Take sympathetic view of electric employees demands: CPI(M)

SRINAGAR, Oct 11: The Communist Party of India (M) today called upon the government to engage leaders of Electric Employees Union, who are on strike, for result-oriented talks.
In a statement here party state secretary of the CPI(M) Mohammad Yousuf Targami said government should immediately engage leaders of the union for result-oriented talks to address their genuine grievances.
“Several problems may crop up in the wake of unbundling of the department, which need to be taken care of in a proactive manner in consultation with employees’ leaders,” he said.
Mr Targami all the stakeholders have to be taken on board while introducing reforms in the system.
He said that the issues of health insurance, amendment in service rules and defining working hours constitute genuine demands of the electrical employees, which the government should look into with magnanimous and sympathetic mindset.
He said accommodation and flexibility should be made benchmark in the parleys to avoid any kind of prolonged confrontation, saying that rigidity on either side will only complicate issues much to the discomfiture of  consumers.
He said the government should always address the genuine concerns of its employees on priority as it is they which execute the policies and programmes of the government at the grassroots level.
