Deputy commissioner (DC) Makrand K Pandurang claimed that essential services would not be disturbed during the government and roadway employees proposed strike from January 20-23.
Talking to media persons at Panchayat Bhawan here on Saturday, Pandurang said the administration had made elaborate arrangements to maintain the law and order situation. A toll free number: 18001-801370 had also been activated for the residents to lodge their complaints, if any, he said, adding that, although, the government had urged employees against going on the strike, if they persist, they would be dealt with sternly.
Responsibilities have been entrusted on the district officer to ensure normal functioning.
"No road blockade or breach of peace would be allowed," DC said, further adding that employees would mark their presence thrice in a day during the strike period and protection would be provided to employees who remain on duty.
Meanwhile, the administration has ordered closure of all government and private schools in the district from January 20 to 23, owing to dip in temperature.
