New Delhi, Nov 21 (UNI) The agitation of an estimated 7000 administrative staff employees of All India Radio and Doordarshan over what they said the utter neglect by the authorities to resolve the continued wage discrimination among employees in Prasar Bharti despite acceptance by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting to settle the issue entered its second day today.

Besides, around 200 representative members from various AIR and Doordarshan stations all over the country are also participating in a 72-hour relay hunger strike being held at Akashvani Bhavan at Parliament Street here, since yesterday.

The employees also threaten to convert the present agitation into 'fast-unto-death if there is not an immediate resolution to what they alleged the discrimination in the pay scale matter.

They said the issue was not confined to them alone but also involved the broad outlook with reference to the implementation of the Prasar Bharti Act.
