Puducherry: BJP State President V Swaminathan asked Puducherry government to implement the 7th pay commission recommendations to the government employees.
He also on Saturday condemned government’s failure to implement pay commission award on the pretext of financial crisis.
In a statement he said there are only 30,000 government employees and the expenditure to the exchequer will be Rs.13 crore.
The government is collecting an amount of Rs 200 crore as tax revenue in a month and as such the salary for the government employees will come only 6.5 percent of the tax revenue being collected.
However, the state government is not implementing the pay commission to cast a black mark on the BJP government at the centre, he charged.
He wondered why the government which is citing financial crisis to implement the 7th pay commission recommendations is proving free rice and gas subsidy to the wealthy people and thus wasting an amount of Rs 100 crore.
He said ‘inefficiency” in governance and corruption were the main cause for the financial crisis and added that the BJP would seek from the Union Home Ministry to appoint a commission to inquire into the asset mobilization of the officials of the departments which had shown financial crisis for the last ten years.
