Association of State Employees and Teachers (ASET) has alleged that the current financial problems facing the state was the outcome of the wrong policies which were followed by the various UDF and LDF governments in the state.
ASET president P Cletus said both the fronts which had been ruling the state for the last many decades had failed to recover the arrears of the lease amounts, because both fronts were conniving with defaulters.
Both the fronts had also failed to take steps to improve the financial position of the state.
He alleged that the State Government was using the current financial problems as a pretext to snatch away the benefits of the employees. Many benefits including the leave surrender facility are now being denied to the employees citing financial difficulties, Cletus said.
