Government works were adversely disrupted as the Mantralaya employees went on a day-long mass leave on Tuesday. With the movement of staff, there was a silence inside Mantralaya which otherwise used to remain busy. Employees right from peon till under secretary remained on mass leave and owing to this reason, government works suffered adversely.
They gathered at the entrance gates of mantralaya and raised slogans, pressing for their demands which mainly include grade pays and restoration of old pension scheme. Madhya Pradesh Sachivalayeen Karamchari Sangh, MP Sachivilaya Stenographer Sangh etc are leading the protest.
