Criticising the Left-affiliated coordination committee of state government employees, Banerjee said the body should now be dismantled as it did no work.

"They have no work besides criticising others. They are shameless. They did no work for the last 34 years and now, too, are not working," she said while adding that such employees were holding up various files.
She, meanwhile, announced that housing loans would be restarted for the welfare of employees. Rs 100 crore has been earmarked for the same under a scheme entitled 'Akanksha'.

A health scheme has also been extended for another two years under which government employees would be able to avail themselves of cashless hospitalisation facility of up to Rs 1 lakh.
"We have added new hospitals to the list and also (expanded the disease cover)," Banerjee said.

As to contractual employees, she said none would lose jobs but, due to the financial burden, they would not be regularised.

Urging the employees to work properly, she told them, "you are the face of good governance".
