Government employees in Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday threatened a one-day strike on January 28 if government fails to implement recommendations of the Sixth Pay Commission in the state.
"If government fails to announce implementation of sixth pay commission in Jammu and Kashmir by January 27, all government and public sector undertaking employees in the state would go on the strike on January 28," Jammu Joint Committee (JCC) members Ram Kumar Sharma and Gaffoor Dar told reporters.
Its other demands are enhancement of age from 58 to 60, rectifying of pay anomalies and increase in daily wages.
"If government failed in this, over five lakh employees will go on strike on January 28 and it will bring the government's working to a halt," Dar said.
The duo alleged that NC-led government has been delaying the implementation of the sixth pay commission and such a stand of the government would result in a violent agitation by the employees.
"Over 20 states have already implemented the six pay commission. Despite the promise made by the state governor to implement it and one of the main points in the election manifesto of Congress and NC parties, nothing has being done," Dar claimed.
