Covai Post Network


About 200 Anti Poaching Watchers attached to the Mudumalai Tiger Reserve (MTR) abstained from their works today demanding higher salaries. They have also cautioned that all the watchers of the Nilgiris district will go on strike if no action is taken in this issue.

The anti-poaching watchers were being paid Rs.6,000 for the past few years. Their salaries are usually paid after inordinate delays, sometimes extending to two months. The workers want a hike in their salaries and an assurance that they will be paid on time.

They have given a deadline of until tomorrow for the Government to take action, else they have threatened to go on a full-fledged and indefinite strike till their demands are fulfilled.
