Aizawl, Sept 20: All employees under the government of Mizoram should be given due care and allow to avail their rights or due share as they are the backbone of the economy of the state, says Federation of Mizoram Government Employees & Workers President Er. R.Lalrammawia.
Addressing the release function of Census of Govt. Employees & Workers, Aizawl District 2015 last Friday, FMGE&W President Er. R.Lalrammawia said vested interest who keep on slandering towards employees have been considerably increasing since recently. He added that the notion that state government employees are comparatively well paid in term of salary than their counterpart under central service is also totally wrong.
As for the employees working under the government of Mizoram, said R.Lalrammawia, they are not even entitle to Transport Allowance and Children Educational Allowance given to employees working under Central government or other state government. Besides, the Mizoram government has stop using LTC system since 10 years and as regard 113% of DA, only 41% is given in practice, he said, adding that he is greatly disheartened by the accusation that Muster Roll employment has been misused by the officials for their personal gain.
According to FMGE&W President 70% of the state economy is contributed by government employees. “Impeding or putting restrict on service sector would have severe impact on our economy which would further affect both the public mass and the government”, he said.
