All led by Ganesh Bhagat, Pushpendra Kumar Virdi, Sukhjit Singh shouted slogans against the government at Puda Complex. PSSF General Secretary Teerth Singh Basi, Karnail Singh Sandhu said that Captain Government is continuously implementing wrong policies for the attendants, pensioners and common people under the guise of Kovid-19. The government is continuously taking away the facilities of the workers, which they gained by struggling.

He said that due to Kovid-19, Captain Sarkar is asking the employees to do all the work online from office and home. On the other hand, a decree has been issued to cut the mobile allowance of the employees, citing the vacant treasury. There is anger among the workers as the government has kept its ministers and MLAs away from the cuts. He has demanded that the privatization being done on the pretext of ending posts in various departments should be stopped immediately. Government should discontinue 8657 posts and replace old pension with old pension.

In addition, the mid-day meal workers, who are victims of financial constraints, should be paid the wages of May, June and July. He warned that if the government does not meet his demands soon, he will fight throughout Punjab till August 18. Kuldeep Singh Koda, Govind, Jagir Singh, Amandeep Singh, Tarsem, Mulkharaj, Ragjit Singh, Santosh Singh, Karmajit Singh, Manohar Lal, Amarjeet Singh etc. were on this occasion.
