DA becomes Dearer as State FM keeps mum in Assembly


Kolkata: Despite the promises made by state government to clear the pending DA (Dearness Allowance) of the state government employees, state Finance Minister Amit Mitra maintained silence on the issue in assembly.

During the assembly session on Tuesday, Congress legislator Manoj Chakroborty questioned Mitra on the issue but no reply was given by Mitra. The stance by the finance minister made it clear that the government employees will have to wait a bit longer for the DA.

Discontent is brewing among the state government employees over government’s delay in clearing the long pending DA.
