Government employees across India have demanded same kind of farewell on their retirement as Sachin is getting. They have decided to gather in large number at Ramlila Maidan to get the attention of central government.

“Why is our retirement not like Sachin? I have also worked for my country for more than 35 years. That is almost 12 years more than Sachin,” a Govt employee fumed.

Government employees have further designed placard with #GovtEmployeeGovtEmployee and #ThankYouGovtEmployee on the lines of Sachin’s treatment on Twitter.

In response to why employees want same kind of farewell as Sachin getting, they said they deserve it, “Yes, we deserve it. We’ve lot of similarities. We worked for same Country. Even some of us have given services to our country for 15-20 years more than Sachin. Further we too have scored worked in different conditions (like getting transferred etc) and share many other similarities.”

Sachin is playing his 199th Test match and will retire after playing his 200th Test match. BCCI & Starsports already geared-up for Sachin’s retirement.

“My wife is 6 yrs elder to  me. Even my height is almost equal to Sachin’s height. So, I am expecting my wax Statue along with Sachin,” another Govt employee cited similarities between him and Sachin.
