Mail remains undistributed

The mail sent by political parties on their candidates for the teachers and graduate constituencies are not being distributed on the rural level.

As the schools have begun, large amount of student scholarship have accumulated due to lack of distribution. Since May 21st, around 3,000 mail bags have remained undistributed at the railway mail service (RMS) Mangaluru division, informed sources from the department.

“According to the Supreme Court’s judgment, salary should not be given when strike is maintained. Now, due to the 11 days of strike, lakhs of pieces of mail have remained undistributed. Who is going to distribute this in the future? How can we work when we will not accept our salaries?” said workers group Secretary Santosh Madhyastha.
