JKEEU expresses dismay over Mantri's statement
Srinagar, Feb 8: J&K Electrical Employees Union (JKEEU) has expressed dismay over the statement of MoS Power regarding the integrity of the field staff in an interview aired by Radio Kashmir.
“JKPDD is a 24x7 line department which has been serving the people for over a hundred years. It was felt that the Minister being a new incumbent has not yet understood the complex working conditions in which the field staff delivers service to the populace,” President of JKEEU Abdul Salam Rajpori said in a statement.
“JKPDD is an important Government Department with social responsibilities and has never shied away from legitimate duties. However the employees of the department are derived from the social fabric of the society and contain a few undesirable elements like any other setup, which are identified within the organization and punitive action is taken within the purview of the law. Such statements by an Honorable Minister demoralize the employees who actually require encouragement in view of the odds working against reforms in power sector,” he added.
