Naidu woos secretariat employees with  5-day week carrot
Andhra Pradesh employees at the secretariat and other directorates located in Hyderabad have agreed to shift and work from new capital Amaravati on Monday.

The decision comes after Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu declared several goodies including a 5-day week.

“A 30% hike in house rent allowance for all those who will be shifting their home to Amaravati,” Naidu declared after he inaugurated office space at the interim secretariat in Velagapudi village in Amaravti during the early hours on Monday.

“The government will be building 5000 houses for the employees within a year. 5000 more will be built in phases,” Naidu said. Reacting positively the Andhra Pradesh Secretariat Employees Association representative U Murali Krishna has said the employees will be shifting their base from here to Amaravati by June as desired by the chief minister.

“We were not averse of shifting to Amaravati, but many employees have settled here for years. Their children are studying here, so 5-day week is a welcome offer,” he added. In March a delegation of employees who met the Municipal Administration Minister P Narayana and Chief Secretary S P Tucker had expressed shock over the tiny size of the office rooms being built at the interim secretariat.
