JORHAT, Oct 4 - For the second time within a span of less than 10 days, mandals, kanangus and chainmen across the State resorted to a four-day cease-work beginning from Wednesday in response to a call given by the All Assam Mandal Kanangu Sanmilani (State Revenue department employees� body) in support of their long-standing 17-point charter of demands.
The employees had gone on a three-day cease-work stir for the same cause from September 24 last.
The All Assam Mandal Kanangu Sanmilani, formed in 1926, has about 3,250 members. Its central office is located in Guwahati.
President of the association Amulya Kalita, a senior Kanangu posted in Jorhat Revenue Circle (East), told The Assam Tribune here today that in view of the Government not responding despite the three-day stir observed by the employees last week, the body has been �compelled� to adopt the path of agitation.
Kalita said that respective Governments have been turning a deaf ear since the past few years, even though several memorandums were submitted to Dispur seeking fulfilment of their demands.
He hoped that the Government will take notice of their demands, which were not only about their benefits, but many of them were related to improvement of working conditions in the revenue offices for better service delivery to the public.
Kalita added that because of non-fulfilment of their demands, the employees have been facing several difficulties while discharging their duties and this has delayed the public services also.
