State President N Shanmuganathan on Thursday expressed grief over Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswamy’s announcement to raise the retirement age of government employees to 60 years from the present 59 years.
He questioned whether the verdict reflects the poor state of the exchequer and the government is not able to give retirement benefits to government employees.
He said that the state government has failed to create jobs and getting a government job remains a dream for many youth.
Many of the vacant government positions are being managed with contractual staff through outsourcing. In addition, state and central government jobs were being filled largely by candidates from other states.
In such circumstances, the state government has decided to increase the retirement age, especially when there has been no such demand, he said.
