Agartala, February 13: The All India State Government Employees Federation (AISGEF) has called for a nationwide strike on February 16 to protest against the central government’s policies that they claim are anti-people, anti-worker and anti-farmer. In a show of solidarity, the Sanyukta Kisan Morcha and the Centre of Indian Trade Union (CITU) organised a rally on the streets of capital city on Friday.

The rally, which started from the Melarmath area, passed through various roads of the city and ended in front of Orient Chowmuhani. The participants raised slogans and banners against the Centre and demanded the fulfilment of their 24-point charter of demands.

The demands include the reintroduction of old defined benefit pension, the halt of privatization and corporatization of public sector, the stoppage of downsizing in government departments, the immediate filling of all vacancies, the scrapping of National Education Policy 2020, and the curbing of price hike.

The AISGEF has alleged that the central government has issued circulars that are against the interests of teachers and employees and has taken decisions that are detrimental to the welfare of workers, farmers and farm workers. The federation has also accused the Centre of ignoring the plight of the common people amid the pandemic and the economic crisis.

The Tripura Employees Coordination Committee (H.B. Road), which comprises of various state employees’ associations, has extended its support to the nationwide strike and the 24-point demands.
