Supreme Court reassured High court verdict. State Government’s petition to Supreme Court, against the high court verdict on salary challenge, was a slap to the State Government. The Supreme Court had criticized the Government and dismissed the petition.
Demanding a disagreement paper from those who are not a part of the salary challenge is not required. Why an individual should insult themselves with such an action.
The court also added that the fund donated may not be used for the flood cause. The Government should build that confidence among its people. The judges also added that even they have contributed to the flood fund.
Supreme court verdict about salary challenge setback to Kerala government’s arrogance, says Ramesh Chennithala.
Opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala said to the media that it was the Chief Minister’s stubbornness that led to the case being dragged to Supreme Court after getting the adverse verdict from High court.
The Supreme court judgment in Salary Challenge is a setback to the government’s arrogance. He said that it was the Chief Minister’s stubbornness that led to the case being dragged to the Supreme Court after getting an adverse verdict from High court. Ramesh called upon to collect the compensation from the Chief Minister’s salary.
Chennithala said that the verdict was due to government’s failure and called upon the government to return the dissent note following the Supreme court order that collecting dissent note for salary challenge would affect the self-prestige of the employees.
He also called upon the State finance minister Thomas Issac to tender an apology following his public insult of the employees who had given dissent note.
Kerala society which struggled and stood as one during the devastating floods and after is now divided due to the salary challenge, Ramesh said.
He called upon the government to rewrite the order on salary challenge so that all employees can contribute the funds protecting their dignity, self-respect and financial condition.
The UDF had called for a separate account for Flood relief funds and this is now becoming more of a necessity as even the Supreme Court had already mentioned that there is no confirmation whether the money collected through CMDRF is using for flood relief purposes.
