Therefore, it will be important to see what decision the High Court will give on this petition.
Today is the third day of the strike
Today is the third day of government employees’ strike. Action under the MESMA Act has been initiated against the striking employees since yesterday. The reason for this is that even though the state government has announced the decision to form the study committee, it is not acceptable to the coordination committee. But due to this, the common people are suffering a lot. In many government hospitals, the patients are facing great inconvenience. So The work in the government office was stopped. On the other hand, although the 10th and 12th board exams are going on smoothly, the results of the 10th and 12th boards may be delayed due to teachers boycotting the paper examination.
