In the brief speech, they said that in 2012, the 8th pay board for media workers was formed and in September 2013 Board Board was declared. The salary and allowances did not increase at the desired rate. The government assured at that time that as much as early will announce another board and be compensated. But the assurance was not implemented, but the salary and allowances of the government employees were doubly increased by us.
there is a great deal of difference between the payroll of the journalists with the public servants. They said, discussing the salary allowance with the Information Minister for two years. But the information minister repeatedly broke it with the promise. At times, they are taking refuge in deception. For the last one year, the owners are not giving the representative, they are excusing the not being the wage board. Besides, the journalists have been cleared of the oppressive ICT Act 57. He is not found in any danger of journalists. So he should not have journalist hate ministries in the Ministry of Information. That’s why media workers demanding his removal.
