MP employees to go en masse leave on October 11
Bhopal, Sep 10 (UNI) About 65,000 Madhya Pradesh Government employees will go on en masse leave on October 11 to press for their 14-point demand.
The demands include hiking dearness allowance (DA) to 50 per cent, cash payment of rest installments of DA, implementing recommendations of the Bramhaswaroop Committee with effect from 1990 and paying bonus to employees before Deepawali.
Madhya Pradesh Adhikari Karmchari Sanyukt Sangharsh Samiti Chairman Shiv Singh Tomar told reporters here today that the decision was taken at a meeting of employees' organisations.
However, if the demands were not met, all the employees will go on an indefinite strike from November 8.
He said the government was receiving Rs 150 crore interest annually due to Rs 15,000 crore deposited in pension fund of employees. Still, the government was not removing anomalies in the salaries of employees.
Mr Tomar accused the government of not implementing the recommendations of the Bramhaswaroop Committee. As a result, employees were bearing a loss of Rs 500-1,000 per month.
