The Rajasthan government’s ministerial staff and the roadways employees have launched a campaign for electing a “favourable” ruling dispensation after calling off their fortnight-long strike following the enforcement of model code of conduct with the announcement of dates for the State Assembly polls.The Assembly elections will be held in Rajasthan on December 7. The government employees’ demands during the strike pertained to the Seventh Pay Commission’s implementation, recruitment of staff, retirement benefits and increased pay grades. The roadways employees demanded purchase of new buses and better amenities in addition to the salary hike.‘Deliberate delay’The employees were forced to end their agitation without any positive result because the State government could not announce any new financial decisions, grants or administrative measures during the model code of conduct. The employees’ leaders alleged that the State government had deliberately delayed taking a decision so that the election-related restrictions could come into force.Extraordinary leaveWith any decision on the employees’ demands having been shifted to the next regime, the BJP government has announced that the strike period would be counted as extraordinary leave and the salaries of the agitating staff deducted. This has further infuriated the employees.Federation of Ministerial Staff president Manoj Saxena said here on Monday that thousands of government employees and their families across the State would vote against the BJP and apprise the people of the ruling party’s failure to fulfil its own promises made in the 2013 election manifesto. “We have taken a pledge for making a ‘BJP-mukt’ Rajasthan,” he said.The employees, who wanted to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi during the BJP’s rally in Ajmer on Saturday, were prevented from going there and detained by the police at several places.
