Jammu and Kashmir Civil Society Forum has demanded Festival-special holiday package for working class women both in Govt and private sector.
In a statement issued here on Monday JKCSF Chairman Abdul Qayoom Wani said on the special occasions of big festivals like Eid Women have to do much work in their households as such they need extra time and energy to meet the needs of the festivals. Chairman Wani said especially on the Eid occasion women have to do much work in homes and to see the home matters, and children in the house.
The working women find it very hard to afford the extra works at home while also continuing their official duties. Society feels the dire need that working women both in govt as well as in private sector be given special holiday packages pre and post festival.
JKCSF has also demanded the advance release of salary to employees of Jammu and Kashmir and pension to pensioners so that necessary items can be purchased in time by the employees for their families. Society said trade and commerce being down in market the salary money will spread in market helping traders as well.
