Supporting the demand of government employees for implementation of the 6th pay commission, opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday asked Jammu and Kashmir government to implement the recommendations without any delay.
"All political parties are committed to implementation of the 6th Pay Commission recommendations in favour of the state government employees and the same must be implemented without any further delay to avoid any confrontation on the issue", a PDP spokesman said in a statement in Srinagar on Tuesday.
He said delaying the implementation of the recommendations would neither serve the purpose of the government nor the employees.
Expressing solidarity with the employees, the spokesman said PDP would always support their genuine demands to ensure better performance and delivery of services by the employees.
The employees have called a one-day strike tomorrow to press for implementation of the pay panel report in the state.
The National Conference-Congress coalition government has agreed to implement the recommendations but sought time to look for resources to implement the same.
"We do not believe in hollow slogans. To meet the recommendations, the state exchequer has to generate resources to meet the additional financial burden but the government is positive on the issue and the employees will hear good news soon", Finance Minister Abdul Rahim Rather had said.
