However, they had finally appreciated our plight when they noted the genuineness of our grievance and allowed us to hold the Dharna. The media persons also helped us. They visited the spot, collected the charter of demands also took interview of the Secretary General. Security agencies of State and Central Government also came to the Dharna spot, interviewed Secretary General and others.
When the delegation returned after handing over the Resolution to the available representative of the Secretariat of CGA, the Dharna programme was declared over by the President at 3.30 p.m. and it had ended with shouting of slogans. Slogans were shouted condemning the attitude of the CGA and demanding immediate settlement of the demands.
The Dharna was therefore a grand success and we congratulate all members, Federal Executive members and leaders of fraternal organizations who have directly and indirectly helped to make the programme a grand success.
