Congress to take to street against Cabinet decision of its own alliance govt

Published

Mumbai: Troubles in the Punjab government is not yet over but fissures started appearing among the ally partners of Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government in Maharashtra. They have now come to open. A couple of days after a senior Congress leader’s letter to Mharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshiyari, the Congress has decided to hit streets opposing its own government’s decision of a multi-member ward system for the upcoming civic polls in the state.

The grand old party is also a part of the MVA government and its demonstration is likely to aggravate the ongoing tussle between the three allies in the state. This is to recall that last week, the Maharashtra Cabinet decided to have a three-member ward system, instead of one member per ward, in the municipal corporations and councils.

However, the government retained the single-member ward system in the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC). During its meeting, the Maharashtra Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) passed a resolution opposing the cabinet decision on multi-member wards in urban civic bodies.

The Congress is demanding a two-member ward system in the state. “We won’t talk to the chief minister Uddhav Thackeray anymore over this issue, we will now take this issue to the streets,” Nana Patole, Maharashtra Pradesh Congress Committee president, said.

The issue even resonated in the Cabinet meeting on September 28, 2021 with the Congress ministers raising the demand for two-member wards. But the Maharashtra Chief Minister firmly rejected the proposal.

After the decision by the cabinet last week, several Congress office bearers and district presidents had opposed the multi-member ward system. The party had decided to send a memorandum to the Maharashtra CM, demanding a two member ward system.

But with CM Uddhav Thackeray putting his foot down and rubbishing the demand, the Congress has now decided to fight it out among people. 18 municipal corporations including BMC, Thane, Pune, Aurangabad, Nagpur, Nashik are expected to go to the polls early next year. The latest squabble has added to the never-ending list of contentious issues in the three-party Maha Vikas Aghadi government, led by Uddhav.

Call me “Dada”, not “Sir”, Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb to employees

Agartala: In what appears to be a step to boost the morale of the government employees, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Sunday asked the government employees to call him “Dada” instead of “Sir”. “Call me Dada, not sir. It enhances the warmth of the relationship”, Deb told a gathering of government employees.

Deb exhorted the government employees of the state especially ASHA and Anganwadi workers of the state asking them not to dishearten as the state government was eager to improve their pay structure.

“I salute the ASHA and Anganwadi workers of my state. The level of dedication that my sisters have shown during the pandemic period deserved applause. I know, they want to hear good news from me and I am assuring you all that this government will not disappoint anyone”, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb told a gathering of government employees at Badharghat sports school field organized by Vivekananda Vicha Manch (VVM).

VVM has emerged as a big platform of government employees, of late, and Sunday’s public rally was its first big gathering to thank the Chief Minister for the series of steps his government took for the welfare of the employees.

“I know what challenges you people are facing. Nothing is hidden in front of me. I am assuring you all everything will be taken care of in the due course of time”, he added.  Lauding the efforts of government employees Deb said, without them no government office can function.

“Due to the efforts of government employees, people can access the benefits of the state sponsored welfare schemes. But, for a prolonged period the employees did not get their right to do something freely. They were trapped in the clutches of unions. In the previous regime, Left sponsored unions used to enjoy supreme power which had reduced the whole work culture of the state to tatters. In 2018, you people showed courage and voted BJP to power”, said Deb.

“Despite fund constraints, the state government is positively working on the issues of DA and other factors pertaining to the interest of the government employees. Our government has already addressed a number of issues related to financial benefits. The ad-hoc promotion, increment for Group D, Group C employees, regularization of SSA teachers, seventh pay scale, UGC scale for professors, special benefit for LTC are to name a few. All these indicate what we want to do and we shall do what we promise”, the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister also asked the officials not to call him “sir” suggesting them to refer to him as “Dada” as it makes the relationship stronger and cherished. The Chief Minister also distributed clothes among children of Badharghat sports school during the programme. State BJP President Manik Saha, Minister Ram Prasad Paul, Minister Sushanta Chowdhury, MLA Mimi Majumder, state BJP Vice President and president of Vivekananda Vichar Manch Rajib Bhattacharjee also spoke on the occasion.
