New Delhi, Feb 10: The Left front has questioned BJP government over implementation of seventh pay commission in Manipur. During the election campaign, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had assured the people of Tripura that his party is committed to implementing seventh pay commission if it comes to power in the northeastern state.

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

Till now in the state, only four pay commissions have been implemented till now and the state has been demanding seven pay commission from long. BJP promised to deliver seventh pay commission during the election but failed to do. In a state where the government is among the highest job-generating agency, the lure of higher pay scales serves as a big pull for the state’s employed as well as the job aspirants.

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