The YSRCP government, headed by Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, seems to be running into new trouble every other day. One after the other, the YSRCP government is facing more and more problems every day, and now, it’s because of the WhatsApp exits by thousands of employees working in village secretariats. They all exit their WhatsApp groups, as a sign of protest, as the CM failed to fulfil his promise of awarding them ‘permanent employee’ status by confirming their probation period for the last two years.
Jagan promised to give them permanent employee status in two years which expired on October 2, 2021. But he failed to do so even in January 2022 now. As a result, they all exit the official WhatsApp groups of the AP government, which instruct them on their job chart and duties every day. These groups are run by the joint collectors in each district. Officials are warning employees of removal from jobs if they exit from WhatsApp groups but it failed to stop employees from exiting groups.
On the other hand, Jagan has now made a new promise that all these employees would be made permanent employees by June 30th, in an attempt to salvage the situation. In the meantime, the government is said to be wondering how to get the situation under control. It is now to be seen what will happen here on.
