J&K electrical engineers observe day long protest
A day long protest by the members of J&K Electrical Engineers Association was observed at Srinagar, Jammu and Leh to express resentment over the callous attitude of government towards regularization and non-implementation of Assured Career Progression of engineers as applicable in other departments.
The protests were led by Association President Pirzada Hidayatullah at Srinagar, General secretary Neeraj Sharma at Jammu and Wangial Phunsok at Leh. All the three meetings were attended by rank and file of engineers.

The engineers noted with great despair that state government is taking the fraternity for a ride in respect of regularization and inaction on the recommendations made at different levels with regard to extending running grades based on length of service put by engineers as is prevalent in other government departments.

Pirzada said that the administrative set up of state must understand the gravity of situation and should stop the adhocism by non filling of vacant posts at all levels, giving additional charge without regular promotion. The Government should address the genuine problems to honour the peaceful agitation.

Neeraj Sharma said that the assured career progression scheme is gathering dust in civil secretariat for one reason or other for the last ten years.

The Association in its press note has appealed to the Chief Minister to intervene in this matter immediately. Any further delay would lead to further damage to the working of department that may affect the essential services. The engineers will resort to 3 hour power strike on April 18 if government failed to resolve the issue.
