Agitators support central government workers on DA issue, further corner Mamata government –

DA (Dearness Allowance) issue is going on in Bengal. State government employees and pensioners are not reducing their agitation even though the state budget has announced a little expensive allowance. This time, the Central Government employees working in the state also extended their helping hand to the State Government employees. From the beginning, however, the state government employees had been demanding that they should pay 38 per cent DA at the same rate as the Centre.

But, as the state government did not agree, the state government employees announced a 48-hour strike in the coming week. It is reported that to increase the pressure on the state government, this time the central government employees working in the state will also support the upcoming strike. Central government employees working in West Bengal may observe a strike on February 21.

Incidentally, the left-backed government workers’ organization on July 12 called the Assembly campaign on Friday with 27-point demands. Central government employees working in the state were also present in that procession. According to sources, the DA agitators have decided to completely ‘pen down’ all government offices in the state on February 20 and 21.

The state government workers’ organization has made it clear that the agitation will continue if the DA is not increased as per the demand. However, the agitators had been warning for some time that the state would be paralyzed if the dues were not received. They will not do any work. Do continuous movement. They even told the state chief secretary and the state chief election officer in Nabanna that they will not participate in any panchayat election work.
