Kerala government is accused of taking acrimonious actions against its government employees over saying ‘No’ to one month salary deduction. The government is expecting all the state government employees to donate their salary of one month to help government rebuild Kerala. Although the deduction has not been made compulsory yet, but the government looks quite stern about it.
Many employees in Kerala have given their ‘No’ depending on their will and financial situation. Following this, one pro-LDF employee was transferred to a different office in a matter of few hours. However the transfer was stopped and he was sent back to his previous office after a minister intervened into the matter. The transfer is termed as government’s strong arm methods with its employees.
The UDF quarters are accusing the government’s move as a goondaexportion. They have a serious issue with the government’s attitude. Millions of Keralites have been affected by the floods. There is a huge section of government employees, who were affected by this disaster and faced a great deal of financial loss. Most of them also actively participated in rescue and relief efforts. There were financial expenses also done by the government employees during that.
Now after all this government’s demand of one month salary has come like a burden for them. There are other liabilities like loans, student’s education and household expenditures that will create financial crisis if government makes this compulsory. A massive number of employees do not welcome this move of government and see this as a financial stress.
