Imphal, October 20: The All Manipur Transport Department Employee’s Union (AMTDEU) continued their cease-work strike for the fourth day freezing all works of the department.
Members of the Union continue their protest in front of the District Transport Office, Imphal. H Bijoy Kumar, Secretary of AMTDEU stated that the union will continue the strike until the demands are fulfilled .  The department had already submitted a memorandum on July 29 and a reminder on September 29 demanding non-engagement of retired officers but State Government has failed to respond to the reminder and is acting against demand of the union.In these regards, the department has already given 15 days ultimatum and failing any positive response from the concern authority, the cease work strike was launched which began from October 17, 2016.
The department has also threaten that cease work strike will continue if the Government fails to fulfill their demands at the earliest. Meanwhile, public are facing problems related with the transport work. Amuba, a public, who came to registered for High Security Number Plate at the department said that if the cease work continued, there will be lots of problem to the public like him. On the other hand, Manipur Traffic Police still continues their drive against those who are violating the traffic rules like no helmet while driving, no proper documents and specially no high security number plate (IND). Amuba appeals the concern authority to look into the matter as public persons like him will be left with no choice to waste money to the traffic paying unreasonable fine only for the government failing to fulfill the demands of the transport department which is still on cease work strike.
Manipur Government Services Federation general secretary Purujit Lairikyengbam said they have already submitted their charter of demands which include non-engagement of retired officers.He added re-engaging retired officials only hamper the aspirations of those still in office and at the same time violates the norms.
He continued the repeated re-engagement of retired officials only mean there are corruptions in the system. He added the federation supports the agitation launch by the AMTDEU to stop such action.
Elaborating further he said retired DTO Imphal West M Mani Singh who was re-engaged as DTO Imphal West in 2014 has been again re-engaged as the DTO by a cabinet decision.
