PDD junior engineers condemn suspension of JEs, seek immediate revocation
5/18/2017 11:19:41 PM
Early Times Report
Jammu, May 18: An emergency meeting of Junior Engineers of Power Dev. Department was held today at PDD complex Gladni Jammu in view of the hasty suspension of two Junior Engineers by Chief Engineer EM&RE Kashmir on the pretext that Street lights in the Civil Sectt.Complex and some areas of Srinagar city were found on at 6.30p.m.
The forum members strongly resented and condemned the action of the Chief Engineer. It is pertinent to mention that the street lights were being repaired throughout the day for the past few days and all men and machinery was engaged on war footing to rectify the faulty street lights.
The Chief Engineer along with the Commissioner Secretary during the visit found that he street lights were on and without calling any explanation for the same, ordered the suspension of Junior Engineer which is nothing short of a draconian approach on part of the higher officers.
The forum in unequivocal terms gives a stern message to the officers concerned to revoke the unsubstantiated suspension on immediate basis otherwise we will be forced to go on mass casual leave and all repercussions shall be solely the responsibility of the concerned officers.
As a right of expression of resentment we Junior Engineers have decided to stop all official communication to the officers on immediate basis through any medium and absolute non cooperation without affecting the power supply as a first resort. If our genuine demand for revocation of the suspension order is not addressed immediately, we shall be forced to take stern measures affecting the power supply to all parts of J&K. The Junior Engineers being backbone of the system cannot be meted out step motherly treatment and be held responsible for each and every frivolous charge.
The Forum has impressed upon all the Junior Engineers of PDD across the state to strictly adhere to the protest programme intimated by the forum on the subject till the justice prevails.
