A delegation of the PRC Struggle Committee met Principal Secretary to Government (HR) Shashibhushan Kumar, who invited the Committee members for talks on Tuesday.

The Struggle Committee categorically said that consultations and negotiations would be possible only if the government accepted its three demands, including keeping the new PRC in abeyance until the issue was taken to a logical conclusion.

The Steering Committee of the PRC Sadhana Samithi (Struggle Committee) authorised a 9-member delegation on behalf of it to place the demands before the government.

The delegation submitted a letter requesting the State government to look into the employees’ demands.
