Cong slams, NCP backs Maharashtra govt’s decision of 5-days working for state employees
Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], Feb 13 (ANI): The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) on Thursday sponsored the verdict of Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) govt to put into effect 5 days per week norm for the state govt staff, even because the Congress has slammed the verdict.
Interestingly, each the Congress and the NCP are coalition companions within the Maharashtra govt led via Shiv Sena leader Uddhav Thackeray.
While Congress chief Sanjay Nirupam on Thursday slammed the Maharashtra govt for adopting 5 running days per week, NCP spokesman and state minister Nawab Malik defended the verdict.
“Sanjay Nirupam must know that 5 days running for presidency staff used to be an concept mooted via (former Prime Minister) the overdue Rajiv Gandhi. So as an alternative of opposing it, he must admire this,” Nawab Malik stated.
Nirupam had termed the verdict as “mindless” and requested for the cause of giving two vacations per week.
“A mindless resolution via Maharashtra Govt to offer a 5-day running week for state staff. What’s the purpose in having two vacations each week? Govt staffs are already notorious for laziness. Are we rewarding them for his or her kamchori?” Nirupam had tweeted.
The state govt on Wednesday authorized the verdict to put into effect 5 days per week norm for the federal government staff from February 29. (ANI)
