The reason for employees restlessness is said to be pressure from their families. Apart from this, a section of the employees have started building pressure on the JAC to immediately call of the strike fearing action by the respective departments.

Highly placed government sources said employee leaders have been asked to call off their strike and report to duties within the next 72 hours. A section of the senior revenue staff have already assured the department head of resuming duties from Monday. With no breakthrough in talks with the respective department heads even on Friday, no activity has been reported from departments like energy, MAUD, panchayat raj, transport, treasury and revenue.

The festival of lights, Deepavali, is also giving blues to the employee leaders, who are being flooded with requests for small amounts. "With none of the political parties that promised to beg and support them financially during the strike period not coming forth with any assurance, we are feeling guilty about the situation. In a way, we are helpless," said the TEJAC leader.

Some of the employee leaders on condition of anonymity said they were being asked by a considerable section of the employees to call of the strike as they were under pressure from their families. "We are being asked to tone down our approach," said a TEJAC leader. "We are being asked to take a cue from teachers, RTC workers and coal miners who have called off the strike after getting an assurance from the government on the loss of man days and payment of salary during strike period," he added.
