Siliguri, 02 Sept:

Member of United Employees Association of GTA said that from 17 Aug, 2020, the staffs of UEA had started this agitation and continued the program to protest in front of Lal Kothi Office Darjeeling but till now there was no response from the higher authority and because of that they have started this Pen Down Strike for ten days, and if further no result of this strike is seen then they will continue until they get the permanent letters regarding regularization from the higher authority.

“We want to tell everybody that they should fulfill their responsibility and help the people of the hills to solve their problems and also want to say that whatever mistake has been made in the past years should not continue in future. We also want to thank GTA chairman and Gorkha Janmukti Morcha chairman for supporting us” mention GTA, UEA members.
