WELFARE OF EMPLOYEES
MANY PROBLEMS SOLVED AND MORE WILL BE RESOLVED
There was a time when even the monthly salaries of the employees could not be paid due to the financial crisis in the State. Even for agitating to receive salaries in time, the employees were made to suffer pay cut up to 16 days. The leaders of the employees’ association were not only suspended but were also sent to the jail. The employees of the State have not perhaps forgotten such things.
After 2001 onwards, the employees experienced a changed environment. The Sodou Asom Karmachari Parishad (SAKP) submitted their demands afresh before the Congress Government. As directed by the Chief Minister, a high level Committee was formed in 2003 under the leadership of the then Additional Chief Secretary, Shri S. Kabilan, and a series of discussions were held between that Committee and Sodou Asom Karmachari Parishad (SAKP). Through these discussions with the Chief Minister of Assam and the Chief Secretary, the long pending demands of employees were solved one after another.
