Pay panel recommendation: Gujarat Govt staff threaten stir

The state Govt. employees are up in arms against the government over the issue of implementing the Sixth Pay Commission recommendations to hike their salaries. To register their protest, the employees carried out a huge rally in Ahmedabad on Sunday afternoon.

Other protest programmes such as going on a Mass Casual Leave and calling an indefinite strike are also on the cards if the government does not pay heed to their demand. The agitating employees have also threatened that the BJP government’s delaying the pay-hike might cost the party dear in the upcoming Lok Sabha election.

The rally was carried out by different associations and federations of the state government employees under the umbrella of Guajrat Rajya Karmachari Sankalan Samiti (Gujarat State Employees Co-Ordination Committee) and was attended by thousands of state government employees.

Gujarat State Panchayat Employees Federation, Gujarat State Primary Teachers’ Federation, Gujarat State Officers’ Federation and Gujarat State Board Nigam Employees Federation are some of the notable organisations that took part in the rally.
