Lipika Pal, a retired State Govt employee finally received her all pensions, pending arrears after 1 year since BJP Govt had suspended her 2 months before her retirement in 2018.
This former Tripura Govt employee has indeed won over BJP Govt’s Politically motivated action. Now as per High Court’s verdict, the Govt Employees can Participate in Political Rally (not as an organizer but as listener) and also can share thoughts in Facebook.
The case was won before 1 year by Lipika Pal. The judgement was given by Chief Justice Akil Kureshi in a single bench.
But Tripura Govt kept on depriving her and around 4 months back, Govt once again lost the case after appealing in division bench.
But now finally she has received her all pendings. Advocate Purushottom Roy Barman said, “It is a historical verdict and nationally, it will have an impact in other cases also for the future with similar issues.
The Govt basically created a fear psychosis with such undemocratic steps by suspending employees for Govt criticism or political views.
But a Govt employee is also a citizen, can not be deprived of citizen’s right”.
