The government employees’ strike coupled with the bus strike had virtually crippled the functioning of the district  administration on Tuesday.

According to sources, out of the nearly 1,500 government employees at the Civil Station only around 30 turned up for work. About 15 to 20 people came to offices in the Civil Station, while seven offices, including PWD (bridges) and sanitation office, remained closed.

The major offices that worked were the RTO Office, Planning Office and Krishi Bhavan. Maximum attendance was reported at the Collectorate. The employees said the bus strike has hit the functioning of the civil station as only some sections of the government employees were on strike. No untoward incident was reported in the wake of the strike, except a verbal duel between the striking organisations and those against it. “It had happened when the protestors demanded the staff of the Congress-affiliated organisations to cooperate with the strike,” sources said.

When the CPM-affiliated NGO union and CPI- affiliated Joint Council took out the protest on the Civil Station premises, the Congress-affiliated organisations took out a counter protest. “Police were deployed on every floors. They escorted us to our offices,” the employees said.  There were reports that many employees had gone on leave to escape from participating in the strike.
