The state had on December 2 this year announced that it would provide benefits to its nearly 12.5 lakh employees and pensioners with effect from January 1 this year under the Seventh Pay Panel recommendations.

Protesting against this announcement, a large number of state employees gathered at Ram Niwas Garden here on Sunday to take out a protest rally to the Civil Lines area. The employees plan to stage protests under the banner of Akhil Rajya Karamchari Sankyukt Sangarsh Samiti.

On December 8, they will go on mass leave while on December 11, they will observe 48-hour fast. On December 12, they will observe a pen-down protest and on December 13, there will be a massive protest staged at district headquarters. The "failures" of the ruling BJP in meeting its promises will be highlighted on this occasion.

The employees will highlight the 14-point charter announced by BJP before the state polls which promised equal pay scale of state employees with that of central

The protest will remind the BJP of its "failed promises" at a time when it celebrates its four years of formation of in the state, said Rathore.
