PDD employees protest over department’s alleged fake list issuance


Employees of Power Department Development (PDD) on Thursday staged a protest demonstration in Srinagar against the department for allegedly issuing a fake list of daily wagers of the department.

Scores of the PDD employees belonging to sub division Langate assembled in Srinagar’s press colony demanding the time bound and fair investigation in the issue.

The protesting employees said that they were 479 employees working in the department from last ten years as daily wagers and casual labours but now when the list is being prepared by the department it shows only 146 employees will be regularized.

The employees alleged that out of 146 employees eight workers whose name appeared in the list are not associated with it. “It is totally a fake list and we want an investigation into the case,” said one of the protesting employees Zahoor Ahmad.

The government has released the salary for all the 479 employees but the department claims that amount will be credited to 146 employees only, the protesting employees said.

The protesting employees alleged that Junior Engineer (JE) and Assistant Engineer (AE) of Handwara block is selecting the employees on their own choice.
