Staffs of Planning department of the government of Manipur today began indefinite cease work strike demanding implementation of the 7th Pay Commission . A sit-in-protest demonstration was staged today infront of the office today.
A staff of the department while talking to media persons said that the staffs have been showing solidarity to the demand of the JAC of AMGEO and AMTUC and the Government Employees federation over the demand for implementation of the 7th Pay Commission by working half day for 15 days. After the government failed to listen to the demand the staffs now decided to begin indefinite cease work strike on all working days until the demand are fulfilled.
The cease work strike and protest under the aegis of the JAC of AMGEO and AMTUC has entered 69 days today.
Speaking to media persons, another employee said that though the people of the knows that BJP government is a government who works for the welfare for the public with a commitment since they came into power and implementation of the 7th Pay Commission was even clearly mention in their election manifesto published during the recent General Assembly Election of Manipur.
Even though the 7th Pay commission has been implemented in other states including the neighbour states it is yet to be implemented in Manipur.
The cease work strikes and protest staged by the state government employees has already entered 69 days but till date no positive response or nay proper initiatives have been sought from the government side, which is big disappointment for the employees, a staff said
