TEZPUR, Aug 28 - The All Assam District Administration Employees Association has threatened to launch an agitation in a vigorous manner if their long pending demands were not fulfilled soon.
In a press release, the employees body president Nirmal Kalita and secretary Harichandra Baruah alleged that the government has not been paying any attention to their various demands. Now frustrated with the government�s lackadaisical attitude, they would be forced to tread on the path of agitation that may hamper administration in the State.
It may be mentioned here that regarding the demands of the association, on February 6 last a discussion was held between the office-bearers of the association and Additional Chief Secretary MGVK Bhanu wherein the latter assured to make an increase Rs 300 in the grade pay of every employee working under the district administration authority.
It was followed by a sitting of the association�s representatives with the Chief Secretary in the presence of the Chief Minister and top officials of the finance department of the Government of Assam on June 30, and ultimately, a separate meeting with the Commissioner Secretary for effecting the assurance on �advance increment�.
The president and the secretary of the association also regretted that till date the government has not cleared the incentives payable to the those who offered service during the in the Lok Sabha and Assembly elections. Alleging that the government is making false commitments in every matter of the association, they expressed surprise that what the Chief Minister had promised during the June 30 meeting with the association representatives is yet to be met.
�Instead of dealing with the issue sincerely, the government machinery has been trying to escape from the issue very tactfully, for which the problems of the district administration employees� association has remained unfulfilled till date, leading to widespread resentment among the employees,� stated the press release.
Meanwhile, the association in its Sivasagar session on August 8 has decided to launch a series of movements in a vigorous manner from December 10 if the government does not show sincerity in addressing their grievances.
