Mohali: Joint forum of Punjab electricity board employees staged a protest against Punjab government at YPS Chowk in Mohali, on Friday. The protesters raised the slogans against Punjab government and pressed their long pending demands of regularisation.
Speakers blamed that government is encouraging the contract system for fulfilling the thirty thousand vacant seats instead of doing fresh appointments. Even state government has decided that 726 grids will also come under contractual system.
By doing this 6534 regular posts will be abolished. Speakers further blamed that around two thousand part time vacancies of sweepers are also coming under contractors. Meanwhile heavy police force was deployed at the spot to maintain law and order situation and to stop the protesters from entering theChandigarh.
