GUWAHATI, Feb 22: Guwahati Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) Employees’ Association staged a protest at GMDA premises on Monday demanding regularization of services. Speaking to the media, a protester said, “GDD Minister, Sidhartha Bhattacharya has regularized the services of 1607 contractual employees of GMC. But, being part of the same department, 54 contractual employees of GMDA have been deprived of this initiative due to unknown reasons.
We therefore, have undertaken this sit-in-demonstration in our office premises since February 19. However, it seems that the government has turned their backs on us as no initiative has been taken to regularize our services till date.” The protesters further informed that they will continue the protest for an indefinite period until their demands are met.
