Edappadi K Palaniswami
On Monday The tangential All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) conveyor and newly-elected MLA in the Tamil Nadu Secretariat, TTV Dhinakaran condemned Chief Minister Edappadi K Palanisamy over information of special buses being approved for the MLAs amidst the continuing bus strike in the state. "At the time of the crisis if this government passes the bill, people will laugh at us". "There is no need for a hike in salaries of MLAs when the government has been stating that there is a financial crunch in the state whenever ministers are speaking on transport employees strike", said Stalin. The employees are in fact set to intensify protests after the state government issued notices to almost 60,000 workers for abstaining from work on 5 and 6 January, reports The Times of India.
Legislators in Tamil Nadu have moved a proposal to hike their salaries by almost 100% amid a crippling strike by thousands of transport workers seeking better wages, in a move condemned by the opposition and trade unions.
As many as 17 trade unions launched the indefinite strike from January 4, with scores of Tamil Nadu State Transport Corporation (TNSTC) staff joining the protest.
Following the strike, the Madras High Court issued orders on January 5 and January 7 demanding that protesters return to work.
The Tamil Nadu government that has been in talks with trade unions has refused to agree to their wage revision citing a cash crunch. The court also directed the state government to address the grievances of the employees and pay them their dues immediately.
He added that opposition leader M.K. Stalin should hold a meeting with the unions backed by the DMK and the CITU and urge them to get back to work. The court also said that none of the striking workers can be terminated from service without the permission of the court.
