Terminated contract Housing employees skirmish with police
Ongole, May 15: The Church Centre created tension on Friday for some time when terminated outsourcing Housing staff members staged a dharna seeking regularisation of their services.
The protesters raised slogans against the TDP government, alleging that it had failed in keeping its poll promise to regularise services of outsourced employees.
Later the protesters skirmish with police when they torch the State government's effigy, leaving one contract employee injured.
The workers led by CITU District Secretary G. Srinivas succeeded in burning the effigy of the government. R. Kondiah (45), who fell unconscious, was rushed to RIMS, police said.
The indefinite strike launched by six terminated workers entered the third day on Friday.
