Meanwhile the protesters, under the banner of the Hassan district unit of the Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU), staged a dharna in front of the Deputy Commissioner’s office. They alleged that employees hired through outsourced agencies have been denied due benefits. The officers in the urban local bodies joined hands with the contractors in cheating the workers.

Moreover Manjunath, treasurer, CITU, said the State government had assured them that the services of all workers would be regularised by March 2017. However, the government had not fulfilled its promise. The protesters submitted a memorandum to the Deputy Commissioner. Anuradha, a CITU State committee member, led the protest.
