Congress leaders Mohammed Akbar and Girish Dewangan extended support to the agitation of MARKFED daily wage
workers. Addressing the agitating workers, Akbar said that Government should extend preference to already working staffers in MARKFED as they have gained the requisite experience of working in the institution.
Party leader Girish Dewangan termed it to be yet another instance of anti-labour policy of state government as the working staffers are being forced to agitate for their genuine rights. Earlier, around 2,000 of the MARKFED workers took out a rally in support of their demands. Many of them alleged that certain people in MARKFED are looking to gain from appointments of their hand-picked staffers.
