Protests triggered here outside the office of the Executive Engineer, Public Health and Engineer Department on Monday, as the salaries of 20 Junior Engineers were withheld by the concerned officer, over non-submission of documents.
”The salaries of around 20 JEs have been withheld by the Executive Engineer of the North Division on the pretext of non-submission of the documents,” a senior official here said.
He said that one of the JEs, along with his wife and children, also staged protest outside the office of the Engineer carrying placards, which read ”Hamare papa ki salary rok di gayi hai’, ‘Hamare papa ke paas paise nahi hain’.
However, the Junior Engineers slammed this action of the Executive Engineer, PHE, North Division and appealed to the Governor to intervene into the matter.
”We want Governor to intervene and address the issue,” they said, adding that delay in non-submission of some of the documents does not mean that the salaries should be withheld and the families be left on God’s mercy.
