Haryana govt staff go on 3-day strike from tomorrow
Chandigarh: Over two lakh employees of Haryana government, unhappy over their demands not being met, will go on a three-day strike from Monday even as the state imposed Section 144 to quell the agitation.
Lashing out at the government, Haryana Karamchari (employees) Coordination Committee accused the government of trying to create differences between various unions of the employees.
"By imposing section 144, the state government instead of inviting employees for a talk has created a situation of direct clash with employees," the Committee`s general secretary Subash Lamba said today, and asserted that employees would definitely stage demonstrations from tomorrow.
Asking various unions to withdraw their decision to strike, the state government has imposed Section 144, banning assembly of five or more persons.
Chief Secretary S C Chaudhary said the government has fulfilled "maximum" demands and assured that remaining demands would be "sympathetically considered".
All departments have been directed to take necessary steps to maintain law and order and ensure essential services do not suffer on account of the strike, an official spokesman said.
Besides, instructions have been issued for patrolling in sensitive areas, the spokesman said, adding police force will be used against those who damage public property.
The employees have been presssing for various demands, including abolishment of contractual system and outsourcing of work, filling up of vacancies, regularisation of part time employees, and cancellation of 3,519 permits to private bus operators.
