AGARTALA, Sep 29 (TIWN): Modi Govt has been marked as the first Govt whose party desperately lied with Fake Election promises before Lok Sabha Election. In case of Tripura also same happened when BJP was slamming the then Left Govt for not giving 7th Pay Commission to the Govt employees. But after winning the election with Employees and Pensioners votes, Pay Commission could not be announced onr 6 months of Govt formation, whereas 10 % DA of July month is now pending left the Durga Puja season as dry. Infact puja business is still at down due to commodity price hikes and no salary hike of employees. On February 19, 2018, 1 day after Assembly Election, Chief Minister Biplab Deb said that 7th Pay Commission’s implementation needs 20,000 cores at least. Referring the Vision Document of BJP which was published by Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, Biplab Deb said, "When we were promising 7th pay commission that time we had to consult with the central govt and also talked to NITI Aayog. At least Rs. 20,000 crores we need to take for the 7th pay commission's allocation. In the same manner for allowances, wages the funding will also be increased by centre", added Deb one day after the poll was ended”.

However, when the so called “zero deficit” budget was announced it was said that Rs. 1000 crores have been kept for employees 7th Pay Commission. 7th Pay Commission has been delayed till December, 2018 and also July month’s DA has been missed. When employees were waiting for 7th pay commission before Durga Puja, not even July month’s pending DA was given to the employees. As a result neither DA nor 7th Pay Commission was given to the employees led massive frustration among the Govt employees. Central Govt employees are protesting even after getting DA for two times recently but here in case of Tripura employees are afraid to raise voice. Resentments have been fueled among the govt employees as on Sep 10, when Strike remained 100 % successful in Tripura Govt to cut salaries of employees who failed to reach at offices on that day.

Before the election, BJP had promised to implement 7th Pay Commission for the Govt employees and the pensioners in the first cabinet meeting and from month of April they will count the hiked salary but after 6 months Verma Committee failed to submit 7th Pay Commission.

A Govt which could start its beginning with lies in the 1st cabinet meet, what can be expected from it in coming days.

6 months have been completed that BJP Ministers, CM took oath at Agartala Assam Rifles ground and for one month long celebrations continued after people got a new Govt with the downfall of 25 years of Communist citadel. But when state was waiting for 7th Pay Commission, increase in wages, regularization, employment BJP Govt started its Jumla-sterns by stopping job recruitment followed by cancellations of ongoing all recruitment and removal of Pension-facility for new Govt employees. 

Congress spokesperson Harekrishna Bhowmik said, “It’s not only 15 days or 1 month old Govt but 6 months have been passed. It’s really strange report that a section of Govt employees have not yet received their salaries of last month. It’s not good as across the country Govt employees get salaries through bank accounts regularly. Talks are on air that Govt ordered hold due payments to the employees and also not to give the pending bills of the contractors and at the same time GPF withdrawals are also temporarily suspended”.
