Bijoykumar said that the demand made by the employees is genuine and it’s their rights that the commission should implement in the state.
Unfortunately, no positive response or initiative has been taken up by the state government despite the demand protest has reached 56 days, he added.
On behalf of the employees, Bijoykumar appeals the state government to implement the 7th Pay commission at the earliest and also to urge the central government for implementation of the commission in the state.
The employees will give full support to any decision taken up by the JAC AMTUC and AMGEO until and unless their demand is fulfill.
