In a statement signed by 12 members of its executive, the organisation said the strike call was given as there was no other alternative. ``There is no need for us to agitate on the dictates of outsiders. The proposed struggle concerns with our rights. So, we will not be intimidated by any repressive measure of the Government''.
As a way out to the present tangle, the council urged the Chief Minister to hold another round of talks with the unions, the statement said.
`Strike against public interest'
The Dravidar Kazhagam general secretary, K.Veeramani, has urged State Government employees to give up their proposed move to go on an indefinite strike from July 2, taking into consideration the prevailing drought situation in the State.
In a press release here today, Mr.Veeramani said when the Government was forced to suspend some of the welfare schemes owing to a financial crunch, it was not proper on the part of the employees to insist on their demands. Despite its financial constraint, the Government agreed to sanction Rs. 552 crores to the employees. As the strike would lead to a heavy loss to the exchequer and inconvenience to the public, he appealed to them to drop their strike plan and negotiate with the Government.
