, particularly land revenue and water tax.

The employees are holding their strike in the college field since previous protest site outside the main GHADC office has been restricted by the West Garo Hills district administration.
