Chief Minister Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu said budgetary provision was made by the state government before announcing Old Pension Scheme and the State Cabinet has given its approval for the scheme after thorough discussion.

Talking to media persons at Una on Tuesday the CM said, “The state government is committed to fulfill ten guarantees given by the Congress party in its partigaya patra and all these would be implemented after allocating funds in a phased manner.”

He said, “The state government is concerned about continuing stalemate between Adani Cements and Truck Operators Unions and efforts are afoot by holding parleys with the Cement Company to resolve the dispute, however the state government would fight for the rights of the Truck Operators and watching their interests is our utmost priority.”

He said, “Though previous BJP government had announced to implement the recommendations of the pay commission for state government employees but failed to pay them arrears; impulsive decisions of the BJP government has led to increase in loans of the state government to whopping Rs 75000 crore and had left an unpaid amount of Rs 11000 crore to pay arrears to the employees, besides other unpaid allowances.”
