Imphal, April 19:
Demanding the implementation of the 7th pay commission in the state, employees of All Manipur Agricultural Department Employee Welfare Organisation (AMADEWO) today staged a sit-in protest in front of their office building at Sanjenthong.
Speaking to media persons, Loitongbam Sanatomba Singh, General Secretary, AMADEWO said that the employees of AMADEWO is also a part of the Joint Administrative Council (JAC) of All Manipur Trade Unions’ Council (AMTUC) and All Manipur Government Employees’ Organisation (AMGEO) and fully support the agitation and will continue to support till their demands are met.
Asserting that most of the neighbouring state Assam, Tripura, Meghalaya, the 7th pay commission scheme has already been implemented but “Why is the government of Manipur unable to implement the scheme in the state till date?” he asked.
AMADEWO appeals to the state government to urge the central government for implementation of the 7th pay commission in Manipur at the earliest and it will be not be wrong to say that the central government will accept the demand for the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission if the state government willingly urges, he added.
It may be mention that the JAC of AMTUC and AMGEO has launched various form of agitation including cease-work strike Demanding implementation of 7th Central pay commission in the state for the last few years.
