During the election campaign, PM Narendra Modi had assured the people of the Manipur that his party was committed to implementing the seventh pay commission if the party comes to power in the state.

Releasing a letter copy sent to Chief Minister, Manipur Government Services Federation (MGSF) president, M Rajendra Singh, Left Front said if the government doesn’t issue any orders for the implementation of the 7th pay Commission then they will launch a “cease work strike” from February 27.

Till now, in Manipur, only 4th Pay Commission have been implemented and the state government employees have been demanding 7th Pay Commission for long.

If the 7th Pay Commission’s recommendations are implemented, the state government will have to bear an additional burden of Rs 1700 crore. This matter however did not reflect in the State Budget 2018-19.
