Accusing the officers for unnecessary blocking the implementation of the understanding reached with the government on its various demands the Uttarakhand Secretariat Association has threatened to start an indefinite strike from December 7. The two day winter session of Uttarakhand assembly is commencing in Gairsain Chamoli from December 7. A meeting of the general body of the powerful association of the secretariat workers was held at ATM chowk in the secretariat on Tuesday.
The president of the association, Deepak Joshi said that on October 14 this year a written agreement was inked between the general administration department and the secretariat association on various demands. He said that the implementation on the agreement has not started yet. Joshi said that the apathetic attitude of the officials on a sensitive issue like Golden health card scheme persists even after the cabinet decision on it. He said that the association now demands that Government Orders (GO) for all the points covered in the agreement should be immediately issued.
Announcing the programme of phased protest, Joshi said that two hour work boycott would be undertaken from November 24 and from November 29 the boycott would be increased to three hour. On December 2 and 3 the association has given a call for work boycott of four hours and on Monday December 6 the association would review the situation.
