Mumbai: More than 17 lakh government employees of Maharashtra have gone on an indefinite strike since Tuesday. The main demand of these employees is that the government should re-implement the Old Pension Scheme ie OPS, and if this does not happen then the strike will continue. At the same time, the government says that whatever the demands of the employees, they should be put on the proper table, otherwise the government will take strict action after going on strike. Why did the government employees go on strike like this? What will be its effect? What is the government doing? Let’s know:
The government tried to persuade, but…
Let us tell you that the Maharashtra government has also announced the formation of a panel on Monday to consider the old pension scheme. However, the employees are not ready to accept anything less than the announcement to implement the old pension scheme at any cost. Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis appealed to the employees to call off the strike. he/she said that we will form a committee to look into the demands of the employees, but things did not work out. The employees are not ready to accept anything less than the OPS announced by the government.
‘…then there will be disciplinary action’Meanwhile, the Maharashtra government has warned the employees that strict action will be taken if they join the strike. The government has said that disciplinary action will be taken against the government employees participating in the strike. According to the government, ‘this strike is illegal as per the provisions of Rule 6 of the Maharashtra Civil Services (Conduct). That’s why action will be taken against those who participated in the strike. Keeping in mind that the public should not face any problem, all the government employees of the state should withdraw their agitation and put their demands in front of the government properly.
Due to the strike of the employees in the hospitals, there is also a lot of trouble.
The strike will affect the general publicEmployees of state government, district councils, municipal councils and teachers of state government schools and colleges have also joined the strike. In such a situation, the evaluation of answer sheets of SSC and HSC examinations is likely to be affected. As teaching and non-teaching staff in schools and junior colleges will be part of the indefinite strike, it is also difficult to decide by when the copies of the examinations will be checked. Apart from this, the strike of the employees of municipal corporations and municipalities seems to have a great impact on the general public as well.
Patients are facing problems in hospitalsThis strike of the employees has come as a big challenge for the Shinde-Fadnavis government. Patients in the hospitals are also facing problems due to the strike by the employees of the hospitals. Apart from this, work has come to a standstill in Mumbai’s GST office today and all the employees have declared a holiday. There are reports of government press employees also taking part in the agitation and work has come to a standstill there too. If seen in such a situation, this strike has badly disturbed the normal life in Maharashtra.
