MUMBAI: To resolve the strike of state government employees, a meeting of the employee unions was held at the Vidhan Bhavan under the chairmanship of Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and in the presence of Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis. The First Minister and the Deputy First Minister appealed that the decision to go on strike should be withdrawn while stating that it is accepted as a principle that officers and workers should live a safe and dignified life after retirement.
The participation of workers is important in the development of the state. The representatives of people and administration are the two wheels of the vehicle. Therefore, the government is not against the principle behind the demand to implement the old pension scheme. The government’s mindset is to find a way out of this. Discussions will be held to maintain the social security of the officers and workers after their retirement. A committee of administrative officers, retired employees will be appointed in this regard. Eknath Shinde said at present this committee will submit its report in a time bound manner.
Devendra Fadnavis made an important appeal to the workers this time too. For the states that have implemented this old retirement plan, their road map is still not ready. The policy adopted by the state government regarding this scheme will not allow any loss to the employees who have retired earlier. Stating that the state government will not take any role and neither should the workers, Devendra Fadnavis asked the workers’ unions to cooperate to find a way through the discussion.
