ITANAGAR, Aug 24: The Itanagar traffic wardens (ITW) who are more than 155 in numbers indefinite dharna entered for 2nd day. The dharna began on Monday after the government failed to fulfill their demands despite assurance by authority.
Even due to inclined weather the ITW continue to sought slogans with placard in hands reminding the concerned authority of the promise made to them to absorb them in traffic cell. The slogan also include with a prayer to the state government for consideration of their genuine demand for job security.
The protesting wardens appeal the state government to absorbed the ITW under the traffic cell once separate traffic cell is made functional and the traffic cell in Capital is functional with a Dy SP and other officials and its is the high time that the state government should sympathetically consider our genuine demand. The agitating ITW said.
We do not know why the government is hesitant in fulfilling the promise made to us,” a warden said.
Talking about the second demand, he while referring to the 2015 cabinet note he claimed at that time the cabinet had recommended regularization of all traffic wardens.
We are not asking and demanding anything new but it is directly related with our career and job security and bread and butter for the family and the state government being our parents should understand our pain and sincerity and dedication. Another warden said.
“We are taking care of the ever increasing traffic in Itanagar so that the public does not face any problem while commuting in ICR. We go to our duties everyday no matter how bad the weather conditions and few of us are since last 11 years. The state government should understand our conditions, recognize our contribution and resolve our grievances at the earliest,” another warden appealed.
“ We have to face untold suffering including argument, scolding and even physical assault during discharging of the since duty during the heat summer, rainy days and even during the cold weather but we never give up our responsibility in management of traffic in the capital complex” Inforemd another warden.
We are expecting that someone from the state government, administration and authority concern visit to us and give an assurance for a logic conclusion and solution but no one has come and listen to our grievances.
Finding no option we may continue their sit-in till the government address their two-point charter of demands.
