SILCHAR, Feb 25 � In sync with the All Assam Civic Bodies Workers Federation (AACBWF), members of the Silchar Municipal Employees Union, an affiliated body of the AACBWF, on Tuesday began their three-day protest programme demanding provincialisation of their service.

Paritosh Dey, president of the Silchar Municipal Employees Union said they have been demanding provincialisation of service since 30 years in various phases. But the State Government has paid no heed to their cry, he added.

He informed that on September 4, 2013, the government agreed and recommended for departmental approval. He further said that while all the departments had nodded in favour of the demand, the finance department did not agree which delayed the approval in the floor of the Assembly.

�The employees are being deprived of service security and basic enmities. The AACBWF had placed the matter before the Chief Minister. Unfortunately no action was taken to solve the stalemate,� Dey said.

Interestingly, according to the protesters, they are getting their salaries as per provisions of the Fifth State Pay Commission. Also the agitating employees have alleged that there has been no effort to release the arrear amount, pending since 2010, along with the pension for the retired employees.

On the other hand, asked about disruption in public service because of their protest, the union president said the government is responsible for the inconvenience as they had already intimidated the government about their protest two weeks ago. �But the government failed to respond due to which they had no options but to launch the phase one of their protest,� he said.
