7th Pay Commission latest news: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has promised to provide the benefits of 7th CPC recommendations to Tripura state government employees. However, there is a catch. Addressing his election rally in Tripura last week, PM Modi had said the state government employees would be able to get the benefits recommended by the 7th pay commission if the BJP government is voted to power in the state.

The BJP is fighting hard to dislodge the 25-year-old CPI(M) government in Tripura. In its bid to win the state, the party had made several promises. Implementing 7th Pay Commission recommendations is one of them. Addressing a rally at Sonamura on 8 February, Modi had questioned as to why the Left Front government had not introduced the 7th Pay commission benefits for state government employees.

The BJP “Vision Document” for Tripura elections, which was released by Union finance minister Arun Jaitley on Sunday, has also promised to implement the key recommendations of the 7th CPC for the state government employees of Tripura.

During his election roadshow in Tripura on Sunday, BJP chief Amit Shah had also said that the 7th CPC recommendations would be implemented if BJP comes to power.

During his rallies in Tripura last week, Modi had attacked the Left government for not introducing 7th CPC benefits for state employees. The prime minister had even accused that the ruling state government hasn’t even provided some basic services like ration cards to all. “”For something as basic as a ration card, people here have to approach the party office. Even when somebody gets murdered, police does not register a case unless they get the approval from the CPI(M),” PTI had quoted Modi as saying at an election rally at Sonamura in Sipahijala district.

Modi had further alleged that the state government was not using the funds released by the Centre for the benefit of the poor people of the state. “If Rs 100 is used for any work in Tripura, Rs 80 comes from the Centre. The Marxist government does not spend money for the development of the state and does not furnish details of expenditure,” PM had said
