Village servants stage dharna

HYDERABAD: Members of the AP Gram Sevakula Sangham (village servants’ association) on Saturday staged a dharna before the office of Chief Commissioner of Land Administration, here, demanding increase in salaries. M. Narasimha, MLA, participated in the protest to express his solidarity.

Addressing the gathering, he wanted the government to raise the village servants’ salary to match the rising price of commodities and to recognise them as class four staff, as assured four years ago.
