Punjab revenue employees call off strike


After the assurance by Punjab Revenue Minister Bram Shanker Jimpa, revenue employees on Wednesday called off their statewide strike and assured the minister to resume their work.

At a meeting with the Punjab Revenue Officers Association here, the minister assured representatives of the association that all their demands will be considered sympathetically, while asking them to immediately join their offices in larger public interest.

Jimpa said the state government has been committed for the welfare of the employees and their demands will be taken up with the Chief Minister to resolve them.

The employees went on strike to protest against keeping a naib tehsildar and a few patwaris in captivity in Lambi sub-tehsil office for nearly eight hours by farmers belonging to the Bharti Kisan Union Ekta Ugrahan.
