Parminder Dhindsa bats for a Commission to fix Salaries, Allowances & Pensions of MLAs & Ministers

Chandigarh, July 13, 2021 (Yes Punjab News)
Punjab Government’s acceptance of the recommendations of the Sixth Pay Commission and the announcement to increase salaries and pensions to pensioners is no less than a hoax and conspiracy of the Captain’s Government.

Disclosing this here today senior leader of Shiromani Akali Dal (Sanyukt), MLA and former Finance Minister, Mr. Parminder Singh Dhindsa said that the state government’s decision to implement the Sixth Pay commission’s notification is just to attain political gain and to prepare their political ground for the upcoming Assembly elections 2022.

The notification has been issued by manipulating the statistics just to please the employees, while the actually the Captain Government is betraying the employees.

Addressing the press at Punjab Bhawan here today, Mr. Parminder Singh Dhindsa said that the Punjab Government had announced a 259 percent increase for the employees. But if we look at the past performance of the government, the government has so far remained silent on the payment of arrears of salaries and DA to the employees from January 1, 2016 to June 30, 2021.

“In addition, the government is completely silent on the arrears to be given to the employees from January 1, 2016 to June 30, 2021, and the arrears of Dearness Allowance (DA) as per the recommendations of the new pay Commission. The government has not yet clarified the salary alongwith the percentage of DA that is to be paid to the employees as per the increased scales from July 2021,” said Mr. Dhindsa.

The former Finance Minister said that as per the new notification, the government needs Rs. 25,000 crore to provide around 5 lakh employees in the state whereas the Finance Minister has provided only Rs 8,000 crore in the budget for the year 2021-22.

“The Finance Minister had promised in his budget speech to clear all arrears from October 2021 to January 2022 but no mention of this has been made in the notification issued by the Punjab government” said Mr. Dhindsa.

Mr. Parminder Singh Dhindsa further demanded that the Punjab Government should immediately take back right to fix the salaries, allowances and pensions of the MLAs and Ministers and a Commission should be set up in this regard.

He said that the Punjab Government has reduced the existing rates of House Rent Allowance and Rural Allowance in the Sixth Salary Recommendations, which is not reasonable. In addition, the NPAs of doctors who are currently risking their lives during the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, which used to be part of their salaries in all respects, have been excluded. It is now made as an allowance only.

Only with false statistics, the government is trying to lure the employees. The ground reality is that if better plans had been drawn up in the budget presented by the Congress government in previous years, there would have been no need to manipulate statistics by issuing such notification.

It seems that the task of the Captain Government is just to mislead the people including the employees of the state”, said Mr. Dhindsa. on this occasion senior party leader s. Harsukhinder singh (Bubby Badal), S. Harjinder singh Bobby Garcha, Sh Rishipal Guladi and OSD Jaswinder Singh also present.
