Rajasthan Elections 2023: CM Gehlot demands Election Commission to announce DA and bonus for state employees


Assembly elections are going to be held in Rajasthan, the dates have been announced and along with it the code of conduct has also been imposed. In such a situation, now CM Ashok Gehlot cannot make any announcement. But he has one thing in his mind and that is that the files of DA and Diwali bonus of the state employees should be cleared.

CM Ashok Gehlot has made a demand to the Election Commission regarding this. CM said that the Central Government has increased the DA of the employees and for the last few years, his government has continued the practice that as soon as the Central DA increases, an announcement is made to increase the DA of the employees in the state. CM Gehlot said that he has cleared the file regarding increase in DA of state employees and sent it to the Chief Secretary's committee and from there it has been sent to the Election Commission. 

In such a situation, the CM said that even before now this issue has passed without any delay, so the employees should still get the benefit of increase in DA immediately. Along with this, the CM also advocated for Diwali bonus to government employees. CM said that as the Finance Minister, he has already cleared the bonus files of the employees.
