APNGOs Vs Jagan: The deadlock between Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and Andhra Pradesh Non-Gazetted Officers (APNGOs) continues and looks like it will intensify further as days go by. The APNGOs Joint Action Committee (JAC), which is continuing its strike and protest, said that it will not keep quiet until all the pending issues of the employees are cleared by Jagan government. But the state government is planning to wash its hands off by presenting the clarification on PRC!
APNGOs JAC said that even after the state government agrees for 11th PRC, they will not withdraw from strike because there are list of other demands which needed to be addressed by the CM. The primary one is to resolve the issue of CPS system but it has been dodging the issue on the pretext of Ministers’ Committee. The reimbursement dues mounted to Rs 23 crore. Amaravati JAC leader Bopparaju Venkateswarlu said that the YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) and its chief promised to do away with CPS system immediately after it came to power.
“Even after three years in power, the state government has not bothered to look into CPS system. They have taken NGOs for granted because they were crucial for YSRCP’s win in the last elections. This time we will not calm down until the state government clears all the pending issues,” Venkateswarulu said. Their demands include regularisation of contract employees, release of all the pending DA allowances, and to raise the salaries of ASHA, Anagawadi and ANM Workers in the state.
The JAC clearly said that they will not take any alternative for CPS withdrawal. In the same breath they demanded that all the contract and outsourcing employees should be given PRC immediately. Apart from these, they also demanded the state government to meet the non-financial demands of the employees.
The APNGOs JAC said it would soon announce its plan of action for protests across the state. This December 13, the NGOs would protest in front of all the mandal offices across the state. Amaravati JAC head said “They were patiently waiting for the state government to remove CPS system for the last three years because they had respect for CM Jagan. Now they will not rest until all their pending issues are addressed by the CM and all the dues are cleared for the employees.”
