At the Press Conference on
27th February, veteran member of the Akhil Rajasthan Karamchari Samyukt Mahasangh and Vice-president of the All-India Council of Lok Raj Sangathan said that reality is clouded by a lot of myths. The fact is that value of money is falling continuously. When we started working, the monthly salary was Rs.600/, and those days we used be able to get by in that salary. However, today it is difficult for a worker to realise his needs even with a salary of Rs.50,000, given the declining value of the rupee. Whereas people feel that government employees are being paid high salaries!

He declared that employees in all the departments will be contacted and the protest campaign would be intensified. The protests would be intensified in a very big way to keep the pressure on the government. Ex district president of the Sangh – Patram Bhambu, veteran vice-president of the Rajasthan Patwar Sangh District Branch – Virendra Parikh and others also addressed the Press Conference.
