Over four and half lakh government employees, including 1.5 lakh gazetted Group A and B officers, will go on a three-day strike from August 7 to protest against the state government’s failure to fulfil their demands, an employees’ organisation functionary said today. Bhausaheb Pathan of the State Government Class Four Employees Central Organisation told reporters today that over three lakh Group D employees would go on strike between August 7-9 for the implementation of the Seventh Pay Commission recommendations and several other issues.

G D Kulthe of the Maharashtra Rajya Rajapatrit Adhikari Mahasangh accused the state government of dillydallying on the demands made by gazetted officers and said they had no alternative but to strike work.
