In a press release issued here today, the union said that the "inspection'' conducted by the ADB officials at the Directorate of Education the other day was an indication of what was happening in the State. The Ministers were busy with group-fighting and had little time to attend to their duties. In the meantime, the ADB officials were taking over the reins of the administration, the union said.
While everything else in the Government had come to a standstill because of the Congress group rivalry, the agenda set by the ADB alone was being pursued with efficiency. Under the Modernising Government Programme (MGP) dictated by the ADB, jobs were being slashed ruthlessly and the Government was stepping out of all the service sectors, the union alleged.
It said that steps to abolish 17,138 posts in the Government were progressing fast. Over the last two days, 313 posts had been abolished, it said.
The union said that the Antony Government's attitude towards the employees was more or less the same as that of the Jayalalithaa Government's in Tamil Nadu, where over one-and-a-half lakh employees were shown the door recently for launching a strike. ``Such autocratic tendencies are creeping into the outlook of those who wield power in Kerala also,'' the union said.
