DA merger and Retirement Age – Congress led one day dharna at Jantar Mantar to oppose Central Government’s move to lower Retirement Age and for merging dearness allowance with Pay of Central Government Employees
Former Union Minister and Delhi Congress president Ajay Maken, along with party workers, will sit on a day-long dharna on Tuesday at Jantar Mantar seeking merger of Dearness Allowance (DA) with basic pay and also to oppose the move by the BJP-led Central Government to lower the retirement age of Government employees.
Delhi Congress chief spokesperson Sharmistha Mukherjee said thousands of Congress workers, Government employees, teachers, pensioners and others will join Maken in the dharna to press for their demand for merger of DA with basic pay and also to oppose the move to lower the retirement age of Government employees.
She said the intentions of the NDA Government became clear when the BJP-led Haryana Government lowered the retirement age of the State Government employees from 60 to 58 as soon as it came to power, which has sent out an ominous message to the Central Government employees.Maken had previously gone on a dharna to demand the constitution of the 6th CPC, and had also raised the issue in the floor of Lok Sabha. The 6th Pay Commission was later constituted and its recommendations were implemented by the UPA Government. At the Press conference, senior Congress leader Chattar Singh was also present.
