JAMMU, Feb 28: All Jammu and Kashmir Graduate Engineers Association held a meeting, in which unwarranted arrest of four senior engineers was strongly condemned.
In the meeting, it was resolved to lodge a strong protest tomorrow at Lok Nirman Bhawan at 10:30 am and also at other district headquarters of Jammu Province, in which R&B Department engineers along with the engineers of Hydraulic Department, PHE, I&FC will also participate.
The association expressed concern over the Government move in which the engineers were arrested treating them as criminals.
In the meeting, the speakers said that it is very unfortunate that inspite rendering 24X7 selfless services, the engineers are being harassed.
