Vijayawada : Expressing solidarity with the employees, teachers and pensioners who are demanding the State government to revert back to the old pension scheme, YSR Congress has said that Chandrababu Naidu has always taken a stand favouring the corporate houses with his anti-employees’ stand.
Speaking to reporters here on Wednesday party spokesperson K Parthasarathi has said, ‘the state has been taking anti-employee stand and has been using the police force to foil the democratic protest of employees, teachers and pensioners who have been protesting at the dharna chowk at Vijayawada.
Our leader YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has expressed solidarity with the employees who have been contending that the new Contributory Pension Scheme (CPS) would be faulty and social security depends on various factors of which the state has no control and it is better if the state reverts back to old pension scheme which is a time-tested one.
Chandrababu Naidu has always been favouring the corporate houses and business class and has never hidden his anti-employees’ stand. Even in his book ‘Manasuloni Mata’, he made it clear on his stand on pensions and the role of government employees.
He has been showing indifference towards employees by hiring contract workers or outsourcing the work which shows his mindset and when the employees are on dharna and wanted to meet him in the assembly he has pressed police force around the assembly.
The Chalo Assembly call was foiled by police and the state did not take any measures to bring the affected party to the negotiating table to sort out the problem but instead has been continuing with its anti-employees’ policies.
During his earlier term as well Chandrababu Naidu had done the same and invited the wrath of the employees and pensioners.
Our leader YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has expressed solidarity with the employees and said that the government would revert back to the old pension scheme, he said.
