Chandigarh, April 24:
With its members at the centre of the battle against Covid-19, the Punjab Revenue Officer’s Association has sought the attention of the Chief Minister Captain Amrinder Singh towards, not just the revenue officials, but also at the lowest category of staff, to minimize their woes.
In a letter written to the CM, president of the association, Mr Gurdev Singh said that more than 200 members of the association were now moving in different parts of the state for tackling Covid 19 pandemic and were at times doing jobs which were beyond their official role. Not just at the senior level but also at the lowest strata including drivers and others, the risk of contracting the virus exists.
“We are moving across in different parts of the state but the drivers who accompany us are also risking their lives and travelling with us. We have urged the CM to consider giving them a fix pay especially for these difficult times,’’ said Mr Singh while speaking to Fact News. He said that they were like the daily wagers, and their problems also need to be addressed so as the head of the association it was the responsibility to raise it with the CM and try and ensure that it gets addressed.
