Let House panel go into pay panel report: JD(U)

Prabhunath Singh (Janata Dal-United) on Monday recommended the setting up of a parliamentary committee to look into the Sixth Central Pay Commission recommendations, in the wake of grievances aired by employees particularly defence personnel and the IPS cadre.

Raising the matter in the Lok Sabha during a special mention, he said the recommendations, if implemented, would create an imbalance in society resulting in serious consequences for the country.

The presence of IAS officers in this, or any other panel, often tilted the outcome in their favour. A parliamentary committee would do justice to all, Mr. Singh said.

Hannan Mollah of the CPI(M) demanded the setting up of a special commission to look into the grievances of Bhopal gas leak victims. He said the entire world attention would be on Bhopal next year, which will mark the completion of a quarter century of the tragedy.
