The Tungabhadra Neeravari Valaya Hangami Karmika Sangha, under the aegis of the TUCI, launched an indefinite dharna at the Tipu Sultan garden in Raichur on Tuesday against the move to outsource employees by Water Resource Department officials.

Several hundred workers, led by R. Manasaiah, alleged that the executive engineer’s office in Yaramaras, Sirwar and Sindhanur zones have published notifications to recruit 738 employees through outsourcing agencies to replace the present ones, by violating the rules.

“The department has been trying to push the present labourers into deep trouble by outsourcing employees. Thus they have been forced to launch an indefinite dharna against such a move. The protest will be on till the department drops the decision,” Mr. Manasaiah said.
