Kakinada, Oct 11 (UNI) Expressing happiness over the Andhra Pradesh Government conceding their major demand on Interim Relief (IR), state-level Joint Action Committee (JAC) of state government employees, teachers and workers Co-Chairman M Narayana today said there would be no let-up in their stance on the other 51 demands.

Talking to mediapersons along with other JAC leaders, including United Teachers Federation (UTF) State President I Narasimharao, district JAC Chairman Achanta Ramarayudu and district JAC Secretary Buriga Aseervadam, Mr Narayana said further talks with Finance Minister K Rosaiah would be held on October 13 and 14.

He said the JAC would review the situation on October 16 and finalise the next course of action based on the outcome of the talks.

''We will not rest until and unless our demands, especially that of regularising the services of contract workers, providing of house sites to employees, are met,'' he added.

Claiming that the government conceding 22 per cent IR was a major achievement and unprecedented, he said only 11 per cent IR was announced during 1999 and a mere 8.5 per cent in 2005.

While clarifying the stance of JAC on ACB raids, he said what they wanted was avoiding arrests and suspensions of employees in cases of disproportionate assets as the value of the assets acquired few years ago were now inflated.

He said the JAC was not against taking action against the corrupt employees but opposed erratic disciplinary actions without a basis or reason.
