Punjab Congress seeks implementation of Pay Commission recommendations immediately
The working president of the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee Lal Singh today demanded the immediate implementation of the recommendations of the Sixth Pay Commission in the state.
He pointed out, the Chairman of the Punjab Pradesh Congress Campaign Committee, Capt Amarinder Singh has been demanding for a long time its implementation, but the state government was delaying it and hence denying its employees the crucial benefits.
In a statement issued here today, Singh observed, the state government seems to be deliberately delaying the implementation of the pay commission recommendations. He said, the government was just holding out the lollypop to the employees that the recommendations would be implemented after the elections.

The PCC working president pointed out, the Election Commission of India had already cleared the implementation of the pay commission recommendations. Now it was solely upto the state government to implement it. “Any delay in implementing the recommendations would simply mean that the state government was not sincere towards its own employees”, he remarked, while adding, it (the state government) can no longer take the refuge under the excuse that due to the imposition of the election code of conduct the recommendations cannot be implemented.
