Increase in retirement age of government staff
Bheemanna Gowda Patil Biradar (28) from Bijapur was here to meet Chief Minister Siddaramaiah to complain that the BJP government’s decision to increase the retirement age of government employees had deprived him of a government job.
Among the many who came for the “Janata Darshan” on Friday, he said that his hopes of becoming a sub-inspector of police were dashed after the retirement age was increased and the Police Department kept the recruitment process of sub-inspectors in abeyance.
“Soon, I will not be eligible for applying as I will cross the prescribed age limit. If the retirement age has been increased, the age limit to apply for government jobs should have also been increased,” Mr. Biradar told the Chief Minister who then promised him that the issue would be looked into.
Meanwhile, the parents of a child, Jayaadeesh Pannaj, complained that the school had cancelled the boy’s admission as he was suffering from a genetic skin problem.
The Chief Minister directed the officials to get the child re-admitted in Navodaya Kishore Kendra in Singapore Layout, Vidyaranyapura,in Bangalore.
While Doddamma from Halaguru in Mandya district complained that her land had been encroached upon, another person from Kanakapura sought compensation as he had suffered loss.
“When I was grazing my sheep on the banks of the Arkavathi, mud caved in and 100 heads of my sheep died,” he said.
