Sanjay Nirupam hits out at MVA’s decision of 5-day working week, says ‘Are we rewarding them for their Kamchori?’

Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam seems to be unhappy with Maha Vikas Aghadi government’s decision of adopting five working days a week for the government employees. Recently Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray-led Maharashtra government approved the decision to implement five days a week norm for the government employees from February 29.

Taking a potshot at the government Sanjay Nirupam took to his Twitter handle and wrote, “A senseless decision by Maharashtra Govt to provide 5-day working week for state employees. What’s point in having 2 holidays every week? Govt staffs are already infamous for laziness. Are we rewarding them for their Kamchori?”

Currently, state government employees get holidays on second and fourth Saturdays. Now the employees will have to work for an additional 45 minutes daily, which means 3.75 additional hours in a week. However, all emergency services will be excluded from this 5-day work regime.

In various states like Rajashthan, Bihar, Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal, five days a week is applicable.
