Puducherry,Mar 18: Puducherry Welfare Minister M Kandasamy today warned that the government will not remain a mute spectator if employees resort to strike for each and every issue.
Presiding over the "International Women's Day celebrations" organised jointly by the Women and Child Development Department of the administration and All India Radio, Puducherry, he said the government employees would have to play an important role in the implementation of people's welfare schemes.
The delay in organising this function itself was due to the strike by the employees, he said adding that in case of any grievances it should be brought to notice of senior officals for redressal.
The government employees should be aware of their percentage in the total population here and the amount being utilised for their welfare and act accordingly, he added.
Stating that the government was committed to serve the people, he said hereafter the real poor people would be identified through Anganwadi workers and schemes would be implemented only for them.
Inaugurating the function, Chief Minister N Rangasamy called upon goverment employees to concentrate in their work instead of going on strike. He said the administration was providing a host of concessions to governemnt employees and even regularised the services of Anganwadi workers which was not so far done by any governments in the country.
Listing out the series of welfare measures implemented by the government here for women, Mr Rangasamy said while infant mortality rate had come down considerably, the literacy rate of women had gone up due to the schemes.
