With state election fast approaching, the various sections of the society are pressurizing the incumbent regime to concede to their demands.
It is in this context that the government staffers too have decided to stage a symbolic one day strike to force the government concede their demands.
The government staffers affiliated to various banners have applied for mass leave in this regard.
It is not as if the governent did not know of it and the strike has been announced suddenly.
The state government has so far no strategy to deal with the strike, it appears.
The strike has the requisite support of all the 27 organizations representing government staffers at various levels.
While the organization leaders have so far resorted to a day long strike, they have also threatened for an indefinite strike in case the government remains indifferent to their needs.>
