It is very timely that the Staff Side of the National Council has included the above issue in their Charter of Demands to the Government as part of the agitational programmes including Dharna on 19th November 2015.
This is an issue irritating the workers for a long time. After issuing the orders by the government restricting the compassionate ground appointment to 5% of the Direct Recruitment, many deserving family members have been denied of CGA. Many families are in the streets due to this arbitrary decision. The government should be sensitive to the families of those died in the service of the people.
The government should discuss with the Staff Side and concede the genuine demand. It should be then, made applicable to the PSUs, State Government employees etc. also.
Congratulations to the Staff Side for focusing this very important demand.
