In a bizarre incident, employees and staffers working at the Congress headquarters in Lucknow have locked up the building after the grand-old party failed to pay their salaries.
According to the reports, the Congress office-bearers are not being allowed to enter by the employees, who are asking the party leaders to clear their pending dues. The employees working at Lucknow’s Congress office are going through turbulent times as their salaries are denied by the Congress party for the last several months.
On Thursday, protesting against the Congress party, the upset staffers and the employees locked up the gates of the Congress office.
Meanwhile, the Congress leaders have rushed to the party office to convince the protestors to unlock the doors and let them in to discuss the issue. However, the protesting staff has not accepted the demands and have carried out their protests. A large number of police personnel have also been deployed on the spot.
Not just employees, some construction workers have also not been paid by the Congress party. Reportedly, some construction work is being carried out at the premises and the workers have not been paid for a very long time.
