On the final day of campaigning for Madhya Pradesh meeting bypolls, state Congress chief Kamal Nath accused the BJP dispensation within the state of decreasing the retirement age of Class-IV authorities workers, which Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan dubbed as a “hearsay”.
In a tweet, Mr Nath mentioned the ruling BJP has introduced down the age of retirement of Class-IV workers from 62 years to 60 years, prompting the BJP authorities to concern a clarification about it.
“The choice by the Shivraj Singh Chouhan authorities to scale back the retirement age of Class IV workers from 62 years to 60 years once more. That is deception with Class IV workers. This resolution will create a disaster for them,” Mr Nath mentioned in on the micro-blogging web site.
Mr Chouhan replied to the Congress chief’s tweet saying, “You might be spreading rumours seeing the upcoming defeat of Congress (within the by-elections). This disgusting work can solely be achieved by you and your occasion.”
Mr Chouhan mentioned that the state governments order was solely meant for the non permanent class-fourth workers appointed within the ministers employees.
“Quite the opposite, the state authorities has elevated the age restrict for such workers (appointed in minister’s employees throughout their tenure) to 60-years, which was to this point 40-years,” he mentioned.
Later within the day, the state authorities’s Basic Administration Division issued a clarification on this regard.
It mentioned that there isn’t any change within the age restrict for Class IV workers, aside from these appointed quickly within the minister’s employees throughout their tenure.
Mr Nath later thanked the federal government for the clarification and mentioned that the Congress would proceed to struggle for the rights of the staff.
