Lakhs of Central government employees, as per the call of the Confederation of CG Employees and Workers, are on strike today, 16th March 2017, protesting against the denial of Minimum Wage, adequate fitment in pay, restoration of various allowances etc. They are also protesting against non-implementation of promises by the Central Government, on which the indefinite strike was deferred last year. A government which does not keep its promises given to its own employees have lost all credibility.
The strike has started with massive participation. State government employees’ organisations, PSU organisation and others have extended full solidarity and support to the fully justified strike.
