As per press release, the Shastri said that Finance Minister's budget document will give an overall flip to process of development in the state, and improve the condition of working class. Shastri while talking to media persons here said that Finance Minister's assurance regarding regularization of daily rated workers will come through his budget speech. Similarly provision for implementation of 7th pay commission will adequate be kept in the budget proposals. "Already states reeling under financial crunch like Uttarakhand, U.P, Manipur, Punjab, Haryana and others have already announced implementation of the same, Jammu & Kashmir state will also get benefitted by the same." Shastri said. Shastri further said that since the centre has liberally funded the state, prolonging the implementation of the 7th pay commission will be a dangerous consequence.
