ITANAGAR, Oct. 12: The State Government today claimed that all government departments, including in districts, worked normally on the second day of the pen and tool down strike called by the CoSAAP.
A release from the Chief Secretary’s office said that reports received from Deputy Commissioners such as Lower Siang, Tawang, Namsai, Lower Dibang Valley, Yupia, West Kameng, etc. stated that all officers and staff attended their respective offices and functioned normally.
Sporadic instances of participation in the pen and tool down agitation were reported and accordingly Dies non with resultant break in service has been initiated against such delinquent employees.
The release said the government is committed to employee welfare, transparency and efficient delivery of public services. The government is firmly resolved to undertake all necessary steps, measures and actions to ensure the progress, development and wellbeing of all the people of the state at large, it added.
In-charge Chief Secretary Dr. Ashish Chandra Verma inspected the Civil Secretariat, Itanagar and other offices today along with a team of senior officers.

APCC condemns CM’s statement

ITANAGAR, Oct 12: The Arunachal Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC)   extending solidarity with CoSAAP today condemned punitive action threatened by Chief Minister Pema Khandu against striking government employees. 
In a statement issued here today, the APCC said threatening the employees openly in a public meeting at Pasighat exposed Khandu’s fascist nature.
Calling CoSAAP agitation an ‘individual benefit oriented’ and colouring the fair demand as politically motivated is an “objectionable statement’ and shows Pema Khandu stooping so low, it said.  It further termed the CoSAAP demand genuine and said Central government has implemented the 7th Pay Commission which the State government is duty bound to implement in toto.
During Congress rule in the state, 5th and 6th CPC was implemented in full for the larger interest of the government employees and the public, APCC said and asked why the BJP government   is reluctant to implement it?
