JAMMU: Power employees & engineers under the banner of JKPEECC- an amalgam comprising of various Unions of PDD led by Sachin Tickoo, General Secretary JKEEGA and Convener PEECC Jammu; Jaipal Sharma, Chairman JKPEECC & President DEA; Ashok Dubey Vice President JKEEGA, Sanjay Sharma DEA, Anil Slathia Linemen & Workers Union, Kulbir Singh EEU, H D Singh TEF, Tarun Gupta PDDEU, Balbir Singh Draftsman Association, Jasbir Singh ITI Employees, Akhil Kumar President PDL/TDL Workers, Gurmeet Singh, Purshottam Kumar CNGEU among others held a press conference in Jammu on Friday to highlight issue of non-fulfillment of commitments as assured in midnight agreement made between J&K UT Government representatives and JKPEECC on December 21, 2021 despite passage of more than a month.
While addressing media, the coordination committee leaders strongly resented the fact that all files pertaining to placements/regularization / transfers of employees of PDD are getting stuck in General Administration Department and office of the Chief Secretary. “Certain objections/ remarks are being raked up on proposals which are beyond comprehension and completely undermine wisdom of administrative department. Proposals duly vetted by the administrative department are entangled in various objections due to biased approach in GAD towards PDD. The same is reflected in all cases as placements/ regularization/ transfers pertaining to other sister engineering departments sail through expeditiously while PDD, where placements on hundreds of vacant posts from AE to SE have been turned down on one pretext or another after weeks of shuffling in e-office within GAD and office of the Chief Secretary .It is astonishing that AEEs, who had been promoted in Jan 2021 have not been adjusted against hundreds of vacant posts till date,” they added. The leaders further said that 20,000 employees of PDD, presently on deputation to these carved out corporations, are feeling dejected that Government is not serious to resolve their issues and are running out of patience. “JKPEECC, in consultation with all constituent unions, has decided to give a 15-day notice to the Government to issue regularization orders/ clearing pending DPC & placement/ promotion/ adjustment orders of Engineering/ Executive/ Ministerial staff, whose proposals already stand submitted by the administrative department for approvals,” they maintained, adding that JKPEECC shall review the progress on February 5, if any made during these fifteen days and accordingly shall announce date of agitational programme.
