The state unit of the BJP has demanded that the NPF led government roll back the 6th ROP from April 1, 2010 to January 1, 2006 as per the memorandum submitted by CANSSSEA. A press release issued by BJP Nagaland, media cell, convener, Jaansillung Gonmei stated that the wishes of and the anguish of the state employees have to be taken into account despite the state government facing financial deficit. The release also stated that retired employees who had put in 35 yrs of service should not be ‘sidelined’ for the reason that the NPF government couldn’t “cough up” enough money to pay for their past loyalties. Further, it questioned as to why state employees were marginalized when central government employees like the IAS, IFS, IPS and others have gained from the policy. It also alleged that NPF government’s fund manager was trying to “shed its huge financial responsibility while hog washing the employees” that the much desired ROP has been implemented for “populist politics” and for the benefit of “new recruits”. It said the NDA government had wiped out major portion of state liabilities and debts in the past and wondered why the UPA government did not do the same for the benefit of the state employees at the same time asked why the NPF government could not ‘garner enough strength’ for the present and past employees as represented by the NSGWA and CANNSEA. Further it also alleged that the NPF government had “clamored” for partnership with the UPA stating in May 2009, the NPF had announced its unconditional support to the UPA government. While putting across that sufficient funds were “made available for the NPF led it wondered as to how the demands of NSGEWA and CANSSEA could not be met. Further, NPF led government which had taken the most surmountable task of forming a near one –party rule government in the state, should be able to provide and meet the demands of the state employees, it added. Understanding the predicament of the senior retired and current employees of the state, the BJP state president, M. Chuba has also demanded that ROP be rolled back with effect from January 1, 2006 as per the memorandum submitted by the CANSSEA so justice could be delivered. Meanwhile, Confederation of All Nagaland state Services Employees’ Association (CANSSEA) has reiterated that it has resolved to wait and watch the government policy and programme in regard to bringing pay parity with central government employees. CANSSEA in a press release informed all members that in no circumstances would it “budge a single inch in its earlier stand” of effective date of implementation of the central scales on January 2006. Further, CANSSEA also stated that skyrocketing food inflation in addition to whole sale price index have been “breaking the backbones” of the employees.
