Employees Distancing From Naidu?

Employees Distancing From Naidu?

Telugu Desam Party president and Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu was considered to be a dictator and a tough nut to crack for the state government employees before 2004 which was one of the reasons why he had lost power to the Congress then.

In 2014, Naidu played every trick to woo the employees, He promised that he was a changed man and his government would be totally employee friendly.

He proved his point to a large extent by providing them all the facilities and giving them all the sops to get them shifted from Hyderabad to Amaravati including five-day week, additional incentives and provision of quarters for employees.

However, of late, Naidu has been acting tough with the employees, as he felt he has become too lenient for them and they are taking him easy. So, he  has started taking stringent action against the employees who are indulging in corruption or getting away without doing any work.

A couple of days ago, two section officers were suspended by the government on the allegations of leaking an age limit draft copy of government employees to the media. The suspended employees belong to the Water Resources department and Law department.

The suspension has caused an uproar among the AP Secretariat staff with the employees staging a protest. They demanded Secretariat Employees Association president Muralikrishna to intervene in the issue following which he held talks with the suspended employees and assured to take up the matter with the government.

The employees are also not taking it kindly the installation of CC cameras all over the Secretariat. They are of the view that Naidu has no faith in them and is suspecting their integrity. So, they wanted the CC cameras to be removed.

A lot of disgruntlement is brewing among the employees for the delay in payment of pay revision arrears and DA arrears. Such measures is said to be distancing  the employees from the ruling TDP, say sources.
