Pen-down agitation on Nov 22-23
The Northeastern states are demanding 7th Pay Commission recommendations for a long time and now Mizoram has observed a Mass-Casual Leave Agitation conducted by all the government officials recently.
A three-day long agitation was conducted just after the Pen-down strike by the officials that was conducted on November 22-23.
The agitation was called by Federation of Mizoram Government Employees and Workers(FMGE&W) as according to them the state government has failed to fulfill the demands of the government officials under the Seventh Pay Commission.
During this three day agitation, all the governmental work came to a halt and all the state government officials joined the agitation to awake the government of the state.
In an addition, the Ministers also showed reluctance to their offices as all the officials were absent from their working place.
On the other hand, the state government has urged the officials to call off the strike as this may affect the routine work in the state.
The state Finance Minister Lalsawta has expressed his regrets that despite the Government urged, the officials continued to agitate in the state.
Making the statement on the matter, Lalsawta said, “We want to fulfill the demands of the employees and Chief Ministers Lal Thanhawla has even recommended the implementation of Central Pay Panel recommendation. We can’t say when, but we will implement it and has set-up a committee in this regard”.
