They urged the Government to hike their salaries in accordance to the recommendations made by the 6th Pay Commission and criticised the delay in implementing the same by the Union Government.

The Union government should seriously think on these lines and try to take measures to reduce the evident discrimination prevailing among all the employees. It should ensure that all the employees get equal wages, the protesters urged.
