TS government will be the most employee-friendly one: KCR

Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao on Tuesday gladdened the hearts of employees when he announced that he would finalise pay revision by the third week of January, 2015 and promised that the Telangana government will be the most employee-friendly one among all the States.

Amid thunderous applause at the packed Ravindra Bharathi, he said he would firm up the Pay Revision Commission and announce it after Sankranti. “Depending upon our revenue projections, I promise you it will be very liberal. Only when employees are taken into confidence, can any government deliver public services better,” he said.

Sop spree continues
He was speaking after releasing the 2015 calendar and diary of the Telangana Non-Gazetted Officers Association (TNGOA), in the presence of Telangana Legislative Council Chairman K. Swamy Goud, Ministers T. Harish Rao, P. Mahender Reddy and Tummala Nageswara Rao, association president Deviprasad and Joint Action Committee Chairman M. Kodandaram. TNGOA president Deviprasad presided.

Continuing the shower of boons, he said houses under Rajiv Swagruha would be allotted to employees at cost basis and that a decision would soon be taken after examining the legal standpoint on payment of salaries to employees for the 42-day general strike. On health cards too, he said the Telangana government’s health cards would be a model for other States.

Thrust areas
Explaining the thrust areas of the new government in the 29 State of the Indian republic, Mr. Rao said it would be welfare, agriculture and industrial development and then the rest. “My trust in government employees can never be shaken. Whether it is setting up power generation facilities or the drinking water grid, they can do it as well as the private players I have kept out, much against advice,” he said.

“This government started with just 41 IAS and IPS officers. Let the allocation of All India Services officers get over and I will begin filling vacancies across all government departments at different levels. Only then can all our plans get the shape we want and we will take the new State forward,” the Chief Minister said.
