Regularization of temp employees a political gimmick: SKM

GANGTOK, 13 Aug: Sikkim Krantikari Morcha MLAs have jointly demanded that the State Government immediately release the salaries to all Muster Roll and Work Charged employees of Energy & Power Department and second installment of Dearness Allowance [from the month of July] of all Government employees.
In a press release issued on behalf of all SKM MLAs, Shyari MLA Kunga Nima Lepcha alleges that the regularization proposal of the SDF Government has been proved to be nothing but a pre-poll political gimmick to woo MR and WC employees to vote for SDF in the last Assembly and Lok Sabha Elections.
By not paying salaries to these MR and WC employees the state government is depriving them of their legitimate rights which is a clear violation of the Fundamental Rights so guaranteed by the Constitution and provisions under the Human Rights Act where each every citizen is guaranteed dignified living, Mr. Lepcha argues.
He further alleges that the state government is depriving its employees of legitimate benefits like medical reimbursements on the false pretext of a financial crunch. This, he adds, is proven by the provision of costly vehicles to Ministers and appointment of numerous chairpersons and advisors with cabinet ranks.
The SKM MLA has further accused the Chief Minister of not keeping his promise of denying any extension of service or reappointment of government officials. Mr Lepcha has alleged that an official in the Roads and Bridges department has been reappointed which, he adds, goes against the assurance given by the CM in the last Assembly session.
The party has also demanded immediate regularization of other MR and WC employees as assured by the state government.
