Srinagar, Sep 4: All J&K Health Technical Employees Association, Kupwara on Tuesday observed one-day hunger strike at old Secretariat here in Srinagar against non-payment of salaries.

The association spokesman told GNS: “Our genuine time bound promotion cases are pending at Directorate for the last one year. No DPC has been held since 2012”.

He said that Director General Health Service (DGHS) is not keen to solve identical posting issues and he has shown no interest by DGHS to solve the problem of recovery of 2 & 1/2 extra salary of technical cadre by the accounts and audits department.

“Other issues of technical fraternity pending at Directorate. Delay tactics of higher authorities towards technical fraternity,” he said.

The employees meanwhile threatened the stir if their demands are not met forthwith.
