Basavaraj Bommai, the chief minister of Karnataka, has urged every employee of the state’s government to put in an hour more each day. On November 10, 2022, Bommai was addressing at a gathering where a delegation from the Karnataka State Government Employees Association was supporting him in his efforts to form the 7th Pay Commission and impose a revised pay scale for state government employees.
Bommai urged the workforce to put in an additional hour of work in order for the State to advance quickly and contribute to the greater goal of making India a $5 trillion economy. He placed a specific emphasis on aiding the state’s underprivileged, oppressed, and female citizens. Bommai stated that Karnataka should contribute around $1 trillion toward the goal of making India a $5 trillion economy.
He mentioned that the State had a Rs. 5000 crore revenue deficit when he took office. He did admit that state government officials put in a lot of effort and achieved all of their goals, if not more. He expressed his gratitude in particular to the police and the healthcare sector for their round-the-clock assistance during the global pandemic.
With inflation on the rise, Bommai said on the updated pay scale that it is crucial to earn the proper amount of money at the right time. The State government made the decision to implement the updated pay scale for all employees for this reason. The CM went on to say that he wanted every employee to work diligently and honestly, leaving the rest up to him.
