Bhubaneswar: Members of Contractual Cook-cum-Attendant Union (CCA) on Wednesday protested infront of Bidhan Sabha by worshipping sandals.
Jobs of more than 5000 cook – cum – attendants (CCAs) who have been engaged in various schools run by the SC and ST Development Department since 27 years, have not made permanent. They have alleged that they had been bringing it to the notice of the Government to solve their problems but the Government had fallen on deaf ears.
Apparently, peeved over the negligence they have decided to worship sandals to draw the attention of the Government.
Sarathi Sethi, President of the Union, in a Press Meet on Wednesday alleged that, “we have been asked to work day-night and in addition to cooking we are also engaged in works like gardening, attending the sicks etc. Moreover while a Government official works for 6 hours a day and is availed of all Governmental facilities, neither our job is made permanent nor are we provided with any duty charges.”
Amongst others Parshuram Mohapatra, General Secretary, Baldev Dash Assistant General Secretary, Harekrushna Kumbha, Joint Secretary of the Union were present.
