Telugu Desam Party (TDP) MLC P Ashok Babu, on Tuesday, asked the State government, why the salaries of government employees have not been paid till date though the ruling party leaders claim that the financial condition of the State is very healthy and comfortable.

Speaking to the media persons on Tuesday, Ashok Babu asked the State government why the situation has come to such a pass that the employees are forced to stage dharnas in front of the district collectorates demanding payment of their salaries.

Observing that the State is now passing the 1959 crisis wherein the staff members could not get their salaries on time, Ashok Babu said that the ruling party cannot claim that the salaries of 13 lakh employees are paid on the first of every month. He is of the opinion that Chief Minister, Jagan Mohan Reddy, could not pay the salaries as the State failed to get loans and said that the ruling party is adopting a vengeful attitude towards its own employees.

The MLA alleged that even the retirement benefits amounting to Rs 2,200 cr too are not paid yet and further alleged that the situation is so bad that even the insurance premium too is not paid till now. He claimed that the Jagan government has kept on hold a whopping Rs 27.150 cr which is due to the employees, including the Dearness Allowance arrears for the contract, outsourcing, and regular employees. He said that the government quota of Rs 800 cr under the Contributory Pension Scheme (CPS) has also not been paid.
