VIJAYAWADA: The Andhra Pradesh Joint Action Committee of Government Employees’ Service Associations has resolved to continue their agitation by wearing black badges while on duty from March 9 to April 5. This is to express their protest over the government’s failure to resolve their issues.
The state executive meeting of the JAC held here on Thursday under the leadership of its chairman Bopparaju Venkateswarlu and secretary general Palisetti Damodaran Rao finalised a schedule for the agitation. The leaders would visit all government offices from March 17 to 20 to seek employees’ support for their movement and urge them to observe a ‘work to rule’ from March 21 to April 5.
They would also meet the family members of the deceased government employees waiting for the appointment order under ‘compassionate grounds’ -- from March 27, to seek their support. "We would again hold a state executive meet on April 5 and decide on their future course of action," they said.
The committee expressed its disappointment that it did not get any clarity from the government on several of the employees’ demands pertaining to the 11th PRC pay scales, special pays, PRC arrears, pending DA arrears, return of 2,600 crores to NSDL, payment of wages on the first day of every month, abolition of CPS etc.
