Hundreds of officers and employees of civic bodies staged a protest at Budhapara in Raipur on Wednesday against seventh pay commission. The employees from all civic bodies of the state staged a dharna under the banner of Chhattisgarh Swayattshasi Karmachari Mahasangh. President of the Mahasangh Vishnu Chandrakar claimed that the employees from most departments of the state are getting benefit of seventh pay commission but the employees of the Urban Administration are deprived of it. Chhattisgarh Swayattshasi Karmachari Mahasangh staged the protest on 23-point demands.

The employees threatened that if the employees of the Urban Administration are not given the benefit of seventh pay commission, they would intensify their agitation. The employees have not got arrears for the last six years. Due to the strike, the works of the civic bodies including Raipur Municipal Corporation were badly hit on Wednesday. Sharad Dubey, Ashok Mishra, Santosh Pandey and others participated in the protest.
