Bhopal, Feb 24 (UNI) The Madhya Pradesh CPI(M) today described the decision of the government to constitute pay commission as an attempt to deceive employees.
State CPI(M) secretary Badal Saroj said the government intended to deprive its employees of the benefits of the Sixth Pay Commission.
''It was clear with the government creating a provision for fixing salaries of its employees keeping in mind its financial resources that it did not intend to benefit its employees,'' he said.
Madhya Pradesh Karmchari Congress (MPKC) patron Virendra Khongal and state MPKC President Devandra Khongal alleged that the government's decision was a fraud with its the employees.
Both organisations had described the decision as inappropriate and an attempt to capture votes of employees.
Mr Khongal said it was for the first time that the state government had announced pay commission before the recommendations of the central pay commission arrived. So far, the tradition had been to increase pay of employees on the basis of the recommendations of the latter.
He said no one would be benefited by the constitution of the pay commission. Instead, the state exchequer would be burdened due to appointment of a retired IAS officer as its chairman.
