Ranchi: Ranchi Mayor Asha Lakra on Sunday met the SPOs who are staging a protest at the Morhabadi grounds in support of their demands.
Apart from mats, she also provided water tankers and mobile toilets on the spot with a separate mobile toilet for women SPOs. She said that the toilet in the children’s park would be opened so that the people can take bath.
She said that the previous government had assured that the SPOs would be provided permanent jobs on a priority basis. She said that on August 31 the contract period of these people was coming to an end and the state government has yet not taken a decision to make them permanent or extend their services.
The mayor said that while on one hand, the government was planning to give unemployment allowance on the other hand these SPOs are being made unemployed. She said that the government would be urged to take prompt action on their demands.
