WB govt employees ordered to be in offices on strike day

Press Trust of India  |  Kolkata 

Opposing Monday's strike call by Left parties against demonetisation, the government today ordered all its employees to attend offices on November 28 and the following day.

"No employee of the state government will be granted leave on that day. In the event of any employee remaining absent without sufficient reason, the absence will be treated as dies non," Chief Secretary Basudeb said.



The state finance department has issued a circular stating that all employees would be required to attend office on Monday and Tuesday and exceptions would be made only in case of bereavement, maternity leave, hospitalisation and other 'genuine reasons'.

An employee failing to attend on both the days would compromise a day's pay barring reasons other than above, he said.

"We oppose bandhs. We will take out a protest march (against demonetisation) on Monday," state Chief Minister told reporters while leaving the state secretariat 'Nabanna' this evening.

The state government would take all measures to maintain law and order and normal functioning of public services, the Chief Secretary said.

He said that all the offices, agencies and institutions of the state government would remain open on Monday and steps would be taken to ensure and security of citizens and their properties.
