Mann said the employees, who had threatened to sit on a pen-down strike in the coming days, could lose their jobs as there “are many unemployed people in the state whose services could be hired in place of them”.

Official sources said the stringent warning by the Chief Minister comes in the wake of revenue staff currently busy in collecting field reports of damage to crops, livestock, and houses in flood-hit areas, and their proposed strike would hit the functioning.

It is learned the strike call was given by the revenue employees in protest against the arrest of a patwari in a bribery case.
