They said the workers held protest demonstrations and also submitted memoranda to the officers in this regard several times but due to delaying attitude of the officers at the helm of affairs, the career of a large number of workers has been jeopardized.
They said that Managing Director of the JPDCL and the concerned Chief Engineers are taking pains to the settle their cases but despite writing letters to the XEns concerned, the latter are least bothered to forward their cases. They said that due to negative attitude of the Divisional Level officers they are suffering badly and facing stagnation.
