Wives of cops stage Thiyya agitation
Mumbai - The wives of police personnel staged thiyya agitation at Azad Maidan on Saturday to press their demands such as eight-hour duty for police personnel, housing facilities for them and government jobs to their children. The wives of police personnel had to resort to this agitation as there was no implementation of the nine month old assurance given by the government to appoint the committee to look into their demands. They had also staged such an agitation in the month of March and the chief minister himself had assured them to form the committee. The agitators have vowed to continue their stir till their demands are not fulfilled.
