Reacting to the statement of Chief Minister regarding implementation of 7th Pay Commission, Chairman, J&K Civil Secretariat Employees Coordination Committee Ghulam Rasool Mir Saturday described the statement as ‘unfortunate’ as the employees have to wait for two more years for fulfilment of their ‘genuine’ demand.
He said the employees of the J&K are working hard for the development of the state but when they make a genuine demand the government asks them to wait whereas they take no time for revision of 100% increase in pay hikes of the legislators.
Mir clarified that the Secretariat employees are struggling for regularization of casual labours and said if the government wants to regularize services of casual labours, the union will whole heartedly support the Government for the landmark decision.
Referring to the Chief Minister’s Statement that State’s financial position is not sound for implementation of 7th Pay Commission, Ghulam Rasool said why the government has purchased vehicles worth Rs 200 crore, 100% hike in legislators’ salary, regular repairs and renovations on government residential/office accommodations which has created huge financial liabilities on State exchequer.
In case, the government doesn’t pay serious attention towards employees’ genuine demands, we will be having no option to hold State-wide protest on indefinite basis, Mir said.
“We request the Chief Minister to address employees’ burning issues without going into confrontation,” he added.
