Kolkata: State government employees owing allegiance to the CPI-M affiliated Coordination Committee on Wednesday warned the West Bengal government of huge protest if the government fails to address the demands including unpaid salaries, pensions, allowance of the employees.

Coming down heavily over the reluctant approach of the Mamata Banerjee government, Ananta Bandyopadhyay, General Secretary, Coordination Committee said “The Chief Minister had assured the employee’s associations across the state of providing support to us. But the government has completed six months in power and nothing has been done yet to mitigate our problem.”

It is noteworthy that CM Mamata Banerjee has called a meeting of all the government employee’s associations in the state soon after coming to power and has assured of extending support to raise their status.

He further said that the government itself has created the condition of financial slowdown by increasing the non-plan expenditures. Nothing was done to check the government extravagances.

The Coordination Committee said that the pensions of many retired employees were stopped and many of the employees have not even received their salary.

Bandyopadhyay said that the committee has approached the CM for deliberations but she refused to hold any meeting in this regard.
