“The monthly wages of SPOs should be raised to Rs 5000/- per month”: Darakhshan
Socialistic Democratic Party President Dr Darakhshan Andrabi today reiterated her demand of increase in the monthly wages of SPOs. She was addressing a party workers meet in Kathua today. Accompanied by SDP General Secretary Ajay Kumar, SDP President in her address appealed to the government to enhance the monthly wages of SPOs to 5000/- per month as the meager amount of three thousand rupees per month was quite insufficient to sustain the families when the inflation has risen beyond ones’ speculation. “SPOs deliver great duties amid high risks and their contribution in maintaining law and order situation in the state has been tremendous and praiseworthy. They should be paid as per their work,” said SDP President. Dr Darakhshan Andrabi appealed to the Chief Minister to take up the issue on priority and enhance the wages of these valorous workers. She also appealed to the government to devise long term regularization policy for SPOS so that a guarantee shields them and their future. “We cannot put these SPOs in uncertainty for a full life. We should give them a safe future,” said Dr Darakhshan Andrabi.
