Don't cut salary, DKS tells govt
Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) president D K Shivakumar on Tuesday strongly opposed any move to cut salaries of government employees as hinted by Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa.
'My appeal to the CM is, be it government or non-government employees, salaries shouldn't be cut. We are the ones who've told them not to come to work,' Shivakumar told a news conference.
The former minister suggested that the government can stop projects of the public works, irrigation and social welfare departments among others. 'No government has reached such bankruptcy that it can't pay the salaries.
