300 Tripura govt. employees seek leave for demonstration in Delhi

As many as 300 state government employees from different departments sought leave at a time to attend a one day sit-in-demonstration on March 2 next at New Delhi organised by left backed employees' organisation of West Bengal, Kerala and Tripura protesting against the policies of central government.

According to report, all of them sought leave for the agitation though as per government circular it is illegal except for the member of executive committee of a recognised employee's union. They are entitled to get 10 days special casual leave in a year for travelling outside the state.

The administration faced a problem in dealing with the situation, as 90 per cent of employees who went for Delhi are not entitled to get such leave. But all of them left for Delhi just submitting the leave application to the respective offices.

Official sources here today confirmed that most of the head of offices asked view of finance department and administrative department to handle the cases. However, since the program is organised by the left parties, the administration was little lenient to be tough to the violators.

"Most of them left state on Feb 24 last but asked for special casual leave from Feb 27 taking the advantage of weekend and public holidays. The matter triggered concern when the head of the departments received the leave petition together," the sources said adding that most of the offices faced shortage of Group-C level staff due to mass leave.
