Chandigarh, May 13, 2019: Pawan Kumar Bansal, Congress candidate for Lok Sabha election today assured UT employees that once elected as MP he will ensure their demands are met. He was addressing them outside the Sector 9 secretariat where they had gathered in his support.
Pawan Kumar Bansal, Congress Lok Sabha Candidate has assured the UT employees that he will ensure that the original cadre system of appointment and transfers is implemented in the UT Administration departments.
UT employees who have been facing problems because of the inter-department policy met Pawan Kumar Bansal with their demand that despite CAT and High Court order against it, the said policy has not been withdrawn by the UT Administration.
The Congress Candidate also said he would resolve the issue of centralized cadre of UT employees as per which Chandigarh Administration has centralized the recruitment, according to which an employee can be transferred to any department from his parent department. This has caused a lot of resentment among the employees as they are being put to assignments which they are not experienced in.
The employees raised the demands including pay commission benefits not having passed on to them, outsourcing of employees, allotment of societies for UT employees, free medical scheme and filling up of vacant posts.
Pawan Kumar Bansal while addressing them said last five years have been full of disappointment as Kirron Kher had not been able to have a connect with Chandigarh residents. He said he had listed a number of UT employees demands in his manifesto which would be met once he’s elected as MP.
He said he will get the contract system modified, besides reverting to original transfer policy, housing scheme at reasonable rates with no profiteering, group housing scheme in vacant land near IT park, pay commission implementation, conducive working environment for employees etc.
Among prominent present were Bhupinder Singh Gill, Honorary President INTUC Chandigarh; Balwinder Singh, General Secretary, INTUC Chandigarh; Harjinder Singh, Vice President INTUC Chandigarh; Vijay Saini, Senior Vice President, INTUC Chandigarh; RPS Chopra, Adviser INTUC Chandigarh among others.
