Panaji: Porvorim MLA Rohan Khaunte on Saturday assured to stand behind the government servants, who have been dragged into financial crisis, after playing with the House Building Allowance.

Khaunte set a deadline of 4-5 days for the government to adopt corrective measures by withdrawing the decision, failing which, he would be support the government servants to get the justice, even, if required, through legal means.

The MLA said that government’s act of increasing the interest on HBA to the government servants have completely upset their financial status, forcing them into the distress.

“Government has played with the financial health of the government servants for the sake of Rs 300 crore security bonds,” he alleged. Khaunte said that the cibil score of the government servants have also gone down after State government failed to pay the interest amount to the banks.

“In future, when these government servants will go for fresh borrowings, the cibil rating will be a thing to worry for them,” he pointed out. Khaunte said that the government servants, who have been active as Covid warriors, are paying price for the failure of Pramod Sawant-led government.

He said that the state government can decide whether to give new interest rate for fresh cases, but the old ones, should be left with the earlier commitments.

Adding salt to the wounds, the state government has also come up with the circular banning them from approaching any court or any other authority against the injustice meted out to them by the Chief Minister and his team.

Khaunte said that he will stand by with the government servants, in their fight, until issue is taken to the logical end. “If government does not act within 3-4 days, I will be with them to take further step, including a legal recourse,” he said.

The MLA pointed out that the state government is tempering with the finances of the government servants, at a time, when inflation has gone up. The rates of essential commodities have become double, compared to what they were before covid outbreak.
